Boiled Dumplings

Dumplings are the symbols that represent the uniting in Chinese culture, and people usually eat dumplings when their whole family is uniting again. Also, when is around the Lunar New Year. Dumplings are made by flour, meats, and sometimes there would be greens in it. There are many different ways to cook dumplings, such as steamed, boiled, fried and etc. I like the boiled one especially, it is every tasty if u eat with different dressings. Eating dumplings is having a super special meaning for me. I was living with my grandparents all the time before I migrated to America because my parents were working in the place that is so I do not have many chances to meet them every year. But when every time I know I am going to eat dumplings in a day then I will see my parents in that day, it happens every time. As long as it happens, eating dumplings became a great event that I wish will happen. And for my children I hope them eat dumplings because it means the united of a family but I do not want them to view dumplings like me, reason is I want to be a qualified father.
