Definitely too little time.
That’s why you need recipes that only take 15 minutes to make. That’s only about 3 songs.
Asian Dumplings With Soy Slaw is a fun, quick meal. Crisp, pan fried dumplings sit atop a cool soy sauce dressed slaw. Peanuts add extra crunch. Yum.
18 oz fresh or frozen dumplings or pot stickers
1/4 cup rice vinegar
3 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons soy sauce, plus more for serving
Hot sauce to taste (optional)
1 (16-ounce) bag coleslaw mix
5 green onions, thinly sliced on the diagonal
1/4 cup roasted peanuts
Cilantro, chopped (optional)
1. Cook the dumplings according to package directions. (Pan-frying is preferable to steaming.)
2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the vinegar, sugar, soy sauce, ¼ cup water, and hot sauce (if desired). Add the coleslaw mix and toss.
3. Divide the slaw among individual plates and sprinkle with the green onion, cilantro and peanuts. Top with the cooked dumplings.
4. Serve with additional soy sauce on the side.

There is A Lot of music out there. I try to keep up with it as much as I can, but it’s hard.
This week had me wondering how I know so much about a bunch of musicians and at the same time miss out on so many more.
I don’t recall anything about Pete Seeger. I know his famous songs, of course, but never knew anything about the man until he died this week. And he was around for a long time!
The Grammys was another eye (ear) opener, introducing me to a bunch of acts I didn’t know.
Today I was watching Saturday Night Live on DVR and the musical guest was Bastille.
And these guys have been around since 2010!
Anyway, I thought Bastille’s two song performances were really good. Lead singer Dan Smith is pretty adorable, too. Actually, the whole band is.
I spent this morning checking out their music. This remix of ‘Things We Lost In The Fire’ is really lovely.
Check out Bastille on the band’s Website, where you can learn of upcoming world tour dates and buy their music.
