Dumpling Soup (TJs cookbook series)

Dinner tonight, courtesy of Trader Joes Cookbook (thanks Kim!). I substituted my mom's homemade pork gyoza for the TJs gyoza, and sauteed them with some sliced onions and frozen Harvest Hodgepodge. In the meantime, I heated up a carton of the TJs freerange chicken broth, two eggs, a little soy sauce, and wakame (seaweed) in a pot. Added the gyoza veggie mix to the pot when the gyoza was cooked through. Added a bit of sesame oil, and voila!

Kirkland museum

One of the first things I did during my sojourn to Denver was visit the Kirkland museum, chock full of decorative arts of mostly the 20th century, as well as works by its namesake, Vance Kirkland. I had no idea of who Kirkland was prior to my visit, but he is apparently Denver's premier artist, who is possibly most famous for his "dot" paintings.

Kirkland would suspend himself from the ceiling via these straps, so that he could hover over his works in progress and create his perfect dot shapes.

Works by other local artists were on display as well.
