A late lunch was some of Trader Joe's Steamed Chicken Soup Dumplings (that can be cooked from frozen to ready to eat  in either a steamer pot or in the microwave). I chopped up lettuce and a tomato and used buffalo ranch dressing and some of Franks Sweet Chili sauce for the dumplings. SUPER good!!
 

 
 

All I know. Nuff said. Happy TGIF. Ciao.
