No egg--just wheat flour, salt, water, oil, and green onions.

Very labor-intensive, but worth it.

Apparently the official spelling is Cong Yo Bing. Pronounced Tsong Yo Bing in my in-laws' dialect (Shanghainese) though. No family party is complete without this simple delicacy.

Pair of fours, but it would have been more interesting if one of the fours had been a two instead.

hi, lmjb.

Balthasar! Fancy meeting you here!

I'm also from the OTT (One True Thread--not meant as a slight to other threads, but rather a reference to the One True Comic, 1190-Time :) ) Nice to see other OTTers, and others, here.

Never knew the real name for those Chinese onion pancakes. I just call them delicious. I live near San Francisco, and there's a restaurant there called House of Pancakes (not to be confused with the so-called International one) that has all sorts of Chinese pancakes. Mmm, wish I could go there right now...

I'll bring some donuts (which are also a thing in the OTT). These are onion donuts, to go with the onion pancakes. :D

ok, I was a little afraid it could have been for my Ott Time Thread

ETA: the forums just tried to doublepost this post and then complained that I can't post two posts at the same time.

More importantly, if we do have less nothing than before, does that necessarily mean we have more something than before?

I'd meant to mention it earlier that while pretzels are not normally served with mustard, it is common to have them with butter. In fact, the ones in the picture had been cut open and buttered - you can see it if you look at them very closely. Buttered pretzels are a popular snack here in the south-west of Germany, where I'm from.

For some reason, while Butterbrezel sounds completely innocuous to me in German, "buttered pretzel" in English seems to me as if it were slightly naughty.
Apart from Forum Games, mostly active on the One True Thread.
If you need help understanding what's going on there, the xkcd Time Wiki may be useful.

Addams thanks all of us who helped. Her life is much better now.
