Green Chopsticks Food Tour

Writers   Jamie ,   Jeanne  and my family go on a food tour!!!  We were all invited to a very special food factory, “Green Chopsticks" which is headquartered in Alhambra, CA.  We toured their kitchen where delicious dumplings are made in a state of the art facility.  In order to go inside the dumpling kitchen, we first had gone through a total body sanitizing process.  We washed our hands, put on our white sanitary coats, hair hats and went through an air closet which removed any unwanted particles on our body.  We then stepped into a cleaning agent to cleanse our shoes and off we went.  We were sanitized from top to bottom in a matter of minutes. Walking into the facility, the temperature was North Pole cold.  Inside, the floor was specially made for this state of the art kitchen to maintain a clean and safe environment.  We were all very impressed with how they cared about their food handling standards.  Image a place that is completely sealed with little magical elves

We Won the Liebster Award! :)

My blogger friend Jamie from Minnesota Girl in LA  blog awarded me the "Liebster Award.  This award is bestowed on blogs who have great value and deserve more attention.  I have never won a blogger award before, so of course I researched it (I am a geek).  I found that  Liebster is German for dearest, beloved or favorite. Being someones favorite is something that makes me smile. I write to inspire others to get out and experience life with family. Combining travel with education is my passion. Not everyone can learn through reading only, therefore learning through hands on experience is key to finding your passion.   It is an honor to receive this award and nominate other Bloggers for "Liebster Award. Here is my pick of (5) great Bloggers who deserve to be read: Jamie - Minnesota Girl in Los Angeles Desiree - Sarcastic, Funny, and Brutally Honest Romina - Just Another Hat Alexis -  North on Harper Carolyn - This Talk Ain’t Cheap   I hope that you w
