Rice noodles and some dim sum

On Saturday my parents drove down for a visit, stopping at Ranch99 (the one near Berkeley) on the way.  They showed up with fresh dim sum, wide rice noodles, seafood, vegetables, fruit, and tea, making my kitchen and me very happy.  For dinner we had rice noodles stir-fried with a green (that I think is called Chinese flowering cabbage) and some seafood, along with several dim sum items: shrimp dumplings, chive dumplings, tofu-skin packages, radish cakes, crispy shrimp balls, and flaky baked dumplings I don't know the name of.  Many cups of green tea, and a sponge cake roll for dessert.  Thanks, Mom and Dad!
