It can all be done in one day/solo..If your left uninterrupted.
The local ladies, myself included usually go to our local Hispanic grocery store and by a few Lbs of pre made dough.Not all of them have the resources to do that.While your there they can point out what size steamer would suit you.It's a cheaper and most times guaranteed in time and taste by the stores.If your not happy they probably have already heard and will give you a free batch.The dough is made twice daily around here.
Trust me tell them what your planning they will point you out to all the the right ingredients and methods on how to make your own.Right down to the best spices to use for any type of meat.
They can be frozen ahead of time.Don't forget the ziploc bags :)
