Hello June 2017

1 Jun 2017 – Cook & Share A Pot Of Curry

Tue: to those celebrating enjoy your 粽子 ZongZi rice dumplings – based on lunar calendar the 5th day of the 5th month, 端午节 Dragon Boat Festival 2017 falls on today. Good memories of the delicious dumplings paternal grandmother made. Pix downloaded.

#2&3 & I gave Zuno (who did not seemed to mind) a bath using my shampoo – of course it’s one of those 12fl oz .98c shampoo but he now smells like me, hahaha 🙂 #1 had the girls’ Track Team home for a year ending pizza party while I snoozed (shows how tired I must have been! thus, no pix) in-spite of 15 teenage girls 🙂 🙂

Wed: cooked a pot of chicken+veggie curry to share with neighbours&friends and to celebrate the diversities of culture, this time round here in CAE. Appreciations to Haley&Brian for hosting this at their home and tkx for yummy home-made brownies. Good to meet Sarah&Eric.

Special tkx to Haley for a signed-copy of her book, enjoyed it. Here is to my OSL May-May (little sister in Chinese), she does not need to think – summer is here and looking forward to seeing her&family again this month.

The last time Cook & Share A Pot Of Curry was in Norway 6yrs ago, in the good company of Kirsten, Mette&Toril – neighbours from Piggsoppgrenda. Cooking curry reminds me of 2incidents (1987&2011).

Some of the ingredients used in curry, but of course impossible to get them all here. Used the ready-made packet (from Japan) and have found this brand to be OK. The mild version in mild enough that even the kids like it. According to Linn curry is Indian stew and I agree. Pix downloaded.

These treats arrived in time for the summer holidays, tkx to cousin Wilki in HI for his care-package, such a thoughtful gesture. Been a long time ago I had to prepare Chinese sausages and not quite sure how.
