Asian Market Trip
I had a chance to run downtown this week. Living out in the country, I try to avoid going into town as much as possible. This week, I made the trek so that I could go out to lunch with my mom. So-so lunch. Nothing to write home about but luckily for me, the restaurant was located next to an Asian Market. I was able to find all sorts of goodies that I can't find at my local grocery store: freshly dried hot peppers, good sesame oil, Chinese noodles, dal, dried fungus --the kids were excited about that one. Not! All sorts of goodies I hope to have fun experimenting with sometime soon. And I was excited to find that the owner of the market teaches a month cooking class. I'm doubly excited because I was able to try one of her egg rolls at the blues festival we went to recently and they were to die for! I can't wait!
