Though I live in California now, and while my family was back home eating colcannon, corned beef and cabbage, soda bread and green cake and sherbert, I was enjoying something quite different. My dear Chinese teacher, Eric invited me and several of my friends to his house so he could treat us to authentic Chinese food. O_O
|Eric cooked while Javen and Sara served.|
|Duck soup, duck with fermented black bean sauce, pork and peppers, Coke-chicken, fish, rice, greens, bok choy, green tea, black soy drink, oolong tea, leng tea, black sesame dessert and beard papa's.|
I hope this can be a new tradition of mine on St. Patrick's Day. Granted Eric won't be here for much longer but I can eat authentic Chinese food on March 17th in honor of him.
Regardless of the change in food, I still had to wear my green. I also made a fun headband out of paper that I donned for about 5 minutes before I felt too silly.
A couple days after St. Patrick's Day, I ran by Essential Chocolate Desserts to see what discounted holiday desserts they had...I wanted a cupcake but all they had were minty-chocolate cupcakes and I wasn't feeling it. So I got their "gourmet" ding-dong instead.
|Tried using natural light, evidently, it wasn't enough.|
PPS. The Farrums gave me a Tokidoki shirt and jacket! O_O
PPPS. I was productive and got my taxes finished today. While the Farrums was held captive at my house. Sorry about that Farrah.
PPPPS. Turns out my fave LA bookstore, Piccolo's is closing in a couple days. Expect a Memorial post soon.
