After an adventurous week-long vacation in the Pacific Northwest, I have returned to post entries on the blog.
The vacation was wonderful. I’ll post entries soon.
In the meantime, this needs to be said: Bean curd is still central in my life. I ran errands today and when I returned my wife was kind enough to have this bowl of chicken and tofu soup waiting for me.
First: Thank you. Second: It was delicious.
I would tell you her recipe. But I don’t know it. When I see her, I’ll ask.
There’s nothing like the sight and sounds of water.
On our first day, when we departed, rain fell from the sky. So, instead of driving my family and parents to Deception Pass State Park to likely sit in the rain for our planned picnic, we adjusted our plans.
We drove to Top Gun Seafood Restaurant, a tasty Cantonese restaurant in the Seattle suburb of Bellevue. We ordered plates of dim sum.
That way, as my reasoning went, if everything else on the trip turned out to be soggy and overcast, at the very least, we could say: Man, that dim sum meal at the beginning of our trip was the tops!
Yes, I’ve dined there before. This time, we ordered Japanese-style bean curd with shrimp on top – a fantastic way to go.
That is one lesson that I learned from traveling to different places: When in doubt, find delicious food, fill your belly, appreciate what you have and smile.
