I'm in the Tacoma/Seattle area right now and just finished making my egg rolls and pineapple sweet & sour sauce for my duaghter and son, and their husband and wife. My son in law isn't a big fan of egg rolls, or the veggies that usually go into them. He told me that my egg rolls were the best he'd ever eaten and that they were very good. We also shared them with one of my son's neighbors, and elderly lady who lives nearby. She also told me they were great, and that the sweet and sour sauce was the best she'd ever eaten. It's no big thing for me. I've been making and eating this recipe (I created it
) for about 25 years now. But everyone seems to love them. They aren't difficult at all, but are different from any others I've eaten. When I created the recipe, I just threw together what seemed to be a good mixture of Asian veggies that were readily available, and played with the sweet & soiur sauce until it tasted right. But I've gotten this response from quite a few people.
So what am I thinking? I'm thinking that I'm fortunate to have a few recipes that bring a smile to those who eat them. I'm thinking that whenever we can, we should give our best to those we love, and anyone who comes to the table.
Whatg have I been thinking since last Wednsday when I arrived here with my wife? I've been thinking how amazed I am at how beautiful my grandaughters are. The newest baby, born Sept. 10th, puts the Gerber baby to shame. She is soooooo pretty. And the one-year old, her Daddy isn't the only one who is wrapper around her fingers. Talk about a cutie, and so curious about the world. She also loves to dance to my harmonica. We are going to get along very well, her and I.
