All good things
A lovely parcel from the lovely Jen, long-awaited (Canada Post were on strike), with a birthday book for O and some crispy chow mein noodles for me. Food and books. My two favourite things. Now I can finally make the Chinese Christmas Cookies Jen sent me the recipe for. It is a recipe that speaks to my heart, and my stomach. There are only four ingredients (I start to feel faint when faced with a recipe that goes beyond four) and those ingredients are: chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, crispy chow mein noodles and, the clincher, peanuts. I am currently checking out house prices in Ottawa, in anticipation of instant addiction.
