A friend of mine has some family that regularly goes to China. They enjoy bringing back little toys and cookies for everyone when they return. It was neat during the Olympics (although we didn’t get to watch) to take a box of these cookies to our small group church meeting. Many of their desserts are made with green tea. Sounds strange, but they are really tasty. My favorite was the green tea crisp (top) – which actually has a crispy, light wafer and a brittle-type sweet nut topping that has a slight hint of curry. If you like Indian food and mild Mid-Eastern sweets (like Baklava), you would love these cookies. Who knows, maybe you can get them at your Asian grocer?
Sorry for the totally off topic post today, but I’m on my way out the door for a doctor appointment and Choir for the kids. Hopefully we’ll get to hear the heartbeat today. Tomorrow is officially week 11 for the gummy bear.
Have a super day – hopefully it will go better than yesterday’s homeschooling! If you were reading my twitter messages, you’ll know that we had a rotten day yesterday! Maybe it is just the devil on the kids’ backs for making the decision to follow Jesus. Stranger things have happened.
