11 October 2009

It has been a sad weekend. Jim's dear aunt Theone passed away on Friday. He will be going to Fargo on Wednesday for the services. She was a great lady and lived life to the fullest. Jim was very close to her and spent a lot of time with her growing up. Otherwise, it's been business as usual. We had the Taste of Canton event on Thursday this week, and over 1700 people attended! It was great to see that many people in the Historic Downtown Loop. I volunteered to be in the dunking tank, and every kid that took a turn got to dunk me! I still have water in my ears! I made a big mess in the kitchen tonight by cooking a "simple" Chinese dinner! I always forget how intense Asian cuisine can be to prepare. Lots of prep work but very little cooking time. For some reason, all of my pans were sticking tonight. Maybe it's the humidity? However, it all turned out pretty good. Hope everyone had a great weekend!

The Menu:

- Cashew Chicken with Steamed Rice

- Broccoli in Oyster Sauce

- Turkey and Chive Potstickers with Soy Ginger Dipping Sauce

- Ginger Ice Cream with Fortune Cookies

The Dunk Tank!
