First Time Wokking, and She's Already Dropping Eggs!

Since A certain KDHS and VRP have yet to claim their Christmas gifts, I cannot blog about them yet.  Therefor, I shall share with you my wok. Christmas Eve, father told me I was going to have to pick between a certain present under the tree and one that was coming in the mail some time later. Only, I didn't get to know what the other one was, or even see the box. I just got to open the one under the tree. Well, the one under the tree was a lovely cast iron skillet. But I figured the other one was coming from far away- and he said the woman he ordered it from was really interesting and that I'd probably really like talking to her. So I chose the other gift. And guess what? It was a wok set, ordered from a tiny- wonderful- shop in San Francisco's China town. is the store's website. I spent a large part of today seasoning and re-seasoning it, and tonight, I made egg drop soup! It was lovely! So here's the set and the soup. PS- you really should check out the site- they have all kinds of cool things!!!!

Love you all!

Christmas Eve!!!! Merry Christmas Eve!!!!

Hello my lovelies, just a few flashy pics to post before the holiday. I have more to put up, after some of you receive your presents..... This is Dylan's dream catcher, made with amber and rosewood. Then you have two pictures of my final project for Chinese calligraphy. It says, "Dost thou know the pillow is a ferryboat rowing towards dreams? Dost thou know my dreams are an old quilt covering thee?" And then my sweetheart roommate wearing her new necklace from her sweetheart roommate. She hadn't stopped wearing it. She loves it!!!!!

Love you all, and wishing you a Merry Christmas!

I'll be back soon.

Suite Christmas Party

In order, these pictures are of Christmas candy- the candy cane hershey kisses are just like peppermint bark. MMM. CO's gift, a penguin ice cube tray, and then the ice cubes. So cute. Then lots of Chinese food, including Gong Bao chicken, spicy green beans, scallion pancake, szechuan eggplant, celery and egg tarts, as well as fried rice. Then the seven treasures of the Chinese kitchen: vinegar, oil, soy sauce, scallions, garlic, ginger, and spicy peppers.

I threw a holiday part for my suities today, and it was the best. I made us a late lunch- all that food, then gave them all cute gifties. And then we cleaned up and listened to music and made jewelry together. And then we topped it off with an enormous roll of bubble wrap. It was perfect. We had a blast!

I have to be off and begin my last paper. Love you all!
