What happened last week? The three-year-old (reluctantly) went back to preschool. The five is doing work at home for now and will start school August 31. He’s going in for a day camp, something to do with science and STEM stuff next week. I went for a twice-yearly checkup at the dentist and all’s good. The husband was away all week (yep, pretty much flew in from Singapore and flew out again!) in New Orleans for a work thing. And will be flying off to Denver later today!
On Sunday I made a raspblueberry pie that unfortunately wasn’t sweet enough despite that cup of sugar mixed with the fruits. Luckily ice cream came to the rescue. Otherwise the butter pie crust from Smitten Kitchen (which I had previously used in an apricot pie) continues to do well for me.
I decided to give Stranger Things a try after watching the trailers.
Spicy eggplant with ground pork, although I will have to figure something out for the kids. Maybe wontons for them with the ground pork.
Hollywood keeps hiring white men to do an Asian’s job – on that horrendous show about The Great Wall (called of course, The Great Wall) in which Matt Damon is that white man who saves the Chinese people. Because of course, Chinese people need saving by a white man. Why Zhang Yimou? Why???
