Many thanks to class mom Mison who is one of the most generous people I know. Today she had 5 of us over for lunch. She had a spread for us to make our own spring rolls. Rice wrappers, several pounds of warm shrimp, lettuce, cilantro & basil, pickled mustard diakon like thing?, asian long green beans, something in the garlic family, bean sprouts, and very hot dipping sauce and some hot dipping sauce cooled with peanut butter and sugar. So nice! And to top it all off she sent me home with 2 mason jars of canned tomatoes - that she had harvested herself at the farm near Sacramento. One playdate Q had at her house ended with us being sent home with sushi, soup and salad. Crazy woman but such a great cook! Wish I could do things like that. Instead I had a nice meal for Halloween but managed to forget to cook the rice - and we had stew. Oh well! We made due with some left over rice, Trader's precooked rice etc. Not the same but it worked out.
