Wai-Puo Visits

My mom decided to come see us for a week for the sole purpose of cooking for us.  She came armed with two suitcases (one large, one small) full of Chinese snacks (Hello Pandas, Pocky, dried squid, fish snacks, crackers, Chinese jellies, etc.), noodles, as well as things I am unsure of in English (think dried mushrooms, dried scallops, dried fish, dates, soy beans, dried fruit, etc.)  So far, we've had noodles, red bean soup, brussel sprouts with lamb, mochi, soup, and we are set to have curry for lunch today.  Yummy!

 i really have no idea what any of this is
 pocky and squid
biscuits and jellies

We also went shopping and got Jordan new winter threads from H&M, TJ Maxx, and we all enjoyed a nice dinner at Twigs Bistro courtesy of wai-puo.  And then all our plans were ruined once snow fell.  I am apprehensive to drive in the snow and as I look out the window into the forest of white that is now my balcony view, the bits of snow falling that I only saw a mimic of at the Grove during Christmastime doesn't make it any better.

hahah your mom is the best. I want to try all your Asian snacks. You need to get rid of that van and get an SUV before you move to Utah :)

FUN! What a great mommy! Snow is fuuuuuuuun! (With the right clothes of course. that was my mistake when I first moved to byu. i hated it there cause it was 'so cold', until i learned not to wear california winter clothes anymore. you'll survive! i want to visit you!!!!)
