Happy Birthday Mary!

Thanks for turning 30! Also, thanks for being such a wonderful wife!

Just like the rest of our time together, we had a good time at MOSI.

Malaysian Sweet and Sour Eggs

We've made 15 recipes so far for our World Peas project! They've all been DELICIOUS-- this has been such a great experience. :)

Two weeks ago Elliot made Malaysian Sweet and Sour Eggs. This recipe was our first time using tamarind as an ingredient. We sipped the nectar before we added it to the recipe. Yuck--it tasted so gross! After trying the nectar, we were skeptical that we'd like this dish. But once all of the flavors are cooked together, it's wonderful. I'm starting to think of cooking as some kind of magic.

Providence Canyon State Park

This past Saturday Elliot, Ben, Sheila and I took a day trip to Providence Canyon State Park in Georgia, which is billed as Georgia's "Little Grand Canyon." Its very pretty there, even though the gullies that constitute the "canyon" were created by soil erosion brought on by bad farming practices in the 1800s.

We spent about 5 hours walking around the park. First, we took a loop around the top of the canyon, and then we went down into the canyon and explored.

Here are three pictures taken from the top of the canyon:

And here are some pictures taken when we were down in the canyon:

Vegetarian Hungarian Goulash

Last week I made Vegetarian Hungarian Goulash, which was our first time ever cooking with caraway seeds. It was very tasty, and as a pasta lover, I would definitely make it again.

I used to work with a lady from Hungary... I wonder if she ever ate anything like Vegetarian Hungarian Goulash before she moved to the United States. :)
