HEB poteet strawberry ice cream

If you live anywhere in Texas near a HEB, I highly suggest you run down to your nearest store and pick up this ice cream, made from the famous strawberries grown in Poteet, TX.  BK and I have been fighting over this all week.

Good day!

After a whole week at the vet's and emergency care, Link finally got to come home for the night!  We are so happy that he seems to be on the mend--thanks to the excellent care he's received from his doctors and nurses.  There are more tests and hurdles and day trips to the vet to get through but it sure was good to have him home last night.

Garden roses

This is our second year of garden roses and I love having fresh flowers in the house!  My favorites so far are St Cecilia and Queen of Sweden.

Favorite Friday Recipe: Curry Puffs

So in Singapore we have these delicious pastries called "curry puffs"--which is really quite self-explanatory--they are little puffs of pastry filled with curry.  Well imagine my surprise when I  learned from my good friend A that they are actually called samosas!  Granted, the Singaporean versions are still a little different in terms of the dough and especially the surprise slice of hard boiled egg in them (my favorite!).  I had some leftover curry this week and decided to mash up the potatoes, boil some eggs and bake them all in puff pastry (easy way out).  They were sooooo delicious and reminded me of great memories of buying these from Old Chang Kee and eating them as an after school snack with my dad.
