A couple months ago, my dear pal Rachel and her daughter Shoshi came to visit. We did what we do: had fun spending time together and eating copious amounts of Asian food. There were also trips to some local splash pads, lots of ice cream (including affogatos for breakfast with condensed milk ice cream à la Dan accompanied by Chinese yóutiáo), tacos, and a kid-free dinner out. It was delightful to not only get to spend time together as friends, but also to see our kids have fun together. And, not to toot our horn too much, but the noodles we made were divine. This is usually the case when we cook together. Good vibes = good food.
Thanks for making the trip, Bai!
