    I love eating the turkey heart on Thanksgiving. I simmer the giblets with onion to use the broth later. I always offer it to everyone within earshot, but no one takes me up on it.

    I made the kale "chips" this weekend. Every person in my family loved them. (even the kids)

    Since today is a snow day I'm going to make MRD's mac and cheese which is how I remember my mother doing it. and anyone in this family who has the gall to mention preferring kraft mac can get out there and shovel the driveway!

It's pretty simple: fresh kale, a little olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake for a short time till crisp. Sometimes we make a plain yogurt-based dipping sauce. Great for football-day munchies, and way healthier (and tastier!) than greasy old potato chips.
    did yuo find out the measurements? this sounds yummy - and is it jsut plain yogurt you dip it in?

    He uses a recipe he found in Food and Wine magazine. Here's a link to the online version:

    If you make it, let me know what you think!

    Ok, so you all only have two days left to stock up on supplies for the only day of the year that Singapore closes its stores. Yep, the biggest event here in Singapore and the rest of Asia is the celebration of the Lunar New Year (Chinese New Year)
    So you need a rabbit of some description I have a little soft toy one, it is the year of the rabbit and that means prosperity
    Red and Gold: Decorate in lots of red and gold Red scares away evil spirits and is for joy truth and sencerity
    Gold is for wealth. I have a red lantern for the balcony
    Fruit: you need lots of mandarins and pineapple for luck and fortune. I have a giant pineapple lantern haning in my lounge
    Fish: for prosperity again (just hoping a box of fish fingers in my freezer counts)
    Fireworks: for the first time since i was 8 years old i was able to actually purchase fireworks at the market. Have no idea if I will be able to light them anywhere on the condo grounds but it was just the wanting to be a kid again that made me buy them
    New Clothes: preferably with red in them, you must wear new clothes on Thursday the 3rd as new clothes represents new beginnings. I have a new red top I brought a few weeks agao that I have not worn yet
    Flowers: a cumquat tree for prosperity, a plum blossom for luck (plastic is ok), sunflowers mean you are going to have a good year, chrysanthemum for longevity, eggplant for healing sickness and good health and bamboo just for good luck. I have a bamboo with a red ribbon tied around it
    But most important of all is food
    The biggest event is the reunion dinner on New Years Eve all the members of the family even distant ones come together for one big meal of 8 or 9 courses (lucky numbers), that reminds me you must avoid the number four it is very bad luck so just make sure you have more than 4 people
    So I have invited some other expats like myself to our special reunion dinner where I am cooking not quite traditional chinese. Duck with pineapple rice, chicken and asparagus in lemon sauce, hot and sour soup, chili prawn salad, damper. a selection of lollies (a tray of 8 different ones) and custard tarts for dessert.
    Wish me luck as I have to do all this with the worlds smallest oven and just a two burner stove
    Theres always the KFC lucky fortune chicken delivery if I stuff up
