tonight i made a tibetan soup called thenthuk. a friend from the bay area has a great recipe posted here. the first time i made it the homemade noodles were too thick. the second time the broth wasn't anything to write home about. but tonight it was nearly perfect. we made a chicken in our little rotisserie last night and after dinner i boiled the carcass for a few hours to make a broth. gosh, carcass sounds so awful. but the homemade broth, combined with the left over bits of chicken, some veggies and the nearly perfected noodle strategy made for a delicious soup. i'm not sure if a tibetan would agree, but dan and tashi approved.
we unfortunately had no awesome tibetan hot sauce so instead threw in some kimchee. that actually worked just fine!
it's a busy week. this saturday is the school's christmas bazaar and i somehow fell into the role of organizing our 4th grade candle dipping activity. lots of emails and gathering of supplies and last minute realizations. i look at some of these parents with kids in four different classrooms and i wonder how they do it. dan is going to play music in the cafe and tashi and her friend are going to perform king wenceslas on violin and cello. they rehearsed at our house yesterday. so cute.
speaking of tashi, i've enabled comments on her blog, moderated by me of course. please stop by and say hi to her. if she treats her comments like she does the mailbox, she'll be indignant daily about the lack of correspondence.
and tonight we're going to watch the grinch. i can't wait to see those cute little whos.
