Wow, you guys are great. Even when I have a totally boring post you reward me with comments.
I didn't go to picnic day. I couldn't face going back to Davis! But speaking of Davis, I just wrote a letter to Ken Widmann at the News and Review telling him I really like his weekly column about Davis. That guy is a good writer. Even when he writes a Seinfeld-esque nothing column (like about there not be any pay phones) it's still worth a read. And without forced snark!
My new culinary craze (well, one of them, one will be revealed in my June column) is making Vietnamese spring rolls. Am I correct in calling them Goi Cuon? Is Cuon the rice wrap part? I'm trying to pick up more Vietnamese culinary terms to decode things easier. Not the fried kind, the salad-y fresh kind. You've probably all made them before, but I never had until recently and it's so fun and delicious. I put in lots of fresh mint and cilantro, and rather than making a peanut sauce, I made up some Nuoc Cham. I made a batch and used it twice over a couple of days, and it just got hotter over time. Here's a recipe. I've been using my mortar and pestle a bit more often recently, and that's fun, too.
