A Rare Moment

I snapped this picture of the kids as fast as I could. Both kids getting along at the same time...and having fun with each other! So nice to see!!
So happy together (is the song in your head now?)
Butter chicken (completely redone)

gnocchi with gorgonzola cheese sauce (simply delicious!)

Several posts back, I made the butter chicken recipe and it was terrible. I remade the dish following several helpful comments and it was very good. I also made this killer gnocchi from Trader Joes. It was excellent. Everybody loved it. The last time I made gnocchi, it was dry & in a box. This gnocchi was frozen. The oval discs in the picture is butter & gorgonzola cheese. The discs melt and leave a scrumptious sauce behind. The next time I visit TJs, I will purchase several bags and store them in my freezer.
While cooking dinner, I watched a show on the Travel Channel called Weird Food or something like that. I was happy to say, I had tried most of the items the host was eating. One was jellyfish (all 4 of us ate that in a Vancouver BC Chinatown restaurant) and the other was abalone. Both were tasty. Omid has had more strange food experiences. Fish & seafood pizza in Japan, fried crickets in China., etc. On one of his visits to Korea, he was taken to a restaurant that specialized in "dog" dishes. He said he was sick to his stomach when he was told what was on the menu. His hosts told him again & again that the dogs are "farmed" and not pets. All he could think about was Remy & the other family dogs. I think he told me he ate something vegetarian instead. Good man!

I'm buying some of that good stuff next time I go to TJs. And . . . I can't stomach the idea of eating dog. That makes me want to ralph!
