~ Surfing El Salvador ~

I'm behind in posting this - I apologize to my son who asks me on a near daily basis "Have you finished my surfing video yet?"   We had a great opportunity while in El Salvador to give Amos surfing lessons for his birthday.  BEST BIRTHDAY GIFT EVER!!!  He had so much fun during those 2 hours!  Cheers to his surf instructor, Emilio!  I wish we could have stayed longer and let him practice more - but ya gotta come home sometime!  I have no doubt that this will not be the last time my boy will surf!

~ Indian Food ~

My newest obsession...learning to cook Indian food! I made a mean Saag Paneer last week from some of our garden's last spinach and boy was it YUMMY! 

My good friend, Heidi, volunteered to cook an Indian dinner for a class auction project and I volunteered (selflessly of course...) to help her.  Last Wednesday we shopped at a local Indian market and now I have another place to haunt!   It was great visiting the store for the 1st time with her because she explained so much to me and another friend.  The next day, she showed me how to make cilantro chutney. Mmmmm, mmmmmm tasty!! Now, I'm trying to convince her to teach some Indian cooking classes.
