Stir-fry recipe; End of holidays

Tonight I modified a recipe from Helen Chen’s Chinese Home Cooking to suit my likes and dislikes and turned out quite a nice stir-fry for my papa and me. Yum.

Holidays ended today, and tomorrow Jonathan goes back to school, Dale back to work, and Kayleigh back to CAPS (albeit sans Magda). I am trying to get my dad to come to the gym with me tomorrow while the maids are here, but he is being stubborn.

I ended the holidays in rare fashion last night after spending the evening and a large part of the morning at my friend A’s place, along with our friend H. The purpose was to show our art challenge pieces to each other (the topic was “beginnings”), and we did that as well as solving the problems of the world. We met at A’s at 9 p.m. (after our kids’ bedtimes) and H. and I did not leave until 4 a.m. Even then we could have stayed longer but knew we had to go. I think we started saying around 1:30 a.m. that we needed to go home, but we couldn’t tear ourselves away and end the conversation. It was loads of fun.
