I had a wonderful weekend. I spent it mostly at home, but with a very good friend of mine, E, who is more like a sister to me. The entire weekend consisted of food and family. On Saturday, E and I made Vietnamese spring rolls and baked salmon, and on Sunday, we made Filipino eggrolls (“lumpia”).
I think it’s absolutely amazing that food can bring people together.
