What's cooking?

The menu is not the meal

In Burma, where  this is the season for electricity-well brown outs occur at 4 hour intervals, the family's menu consists of two choices:  take it or leave it. They curry things up because of their borders with India and spice things up because of their  trade with China, but Hunger is the best sauce in these parts, and ppl will eat just about anything with wings except airplanes and anything with legs except tables. 

In Burmese, they we have a word for sushi:  bait. They like to heat things up- not only with spices but fire They cook with charcoal, but  here  I am "cooking with gas".

 The food was fresh veggies, and prawns. . In the United States of Unconscious eating, we are all dietetic sinners; only a small percent of what we eat nourishes us; the balance goes to waste and loss of energy.
Graduation Day
First there were the options, the three month monk, the three year monk, I took the three minute monk. Once again, another crash course, this time a day trip to a local resturant for some authentic Burmese cuisine. I am now a bonofide chef. Next, I will be getting my surgical degree at the hospital tour tomorrow as well, followed up by a Ph.D. in Physics, hosted by Mynmar's university facilty.
