Day 330

WE HAD A GREAT THANKSGIVING MEAL YESTERDAY, prepared by the men.

We had goose, chicken, mashed potatoes, bread, french onion soup, pumpkin pie, apple pie, orange/coffee custard, potato stuffing, chicken gravy, momos, veggies, and okra.  Sorry guys, if I missed an item.

Here is a photo of the potato momos I made.  I took momo cooking lessons at a cafe in Darjeeling with Austin.  Here is a link that a lady put online, who had also taken the lessons there:  http://www.ordinaryvegetarian.com/2010/05/tibetan-momos-in-darjeeling.html

Day 329

HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY to all my American friends.  I know my Canadian friends have long ago digested their Thanksgiving meals!  I know these aren’t turkeys, but turkeys are expensive in Bangladesh.  I think they might cost $70!  I haven’t checked lately, and my memory isn’t what it used to be.  Hopefully I’m not exaggerating!  These are some ducks at Halim’s place.  Today us fellows on the team are cooking the meal for the ladies.  The menu is a secret, so I won’t disclose it until later! Have a great day!

Day 328

THIS YOUNG BENGALI LAD loved to show me how he could make this top spin.

Day 327

WELL IT’S FOR SURE!  ALICE AND I are spending Christmas in Bali.

HERE IS ALICE having a nice curried beef, rice, spicy potato, dal, and rice meal at Halim’s place.   Halim’s mother is on the right.  Her curries are some of the best we have tasted in Bangladesh.
