Anna Prasomphol Fieser explains the agony of the decision: whether to have cream cheese wontons on the menu of her restaurant True Thai, easily the best Thai place in Minneapolis.
Reading an old newspaper I saw that a very bright young man just graduated from the University of Minnesota at the ripe old age of 13! Congratulations to Caleb Kumar for becoming the UM's youngest graduate ever.
Wow, and I thought I was precocious for having graduated from high school at the age of 15!
I don't know about Caleb, but I was the victim of a very harsh upbringing. Instead of getting to eat donuts and junk food like all my friends, my mother made me start the day by eating her special salmon dish. On our menu it is known as My Mother's Salmon because it's exactly the same recipe as what I ate each morning as a schoolgirl in Thailand.
Did it work? Well, none of my donut-eating friends graduated until they were 18 and by then I was off to America to study business at Kentucky Business College.
Gorgeous photo of "My Mothers Salmon" at the link. It makes my fried egg on steamed kale and spinach with olive oil, which I thought was so lovely, look like a bowl of corn flakes.
