He pulled a frozen white ball from the plastic bag he was carrying, and dropped it on my lap. “There you go, do something with this” he said, and turned to leave.
“Papa,” I said “what’s that?”
I know, it’s a terrible pun. Worst of all, I’m probably not the first to use it.

Since I am (partly) French, is that OK for me to “celebrate” Cinco de Mayo? Or at least make a post about it? Because I had been feeling like making a Mexican lunch for a while, and with Cinco de Mayo just around the corner … well, I figured it would be a great moment to do that.

Sometimes, I throw myself cooking challenges. Sometimes it works, other times not so much.
My last, half self-thrown challenge was to make wontons. Because buying frozen ones is too easy – why make things simple? I’m exaggerating. In reality, the filling is quite easy to do. It’s the “sealing” part I had a difficult time with.
Not that it should keep you from having dessert any other day of the week.
