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.
However, I suppose you could also try calling it peatchup, especially if you’re trying to feed peas to your kids. Kids will try foods with funny names, right?
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.
One picture that recently caught my eye was one posted by Canadian chef and recording artist Roger Mooking, whom I first heard of from watching Chopped Canada.
