A Cousin Tea Party

A few weekends ago we had very special visitors in our house. My sister's family stopped through on their way from California to Florida. While the little sisters were sleeping, Bethany and I had a tea party for Ellanora and Ruby Kay. The enjoyed orange juice in their tea cups, and practiced eating daintily with their cookies and fruit. These girls quite enjoy having tea parties and their Mama's enjoy spoiling them!

Making Sticky Rice

A few weeks ago my little helper learned how to make stick rice with me. Ruby Kay loves to help me in the kitchen, and is always ready to stir, pour, and whatever else I need help with. Even though she is young, I can see parts of her personality shining through. She is gentle and kind, and I cannot wait to see the woman she will become one day.

On a side note, Stick Rice is really easy to make. You soak the rice for hours before you add them to a steamer basket. It pairs well with Rotisserie chicken and Som Tam, which is one of my most missed dishes from Thailand.
