February 8, 2012

The responsibiliti es of a wife never end.  When a woman begins her role as a wife, especially a Hmong wife, there are many certain things expected of her.  It is true that she, not only marries her husband, but also his whole family and clan.  However, her responsibiliti es don't end there.  When she becomes a mother, she will add on another one of the biggest commitments a woman will make, but it is something she does with an open heart. 

Despite having a full time job and running around after work to make sure everyone's day is fulfilled, she still has to come home to make dinner so that everyone is fed, and to clean after everyone.  At the end of each day, it is expected of a mother to still put on a smile and perk around with a happy soul.  It is the joy of being a loving mother and a wife.

Well, I'm saddened to say that tonight, I'm giving up being a mother and a wife.  I'm too tired after a long day's work to cook dinner.  :-[  I want to relax tonight and have someone else take on that responsibility .  I promise to not cast aside my responsibiliti es too long because I know I may just starve to death with someone else's cooking. :D

Anyway, yay, I'm glad it's Wednesday already!

I guess I could do that.  :) 

So, what is a good order-to-go dish?

Depends on what you your feeling that night.  I usually stick to things that will fit on a paper plate and not make a mess.  Steam dumplings, Wings, Sesame Chicken, sweet tea.. when I get Chinese take out; Pizza/Wings/Salad, for other kinds of foods.. No Hmong food but if we did have some.. Hmong sausage, sticky rice and papaya.   ;D

Hmong sausage, sticky rice and papaya sounds so good right about now.  O0

Thanks for the idea.  Maybe I'll order papaya to go and a bucket of KFC tomorrow.  Will make rice.  That's easy. :)  Yay!  Tomorrow's dinner is made!  ;D

Papaya salad will be super spicy.  I also have a whole freezer full of hot, red peppers.  Cannot live without it. :)

I bet you're a pepper person, too?

Yes.. I grow the hottest peppers in the world..  O0 The Bhut Jolokia and the Trinidad Scorpion BT.  If you haven't tried one yet, you have to.

OMG!  Wow, I'm not sure if I will want to try that.  I thought the hottest pepper is the ghost pepper, no?

I guess I'm not as brave as you are.

Ghost pepper = Bhut Jolokia.  The BT strain has beaten the Ghost pepper by 300,000 Scoville units.. so now its the hottest.  Ghost pepper = 1.1 million SC units.. and BT 1.4million SC units.. for comparison the Jalapeno is 8,000 SC units..

When are you coming up?  Yeah, I don't think they sell them anywhere.  Sometimes I find ghost peppers at Dragon Star and at the flea market.  Will you please post up a picture?

Wow!  How big are they?  They're wrinkling like the ghost peppers too, but longer.  Are you really brave enough to eat those?  How much of it can you do?
