Back to My Roots

On this trip to Colorado, I taught two of my nieces how to make won ton soup the way my Mom and Grandmother used to make it. Trouble was, I could not find any Daikon in Colorado Springs! Really! 

So on a trip to my Disney collectible dealer in Lakewood, CO, (The Gift House) Febra and her family told us of a huge Asian super market and Chinese restaurant nearby called Super Star Asian Cuisine and Pacific Ocean International Marketplace. They weren't kidding! I found all sorts of food on which I was raised. And look how huge the Daikon is! It's a root vegetable that is wonderful in soup and loaded with vitamins. Too bad I found this place on the last day of my visit, but we'll be back.

And for those of you who never have had Coco Rico, you must find it. It's like carbonated coconut water.  Brought me back to my youth!

Morning Wood

 Check out this AmericInn in Pequot Lakes, MN. Looks like Paul Bunyan decorated the place. I woke up and saw wood everywhere.
