It’s Been Awhile

Christmas has come and gone already and the “longest night of the year” has also passed.  Our family had a wonderful Christmas Day together.  We met at Flora and Han’s home, and they prepared a feast beyond compare.

Flora cooks with Han’s assistance. What a team.

We always marvel at their cooking, Flora at the helm, and Hans her right-hand man in the kitchen.  We all agreed we could not find more delectable Chinese food anywhere from Bend, to Portland, or maybe even down to San Francisco.  Her cooking not only reflects the joy she has for her country of origin and their cuisine but also her new life in the U.S.  Her love for Hans and their new home is obviously in the mix.

Authentic Chinese food from one end of the table to the other. What a blessing.
Clockwise: Terry, Ellie (16), Jade (14), Su (almost 81), Jack and Patty, Flora, Renee, Friends from Portland, Ashley and Spencer.
Jade and Ellie stuffed from the dinner – and gratefully no desert.

Happy New Year Everyone.

January 17th, Still Snowing in Bend. Keep up the good work Mother Nature, a truly amazing artist.
