Chinese Food in France

We had been really craving *HOT* Chinese food - almost to the point of buying an air ticket somewhere!

Roomie to the rescue! My long-ago roommate saw my plea and sent me some amazing spices :-)

Tonight, I sorta-followed* a recipe for Kung Pau Chicken (see it here)

Aaaaand OH MY! It was soooooo good!

* Used leek instead of green onion, red wine instead of rice wine, added a carrot and 1/2 bell pepper, used Korean BBQ sauce instead of the sauce-from-scratch - 'cause that's what I had/could find...

Slow Boats

There was a regatta yesterday, but hardly a breath of wind! These poor folks were Slow Boating!

As soon as I get a good sized canvas, I'm painting this!

Sunset Sail

Sunset Sail on the Étang de Thau

I'm so happy to be painting again!
I guess having a cold isn't all bad!
