    There was a bakery down the street by the convenience store and instead of buying gum and candy I used to buy cream horns and hide them in my closet so I wouldn't have to share. Between rice crispy treats, hot buttered O's, and these it's amazing I didn't have a weight problem until I was an adult! I was so sad when the bakery closed.

    My sister and I were always tasked to dehusk swampland asparagus. We would munch on these babies as we worked through the bundles prior to either or both of our parents cooking it. We preferred ours raw, much to our parents dismay. ROFL.

    Missing Dipawali celebrations in the islands this weekend. Invitations are flowing in from our friends and family friends to have our mum attend in our stead or for our family. It used to be easy to send Diwali treats abroad like they'd done before ... Not anymore and Dipawali in the US SUCKS!! 😥

    Nothing beats large claypot fireworks tended to by the fathers and big brothers (we all perceived ourselves as siblings as our parents friendships were moreso one of kinship than mere friendship). Fireworks wars or the official kite flying battles the day before between homes hoping to kadem neighbours' kites to crown the neighbourhood best flyer. Ahhhhhh! ... Watching all the homes lit up like Christmas and how each family preserves and observes their customs.

    * Vegan curries
    * Assorted Indian flatbread both fried or on the tawa griddles.
    * MILK BARFI my absolute favourite.
    * Gulab jamun, Pacific Indian diaspora style ... Little bullets of delicious sugary milky goodness.
    * Mangoes
    * Mango lassi

    My 10 year old memories in NZ and chunky chocolate chip cookies revolved around these cookies which were almost as large as a 10 year olds head. They were cookies often sold as fundraiser cookies often hawked by some school team or choir or orchestra thinking to raise funds for something. I would buy out boxes of these and resell them in the boarding house with hot cocoa (extra charge) on Saturday nights. ROFL ... No matter the private school environment, my grandparents government projects neighborhood hustle was still cocooning inside me. Their cravings, my $$$.
