@kandi3570 Yes! and I don't bake cookies. Or do dinners. I only just finished 'shopping' yesterday. For a lot of friends/family we make personalized calendars. This year I photoshopped our bears (teddy, not real, live bears, I promise) attacking Wisconsin Lighthouses. It was fun...but a lot of work. Usually I'm done by the end of October.
So, the (hopefully short) story of my obsession with very exotic (to many) cuisine starts in Minneapolis in 1994. One of my cousins lived there and introdued several family who visited (not me) to a restaurant called The Blue Nile. About a year or so later, she was killed in a car accident. I had been dating a guy who was not a nice person. Her brother decided in her honor to encourage me to exit my relationship, which was rapidly getting worse. As part of this crusade, he decided to introduce me to other cultures...and invited me to The Blue Nile in Kansas City, MO. Also, introduced me to good Greek/Mediterranian food. Said guy and I did split up (yay!) and over the next 9 months or so, I started trying new stuff on my own, like dating a guy from India (who recommended my favorite Indian restaurant) and a guy from Ethiopia (met at the Nile) and trying Thai food. By the time I met my (now) husband, I was actively pursuing cooking these dishes because I was a college student and couldn't afford to go to the wonderful restaurants all the timr (or to drive to the city all the time). And I created dating rules in there...any man who couldn't take the amazing food I love couldn't be happy with me. Since then I've added Vietnamese and Korean Then I met the Lee, and he passed all the tests and does a dance when I make Ethiopian and Indian and Thai. He isn't a fan of Korean...but I guess I can forgive that.
