Random Food Post...

So this is a random post (and probably not the most exciting :) but I wanted to introduce you to one of my favorite fruits! I never saw these in America, but maybe they have them in South Florida or South Texas or something... Anyway, here it's called Chikoo or Chiku... I think the name it might go by in America is "Sapodilla"... Anyway it's REALLY good! Totally my kind of fruit! It tastes like brown sugar! YUM!! They have these big black seeds in them too - pretty cool :) On another food note... I made Applesauce for the first time this week... I didn't realize how easy it was to make and MAN! it's good! (Even if I do say so my self :))... I can't believe how many things I've learned to make from scratch since living here :) I crack up when I look at websites and they have recipies you can make "from scratch" and the ingredients include things like a can of frozen biscuits, a can of beans, etc - haha!

I've never had the chickoo (however you spell it) but I've seen the chickoo gelato. Brown sugar fruit definitely sounds right up my alley though!
And way to go on the applesauce! I need to get your recipe.

I am so impressed! I'll give you a little homemade baby food tip I heard once- puree some veggies or fruits and put them in ice cube trays-freeze them, then when you need them, you simply pop it out, thaw for a little bit and you have a perfect serving size- Never tried it, but I've heard it's a super easy way to keep organized! Maybe it will help you!

Florida Gators!

OK, so don't get me wrong by the title... I'm a super proud Florida State Grad and a big FSU fan... but this week here in Thailand, Tim Tebow is hanging out with us :) For those that don't know, he's the quarterback for University of Florida - he's a believer and a really awesome bold guy. So, since he's a Heisman winner (AND the only underclassman to ever win the Heisman) we thought we should get Aashini in a Heisman pose with him :) haha!

Campa Cola & Exploring :)

Today we had some things to do in the Central part of our city, so while we were there, we decided to take on some adventures :) Adventure #1 - the underground market. This market is pretty crazy. It's actually underground and has electronics & clothes mostly. They sell things pretty cheap, so it's an interesting place to go. Today we got an 64 Gig flash drive/pen drive for about $5. Crazy hunh? Here's Adam and Aashini in one of the stores. They're all REALLY small stores - about 10x10 feet I would guess (but I'm really bad at guessing that sort of stuff :)) We go here a lot to get things, so I guess it's not a new adventure, but an adventure nonetheless.
Before the next part of our adventure (the real part of our adventure) we stopped for lunch. Aashini will always eat at McDonalds, so that's where we went :) They just started selling chicken nuggets here at McDonalds, so it's super easy to get her to eat there :) This McDonald's had high chair…

The Hijras are Coming!!!!

Today we had a fun / interesting cultural experience :) Here in our country, there are these people called Hijras हिजड़ा .... or Eunuchs. Most of these people are true eunuchs - they were born without male or female parts. They all live together in their own ghetto. If you have a child that is a Hijra, then they will come and demand you for your child and people here will give them their child. They all live together and in order to get money, they mostly do a glorified sort of begging. They are always dressed to the hilt. They come and visit you when you've had something big happen in your life - usually weddings and.... NEW BABIES. They come and dance and make a HUGE ruckus. They ususally do this until they are given a large amount of money. Some of them can be quite crazy and violent, but mostly they will just annoy you to death, barge into your home (or wedding) and dance and sing around until you give them money (usually around $100-200 is their demand). Everyon…
