On goals and progress

One of my goals this year was to try something new each month.

This month that opportunity arrived by way of a parcel from my mother. Amongst other things – she sent us a package of Annie Chun’s Roasted Seaweed Snacks. Wasabi flavor. On the package it says “Savory roasted Korean seaweed with wasabi.” There is also a heat index which races all the way to the “Hot” scale. So I should not have been surprised that when my youngest son and I put a serving into our mouths – our eyes began leaking streams of water.

In the words of my husband . . . “HOT.”

But. They are VERY good! I found out later that my mother puts the seaweed sheet “chips” onto sandwiches. Which is an excellent idea. That would temper the heat – and make them less awkward to eat, too. But they were delicious.

Now I just have to find out where I can buy them.
