One of the best things about visiting Grandma is her home cook meal. I was hoping to learn a new Lao dish this visit but we didn’t have enough time. There is always the next visit.
I’ve recently developed food allergy amongst other things, and dinner at her house was one of the best meals but I paid dearly afterward. Below is an elder relative portow Nee sharing meal with us.
Kang Keelek with ants’ eggs, I don’t think it gets any authentic than this.
I didn’t try Mok Padek and it looks real good.
This is the first time I’ve seen a small mango. It is slightly bigger than an egg and it’s very sweet. You don’t want to hear what Bo has to say about it.
These are eggs from her laying hens. I see a few Americana blue eggs amongst them.
Grandpa collected 26 eggs on Sunday.
Max came to visit Grandma also, and it was a bumpy one hour ride in back of a pickup truck but I’m sure it’s worth it for him to see the chickens again.
I can’t say that they fell the same way about him, Grandma was nervous seeing him pacing back and forth. I think he had killed 3 hens last year.
Her new chicks.
Grandma has a few roosters left, and this is the youngest one.
I didn’t do a good job panning, or in this case chickens run.
Her garden is coming along, she has plenty of lettuce and spring onions. The darker green color are broccoli that she planted in early Spring.
Her blueberry bushes bear many fruits this year.
This looks like a few Lao plants that I know.
And after seeing the thorns I knew it is Pak Kha. It’s great with egg omelet.
Her Persimmon trees bear many fruits this year. Sorry for the many photos and I hope you have enjoyed visiting Grandma with us.
