Tonight four of my students came over to our house. These young ladies were students in my science class for two years and since then we have become good friends. All of them are refugees from Burma. They are all Karen and they are the sweetest girls that I have taught in the longest time, maybe forever. Anyway, they wanted to cook some of their Keren/Burmese food for us. When they arrived they brought the ingredients to cook chicken legs, stir-fry bok choy and spring rolls. They made all of these right there in our kitchen. It was so much fun watching all of them cook. I just took pictures and pulled out all the pots and pans from our cabinet. When all was said and done, we ended up with a delicious meal. Afterwards, we played UNO, which we had taught them on our last visit. All in all, it was a great time – and we learned a little bit about Keren food as well as how to cook it. Thanks, Eh Say, Hser Ku, Eh Moo and Eh Bau! We love all of you!
