I was standing outside my sons school on Friday,
ready to greet him with our usual TGIF (Thank Goodness it's Friday)
when I suddenly noticed a flutter of activity around me. People had arrived
from all over to sell their wares and food. I was intrigued by this woman's
self-made kitchen and decided to do the right thing and support the local community.
Imagine delicate, waffle shaped, crispy wafers, in an intricate little heart shape
pattern followed by doughy sweetness in the shape of a fortune cookie.
All of this was created in the make shift grill below.
They were to hard to resist and were equally delicious.
I will be back for more, next time I will save a few for dessert...
I think they would look and taste lovely alongside a scoop
each of mango and passion fruit sorbet.
All of these thoughts...in a fleeting moment
on a Friday afternoon in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
(Thank Goodness for Friday's)
