I've always loved dinners. As a child I looked forward to that time of night when we all sat and ate together, as a family we didn't have many conversations but night time meals always felt comfortable. Everyone coming back from their part of life and eating in comfort to end the day together. As I grew up these gatherings reduced and dinners together eventually became a luxury.
But this tradition managed to find a way back into my life. There are lovely humans existing with me who indulge me in the things I love, become a part of it and make it collectively ours. In the past few years we have had numerous nights of cooking, eating and cleaning together. There is a rhythm created when you work with such proximity that only gets you closer. And over time we have invented rituals of our own.
We recently had an impromptu dinner making a version of the Burmese Khao Suey. It is a coconuty soupy noodle dish served with a variety of condiments in the streets of Burma.
We made a green coconut curry with lotus roots, wheat noodles and condiments like spring onions, peanuts, fried garlic, fried onions and chopped corriander.
Good food, great ambience, wonderful company, happy us :) On tough days I look back at nights like these and I know that I will be just fine.
