Last week, my family had to go to a birthday party so we weren’t able to visit them. This week, we decided to cook for our family since they have been cooking for us since we have started visiting. I brought materials to make pasta. We almost didn’t have enough due to the fact that they had a guest. As I was cooking, they thought I was cooking a Chinese dish (I’m Chinese by the way) but I said “no, it’s an Italian dish.” I should have asked them if they had Italian dishes before. Perhaps next time I can bring a Chinese dish for them to try. My partner Avery brought brownies that she baked for them. It was made from Ghirardelli chocolate, yummmm. I love chocolate.
After we ate, we decided to go to the beach. Apparently they lived very close to the beach. Next to the beach was also a park. When we got there, some of Roshani’s friends and family were already there playing, even her mother was swinging on a swing! After spending some time in the park, we walked along the beach. There were so many objects along the shoreline. We found crawfish remains, varies types of rocks (some of which we kept), glass, etc. Luckily Chicago holds the annual beach clean up before the beach season begins. I can’t wait until the weather is appropriate for going to the beach!!
