    I loved this book, but I needed to keep putting it down to research Chinese history. I think I spent more time reading Wikipedia than I did reading the book.

      It seems that the extra effort was worth it then, if it increased your enjoyment of the book. At the very least, it’s made me more interested in reading translations to see if I can expand my horizons.

  • Pierogis for dinner! I fried some bacon, boiled some pierogis, and saved the bacon fat to finish them with. Also added some smoked paprika and bbq seasoning to the pan. #yummy
  • Last night we went to the bulk food store to get spices for the (then-empty) spice cabinet. I am ridiculously satisfied to see it all full and labelled. #home #cooking
  • First breakfast at the condo, plus first cup of tea. Sitting on the balcony, and there's a nice breeze.
  • I'm moving out into my own condo. Today I am packing up my teaware. Many thanks to @yunnan_sourcing for always packing their orders in toooooonnnnnnns of bubble wrap! #tea #teaware #isthisenoughbubblewrap
  • Godiva hot chocolate and strawberry marshmallows. A good way to end this cold, snowy night.
  • I baked a LOT of banana bread today, you guys. #merrychristmas
  • Klingon Bloodwine at the new @stormcrowmanor in Toronto. I drank and made my ancestors proud!
  • Freshly roasted red peppers with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and salt. They're still warm from the grill.

If you aren't jealous, you probably don't have tastebuds. #yummy #goodbyesummer
