This is the stuff. It’s, oh my goodness, beautiful. Perfect.

If you ever, and I mean ever, want to show me some kindness, send me some of this.

It’s not available here, and I mourn it.

Luckily, my sister, both times she was on her way to the Maldives, brought me a couple of jars.

Unfortunately, if I were using this stuff like it was available, one jar would last a few weeks at most. Rationing, people! Rationing!

Sigh.

Howdy and welcome to my site! I'm Laurie and I'll be your, er, hostess today. :)

I'm a Canadian expat currently living in Singapore. I'm married to a Sri Lankan and lived in Sri Lanka for nearly a decade. We also lived in New Zealand for half a year.

I cook Sri Lankan curries, sambols, and mallungs. I bake bread using wild yeast (sourdough that isn't sour). I bake on the stove. I experiment with Indian / Malaysian / Indonesian / Thai / whatever cuisines interest me. And I experiment wildly.

Life is an adventure. Join me! :)
