Last night I had dinner at Aunt Kathy’s house, my aunt, uncle, and cousin agreed to photos! My cousin, Matt, just finished college, he’s an amateur chef, so I took most of the photos of him cooking. A few of my aunt taking photos of her GF almond cake, and some of the food. No selfies or group photos since we kept 6 feet apart, but I can’t wait to print out the one photo of my cousin cooking and my aunt baking for the Happiness Box 2020.
At dinner, we talked about travelling. Last night I thought I was headed to Spring Lake, but it looks like I’ll be heading to Keansburg. $40/night, beach across the street, clean house, sounds good to me! I decided to go away for a little bit, but I will take a day trip to Atlantic City at the end of summer. I just love North Jersey. They talked about going to NYC again, checking out their beaches because they thought how I described the NY beaches sounded pretty. Next year, as Uncle Dave’s brother had surgery. It was fun talking about travel.
Oh, Matt remembered that I was halal and he asked me if I had other religious restrictions other than pork. I told him that I now eat kosher, but it’s the same as halal. However, I can’t have dairy so I don’t mix the meat and dairy anyway. Matt has Jewish friends, so we talked about that and when I cooked one night for Passover. Matt thought it sounded good.
Last night was so much fun and I’m very grateful for my family. ❤
