had a lot of catching up to do. Conversation fodder included crispy pata,
sotanghon with spinach (surprisingly yummy), okra and garlic chives, fried
kesong puti balls, tokwa’t belly (no, not *that* Belly, this was bangus), tuyo
salad and lemon meringue pie, interspersed with breast pump instructions, baby
pictures and memories of Bali.
