Ten on Tuesday: 10 things I did last weekend

1) Had a terrific lunch at Great Wall in Florence, MA. They look like a hole-in-the-wall Chinese restaurant, but the gourmet menu is just marvelous and tastes like home cooking.

2) Got bubble tea at Lime Red Tea House. My favorite is the grapefruit with green tea and "boba".

3) Cooked Malaysian Radish Cake with bean sprouts.

4) Also cooked Stir-fried Pork with Basil and a Fried Egg. 

5) Nearly set myself on fire trying to light our new grill (a Traeger wood pellet, in case you're wondering. Poorly designed. Don't get one.)

6) Scared all the neighbors with my yelling when I nearly caught on fire. That was awkward.

7) Discovered a new blog I love: My Name is Yeh

8) Had a bunch of students over for dinner.

9) Went to Commencement and said goodbye to my seniors.

10) WON THE TEACHING AWARD!!! (I'm still in shock, and so happy.)


  1. First off - congratulations!!!
    Second - what is bubble tea? Why is it called that?
    Third - I'm really glad you did not catch on fire! Scary!!

    1. "Bubble Tea" is a delicious Taiwanese invention. It's also called "Boba Tea". It is made with tea, or juice, or a smoothie, with giant tapioca balls, or "boba", added to it, which you slurp through a specially made wide straw. It's refreshing and delicious.
