Walnuts and Dates

15 Sep

Recently my other half came back from a business trip to Xinjiang.  His suitcase was full of food – he had brought back yogurt covered raisins, a large bag of doughnut peaches and two huge plastic bags full of dried dates and fresh walnuts. 

The yogurt covered raisins made me smile.  The Chinese on the bag very obviously said yogurt, dried grapes, but the English said “Health fashion recreation select.”  I’m not really sure how the two are coordinated but will accept on faith that in some sense they are connected.

The walnuts were so fresh that some could be shelled with your hands alone and the dates were longer than my thumb and made the entire kitchen smell sweet and spicy and homey.  We’ll be eating well for a while!
