When Edie gets out of school at 11am we usually pick up a zhutongfan, steamed rice in a bamboo tube, from this Dai nationality woman on the street outside. The sticky rice (and the odd peanut) is steamed over a charcoal grill - very delicious, and healthy!

Editor's note: Another sign that we've been here too long - losing our grasp on the English language e.g. "very delicious". Surely "really" is the preferred word, or just let "delicious" quantify itself. Any comments?

Yep, "delicious" is an example of an "extreme adjective" and therefore shouldn't add a "very". Mind you, it's only since returning to the UK that I've been able to convince myself that "very delicious" is wrong!
