CGG Cubes

1 cup of chili
¾ cup of garlic
¾ cup of ginger

Prep them for blending (wash the chili, remove the skin from the garlic and ginger). Blend into a paste (as smooth as possible). You will have more than you need any given recipe. I usually freeze mine in ice cube trays so I can have it ready for the next time I need it. It’s the best trick ever. I swear I am a more efficient cook because of it.

17th Meet - IndoChinese

Jalpa hosted this exchange at her house.  We had decided to do an Indo-Chinese exchange a while ago but had to keep postponing it for different reasons. Jalpa welcomed us with her own concoction of a non-alcoholic beverage. Something she, a new preggo, and the rest of the girls can enjoy. We swapped kid stories and their antics, some tips and tricks to use around the house, and pretty much lot of laughs. We decided next time all of us have to come to the exchange with a household cleaning tip. Something that you think the other girls may like to know.  I am looking forward to seeing what everyone comes back with. We have also decided  this blog is a good platform for sharing information – so moving forward we are going to share tips, tricks, stories, and of course our beloved food recipes.
