Had a little family gathering at my house with my relatives from Sweden during the afternoon last Saturday and I wanted to prepare a light snack as we have dinner reservations later. After going through my fridge I found some of the leftover frozen vegetables for our usual quick Fried Rice lunches. I ran quickly down to the sundry shop and bought some potatoes which is a crucial ingredient to make my Spicy Vege Cutlet.

We had a blast chatting about their businesses in Sweden and exchanging their family stories with us. I rarely meet my 5 cousins who are mostly half my age and am shocked when they called me uncle when they arrived. I just thank god we are all in good health and got the opportunity to get to know each other better.
