Naturally, with Nick gone and Emmy at my parents, I headed over to their house tonight to do some laundry and further mooch off of their food stores. My mom was making jook, which is always a favorite with me. My mom and mother-in-law make jook far better than I can. It never turns out the same when I try to make it. It’s either too runny or too thick. It’s never just perfect. I think it’s the mother’s touch.
