Hello, or rather...Sawtii Khap...from Thailand

Since rice is king here and especially sticky rice, which is their bread mainstay....I could only get the commercial polyester type breads here, so I got an oven and am now making my own!  Talk about fresh banana bread....I am going to experiment with papayas next.  If squash (pumpkins) can be used, then why not, eh?  Incidently, the Thai word for squash is Fook...rhymes with book....hmmmm.  So far, I can get most of what I need here for a great assortment of various bread recipes.  Happy eating, Pood Entaine
