Mah Jongg is not just a game. It has become a part of my life that allows me to entertain my Mah Jongg-playing friends, cook great meals to serve to them and test my mental skills during our game play (which, hopefully, is often).
That Lynn Chorn from www.wherethewindsblow.com is one fabulous lady. And, in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, she carries this terrific Breast Cancer Awareness Mah Jongg Set.
I own this set and I can promise you that it is special and something that I treasure. It is a great gift for any and everyone, especially those whose lives – or the lives of loved ones – have been touched by breast cancer.
Check out these wonderful “Find the Cure” Jokers that match the pink glitter tiles of the set:
And look at everything that comes with this set, including the great pair of dice and pink racks with pushers attached!BTW, the set also comes with ten regular pink glitter Jokers, just in case you want to use the “Find the Cure” pink ribbon tiles for something else.
And now Lynn is selling these special dice alone for only $5. What a great gift this is for anyone who has been touched by this disease (and we all know at least one person, don’t we?)
My turn to host again and of course you all know how much I love to do this! It is always so much fun for me to have the OMs over for good food, great laughs, and lots of Mah Jongg. And yesterday was no different…
Lunch started out with Curried Butternut Squash Soup with Condiments (a Barefoot Contessa recipe, of course!) followed by a basic chicken salad mixed with feta cheese and artichokes (as always, recipes and photos will follow tomorrow).
And then game play began! In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Mah Jongg set we used today was the Pink Ribbon/Breast Cancer set. We played today in memory of my mom who died from breast cancer so many years ago. This very special set came from Where the Winds Blow, in case you would like to have one, too. We all just love this set! Here is a photo of the pretty pink glitter tiles and the special Pink Ribbon Jokers that you order separately:
