My Mama is an avid cook and she’s very proud of the fact that I’ve taken an interest in it the last couple of years. We chat on the phone pretty often, most of the time the topic of “what are you making today?” comes up, and we exchange tips of what to do in the kitchen to make food taste better or healthier. I’ve decided for this year’s Mother’s Day, instead of taking her and my Dad out, I would cook some dishes of her choice. Earlier this week she picked out 3 dishes from my blog. I shopped and prepped the ingredients on Thursday, then brought the stuff over on Friday to cook for them. Here are some photos of my parents and the Mother’s Day dishes:
Dished that were chose:
I have to say it was a bit difficult to cook outside of the comfort of my kitchen, even though I did not want my Mom to lift a finger, but she had to help me retrieve dishes and cookware throughout the cooking process. It also took a little longer than expected, so I can tell my Parents were pacing back and forth (probably due to very hungry bellies). On top of that the sauce from the steamed fish overflown and dripped onto one of the cloth formal dining room chair, which I totally felt awful about… The good thing is my Parents were very patient and supportive, both gave me an “A” for the taste and efforts, so I was very happy that they enjoyed the lunch overall!
I hope you enjoyed this blog posting, I feel very fortunate to be able to do something nice for my Mom and Dad on my Mom’s special day. Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms who are reading. I can not wait to cash in the “coupons” my little girl made me, there are suppose to be some special treats in store for me (Animal care, breakfast in bed and massages) Yippeee!
