Chillin With the Wendolens
About a week ago:
Happy Birthday Grandpa!
I didn’t quite catch how old he was actually turning.. We just stuck 27 candles on the cake and called it a day. I’m going to say seventy-something. Big year!
This time, all the food credit goes to my mother, Ting. She took a trip to Ranch 99, cake back loaded with ingredients, and cooked up a storm for the whole family including my brother, dad, grandparents, aunt, uncle, and cousin. So today I’m just going to show off our feast with bad quality pictures and Chinese food.
Noms! Actually, I don’t really know what this is. I think they’re garlic sprouts and what my mom refers to as “Chinese Bacon”
Once again, I can only guess, but I believe this is chopped Gobo Root with Green Onions. When raw, they are long, pointy roots perfect for a sword fight.
YUM! The only time I voluntarily eat fish is when my dad cooks snow fish with 葱姜蒜(the three ingredients apparently essential when cooking fish in China-green onions, ginger, and garlic)
Not sure about this one. Looks like it has Chinese bacon in it though.
Pork with soy sauce and hard boiled eggs. Wow, Chinese food sounds so bad in English.
These mangoes were ridiculously sweet, it was fantastic!
Possibly one of my top five favorite fruits right here… Aw yeah
This means my mom’s dad. Yay! You can still see the candle marks! The cake was a vanilla cake with lemon filling and a creamy frosting.
School is finally out, and I did some baking today for the first weekday of my summer. I’ll post the pictures tomorrow. Spoiler Alert: muffins
The apricots are ripening…
