Sometimes, my hard little heart bursts with so much love for my mother.
Birthday was last last week. Half-expected we’d go out for dinner. More than half-hoped it was home-cooking. Train’d it back into the ‘ville, walked through the front door, stopped… and smiled.
Mama was cooking.
And cooking up a storm! Slaving over the stove from the minute she had gotten home…deliciousness wafting through the house…table set as if we were entertaining, bottle of wine breathing… her little 5″1 (if that) frame practically jumping with excitement. And my father beaming b/c he had actually kept the secret. I know, right? The sweetest.
Menu for the eve:
- tofu & egg drop soup
- lobster w. fresh ginger
- king oyster mushrooms & scallions
- basa fillets, vietnamese-styles
- asian greens with garlic & mushrooms
Seriously delicious & made with love. The BEST combination. Don’t worry bro, I’m sure you’ll get the same treatment next week.
Sadly, didn’t have my camera. Snapped w. iPhone – Hipstamatic.
