Mum's Cooking

Between my parents' and our own activities and social commitments, we manage to do meals at their place about once a week.

Invariably, we'll always be treated to a pot of double-boiled soup - where the goodness of all the meat, bones, and many herbs are infused into the broth.

There will also be freshly steamed fish, of which my mum often chooses to do cod, as it is Roboman's favourite. This one pictured here was delicious. I don't know why it didn't taste as good the last (and only) time I attempted to cook the dish at home!

We will also always have the obligatory green leafy vegetables. The greens that my mum feels we don't eat enough of, and she is probably right!

And, saving the best for last, there will always be one 'special' dish. Something different from the staple soup-fish-vegetable dishes - a dish varies with each visit.This week it was Chilli Prawns. Yummilicious! I loved the spicy gravy and had lots of it over my (white) rice. (The parents eat brown rice when they are on their own - but I don't like brown rice so when we're visiting mum cooks white)

Mum also always prepares HUGE fruit platters for the after dinner chit-chat sessions. With this particular dinner, she served us blueberries, strawberries, purple grapes and papaya. Now you know why I love colours =)

We're so loved!
