Dinner at SC's parent's means a satisfying meal of delicious homemade Chinese food!
Take a look of what we had yesterday for dinner :)
Steamed squid with glass noodles, garlic, chilli, fermented black beans, topped with plenty of fresh coriander. Imagine the glass noodles soaking up all those delicious flavors. Yum!
Steamed small crabs, served with vinegar. They're so tiny and cute!
Marinated (lo sui) beef shin and chicken gizzard. Tender, juicy and flavorful! She made extra so that we could pack some leftover for tonight's dinner.
Pan fried pork neck, simply seasoned with salt, pepper and sugar. Charred & flavorful exterior, tender and juicy interior. Fat at its most fabulous form!
Steamed pork with fermented beans and preserved vegetables. Love the touch of sourness in this dish. Baby M feasted on the tender potatoes from the homemade Chinese-style tomato soup.
Stir fried pumpkin with fermented black beans and garlic. SC's mom is the queen of using pumpkin in stir fries and her pumpkin dishes are always yummy!
For dessert, we had lots of fruits, watermelon, rockmelon...and we had the juiciest, sweetest, biggest lychees I've had so far!
SC's mom shared a tip of now to make the lychees less "heaty", which is soaking them in salted water. Leave them soaked in the fridge if you wanna serve them cold. You can rinse the water off before serving.
Nothing's more refreshing than these cold lychees.
What a dinner!
Show me the yummies you had last weekend, will you?
PS. You must've noticed that the pictures were all distorted and weird? That's because I was playing with my brand new wide angle lens. Heheheh
