Happy Father's Day Homemade Dinner
We had a simple dinner at home celebrating Father's Day. I didn't make that cake. It's a black and white chocolate mousse cake from Arome bakery, costs about HK$160 (credit card discount) with a free pack of "Japanese" cookies. Good deal!
The dinner prep was really a father-son bonding session. What on earth were they trying to make?
This. Homemade roast pork - the recipe comes with the halogen cooking pot.
Did it work?
We love how it is transparent and we can all argue about the state of the food in the cooking pot. Perfect ice breaker for family gathering!
The father-son bonding only got stronger from there.
Proven by how SC and his dad collaborated plucking out remnants of pig hair...
...and after 15+30 minutes... voila!
Tasty roast pork! The meat's tender enough. The skin could use a little more poking, but not bad at all!
Here's MIL whacking away the siu yuk. She looked damn cool doing it. Don't mess with her.
Tasted AMAZING with rice. Not advisable for those on low carb diet :D
We also had beef curry. Very spicy.
And fish wrapped mangoes FIL learnt from TV.
If I could ever find that TV chef who taught this, Imma have to whack him/her with a cutting board. What a waste of beautiful fresh mangoes!
The cake has tool box shaped chocolate. Everybody loved it.
I grew up without a dad, but I love celebrating father's day with SC's family :)
Happy belated father's day, y'all. Hope you had a fantastic father's day celebration :)
