day 1383 – mapo tofu


my family is away in asia so we had our’s early. this is the perfect time to have some lomo time. i’m stuffed from our home cooked meal as tried our hand at making mapo tofu and siu mai. it turned out very tasty. ┬áthe only adjustments i would make for next time is taking out the black bean paste and the proportion of tofu to meat. we’ll be using each other as test subjects while i have the entire house to myself. the weekend passed by too quickly but it was a pleasant one

enjoying dimsum with family on a saturday afternoon is an aspect i have missed out on all these years. if it wasn’t spent going to┬áchinese school, it was math, kumon, work, or taekwondo. don’t remember when was the last time i was able to sit down and do just that, it’s truly a luxury. i haven’t done a good job making time for my family as of late, time to get my priorities right

it’s been quite some time since i have eaten at home with the rest of my family. guess mom felt estatic that i was finally present and went crazy with cooking dinner tonight, but that’s what mom’s do. seven dishes is way too much food for five people, especially when both me and my mom are really small eaters
