Mother's Cooking #3

This will be another post showcasing my mother's delicious home cooking. Honestly, I can never get enough of her cooking. Over the past weekend, I've had the chance to taste some more of the good stuff when I returned back to my hometown Penang. This round, the cooking happened over at my house, which we were decorating up in preparation for the upcoming big day.

Sweet and simple, a table for four.

Janice was around too that day, hence the table for four, namely my parents, Janice and myself. Do check out below on what mother whipped up for lunch that afternoon. Taken with rice, the stomach is thankful for all these food.

Sure missing ma late Mama's home cook meals, ours would be very simple and nice.

BTW do know how to use chop sticks? We were all trained using chop sticks since younger days never used fork and spoon.

Bananazஇ said...

Had lots of lecturing from my late Papa who was quite strict with table manners especially with chop sticks. Cannot hold them too low or too high up must be at 3/4 height. How we hold the the bowl is equally important. The bowl cannot be placed onto our palm but must be holding with the thumb on the brim and the fingers gripping the bottom of bowl.

When I switched hand using my left with chopstick in late 90s I was quite lucky he didnt tembak me but asked "howcome you are left handed meh?". I jokingly answered yeah all this while mah haha.

Since on the subject of chop sticks seen this movie "Soong Sisters" on TV Dr Sun Yat Seng insisted to use chopsticks and bowl for his meals while his wife and the rest of the family used knife and fork for their steak. My nephew does that, his wife and 4 children on fork and spoon and he uses chopsticks and bowl. The next Dr Sun in the making.

Nice clear and sharp pix of all the dishes. Very ideal meal of 3 dishes + 1 soup. Your mama being observing the rule of thumb for 4 pax without any wastage. Love the double happiness plates.
