Another family dinner gathering. My sisters and my parents come all the way from Richmond, and we are celebrating a ceremony (early) for my daughter known as “Retreating saliva.” Note: Pardon the translation; it’s from Taiwan, and we are to hang some cookies or bread using a red string and put it around the baby’s neck. Then each person takes a piece of the bread and dips a bit of the baby’s drool and eats it. Tradition has it that by doing this, the drooling is to be gradually stopped.
Before doing that, we need to fill ourselves up first. My sister is cooking the rice cake:
Cut them into pieces, soak them in beaten eggs and pan fried them. Yummy~
Soup – Corn, carrots, mushroom, needle mushroom, and pig blood cake
Mixed Platter – Hand-shredded Chicken, Roasted Port, Beef Tongue, and Pork Tongue
MaPo Tofu – My favourite~ Yum~
Tomato w/ Scrambled Eggs
