Since mom arrived 1.5 month ago, I haven’t cooked AT ALL! When it was only mom and I, we ate simple food. A lot of veggies and some seafood. But now that my dad arrived, more food is needed. Let me tell you, my dad has a monster appetite!!! 😯 He seems to have a bottomless stomach. He doesn’t excercice other than walking 1-2 hours everyday, but his appetite is ADMIRABLE! He’s 64 yrs old and he eats like a teenager! Everything seems so tasty to him and he likes trying EVERYTHING! I’m the bad “daughter” telling him constantly to “Not eat too much”, “it’s high in saturate fat”, “it’s high in colesterol”, etc. Sometimes he’d listen, sometimes not. 😦
Samples of daily food:
cucumber sauteed with shrimp head
broccoli with mushrooms
tofu with shrimp
garlic green peas
bok choy with mushrooms
辣酱 my dad’s favorite dish. Cubed pork, potatoes, carrots, oyster mushroom, smoked tofu cooked with a red spicy sauce.
fried fish cooked with chinese pickles
water chesnut sauteed with chinese pickles
chinese chives sauteed with pork, smoked tofu and dry chili
sauteed green beans
My mom is in charged of the cooking and I do the rest: BAKING! 😆
The day we came back from Orlando, I baked her pound cake with green raisins.
and when my Dad arrived the following day, I made him bread with dry pork floss
I’m clipping a lot of other baking goodies to make. They’re leaving tomorrow for a tour (Niagaras Fall, Boston and NYC) for 6 days. A little break from my dear parents 😉 Wait… does it mean I have to cook? Maybe! Mom prepared 70 wontons for me in case that I continue to be lazy 🙂
Q: What’s your parents’ eating style? My mom eats everything in moderation. My dad is a lost case. 😦 He enjoys EVERYTHING TOO MUCH!
