Girls came over tonight to join us for dinner. I had to made some changes to my dinner menu tonight – cooking their favorites: chicken wings, glass noodles with napa cabbage, tofu with minced meat and steamed eggs. Various conversations were flying around the small round dining table, just like it was when they were staying with us. We talked about college life, friends, relationship and work. Both the girls are very animated, so the boys always enjoyed listening to them talk.

Hooray for the simple, yet delicious meatless Monday meal! Yippie for the tofu and the vegetarian egg rolls. Kudos to all the veggie sides!FullSizeRender 18

Scarfed down this meatless Monday meal so that we can cheer for Game 5 of the NBA finals! Boys tried okra for the very first time and of course not a big fan, oh well, maybe try roasting it next time? Dai Bee loved the enoki mushrooms with the garlic onion sauce. Ah Lo tried it but avoided another bunch. Can’t get that guy to like any kind of mushrooms. Ugh…IMG_8007

Super excited to see the Warriors take the trophy! Go #Warriors!

Beef ribs are on sale at our local supermarket ($2.99/lb vs. $5.99/lb) and beef ribs are what we are having for dinner tonight. The boys love these and ordered them every single time they see it on the menu. I do make them every now and then, especially when for a big sale like this one! #mealsonabudgetIMG_7099

Simple and delicious dinner. IMG_7104

Meatless Monday, oh, how I missed having the greens.

The plainest of meatless Monday meal makes everyone full, healthy and happy. Pan fry tofu, garlic stir fry chayotes, and oyster sauce lettuce are the continuation of our meatless Monday tradition.

Dinner will be quick tonight. We need to cheer on one of our nephews whose team is playing for the championship today. So I hastily put something together for our meatless Monday meal! Something that doesn’t require much cooking and here you are…img_5956img_5963

My inlaws celebrated their year-end CNY dinner (團年飯) tonight. This is the first year they don’t require their daughters (who live in the suburbs) to come home for dinner. So it was just our family and the inlaws. Over the years, my MIL would cook up a storm for these new-year dinners. Food is very similar on both days. This year, since it was just the 6 of us, there’s no need to have a full feast. My MIL agreed to make the usual stuff, roast pork, chicken, fish and soup. I made these two and brought over. I made steamed tripes and tofu with broccoli. These are common on my dinner table, but not theirs. They are very traditional folks. I was afraid they might reject the tripes dish because of the “color.” So, I placed it in a red bowl and added some red bell peppers to make it a bit more colorful. They both enjoyed these dishes and there were no leftovers. Whew!

Here’s the full meal. The chicken didn’t make it to the table on time for this picture.
