"Sam Pei Jie" - this is a Taiwanese chicken dish cooked with ginger, Chinese cooking wine, sesame seed oil, soy sauce and Chinese basil leaves.
Braised Chinese cabbage with dried scallops and Chinese parsley.
Shallow pan-fried Japanese tofu with minced pork, fresh mushrooms and dried cuttlefish. This dish was a big hit with the kids.
This is one of the luxuries I enjoy when my mil is around - hot piping meals 2x a day and freshly baked breads and cakes every week. She may leave for HK again after Alycia's first term exam and then I will have to take over the kitchen and wok again :(
