Today the Chinese are celebrating Dong Zhi (Winter Solstice Festival) which is the most important festival of the year. I've been busy as ever with work and I had cancelled my leave today but thank goodness I do not need to stay back late today. This means I can go back to my parents' home for a homecooked festive meal... YAY!!!!
Last year, I had mentioned some of the dishes that will regularly appeared from my mom's kitchen but this time, AHEM, I've got pictures to show!
Would there be lotus root soup or old cucumber soup?
Steamed chicken which I think a must.
Siu yoke (roasted pork)
Deep fried fish.
Hakka Zhar Nyuk (braised pork with sea cucumber and black fungus).
Or would there be braised pork ribs with sea cucumber and clams?? Psssttt... usually there is a sea cucumber dish cos my mom super sayang (love in Malay) her one and only son-in-law!!! He loves sea cucumber.
Mandatory of a vege dish, stir fried brocolli and cauliflower.
And ends with tong yuen (kuih ee) which I have no picture to show.
Tell me, if these dishes are featured on your dining table as well???
