Simple Joys: Mom’s Cooking
Having spent most of this long weekend at my parents’ house has really made me appreciate the goodness of homemade cooking from my mom’s kitchen!
My mom grew up in Phnom Penh, Cambodia and my dad was born in Saigon, Vietnam. My mom is great cook and makes all kinds of Chinese dishes, and Southeast Asian dishes. We were never allowed to be picky eaters growing up, and I don’t think there is a type of food that I won’t eat. Having lived on my own for the last 7 years, nothing can compare to the yumminess of my mom’s food.
I don’t have one favourite dish, but I do have many favourites. I love the Cambodia soup, making Vietnamese salad rolls, any stir fried collared greens, all curries, and all marinated meats. And all congee. 🙂
