Mom’s food

My mom out did herself this weekend.  She made 3 dishes and dessert.  Looks messy, but it’s so good!

David’s favourite -steamed  spareribs with black bean sauce

Stir-fried snow peas and celery with prawn and chicken.

Chicken curry with all my favourite carbs – potato, sweet potato and yams
 Taro dessert with coconut milk and tapoica or as my mom would call it, hot bubble tea.

Thank-you mom.
