This is a back-dated post... Mum's birthday was end of last month, which we had a belated mini celebration on 1 August 2010.
Like last year, we had steamboat at home. We all love steamboat, especially when mum makes them :-). It was so yummy I long to eat it right now as I'm writing... hahaha, yeah, we're all steamboat fans :-).
This is a must-have... spicy and sour chilli sauce that mum blended; the bird-eye chillis were from her garden. Lots of Mum's homemade water dumplings ("siu kow"), to top our noodles before pouring in the tasty soup. Raw seafood to be added into the pre-boiled and sieved free-range chicken and ribs soup (part of it had gone into the soup). Red meat and chicken breast meat were already in the soup, so no picture. Lots of greens! And this is hubby's favourite... deepfried soybean sheet with fish meat paste.My bowl of noodles waiting for the "liu" and flavorful soup. I had 3 servings! :-PSoup is ready! With tummies filled, everyone was happy :-). When I suggested for cakes at a nearby Secret Recipe, everyone groaned and said "No, thank you!" :-P
