Father's Day

For father's day we had a homemade Chinese food extravaganza, prepared mostly by my very own father, with a few additions from other family members. You know being father's day and all we didn't want him to have to do EVERYTHING. I know, you're thinking, "It's father's day. He shouldn't have been cooking his own dinner." But really he loves to cook, and eat, so really, it was the least we could do.

Below are the various dishes he prepared. I tried to get a photo of each dish before the vultures swept in, but they're quick, so as you will see, in some cases, I got a picture just in the nick of time.

We started with Scallion Pancakes (which was the only thing not homemade), and wings, prepared my by brother-in-law.

Next up....dumplings.

Followed by ground turkey and lettuce wraps...

Followed by spare ribs...and those suckers went fast!

And some beef chow fun,

And then, to finish us off, some shrimp fried rice and peanut butter noodles (prepared by my aunt).

I wish I could say we had no room left for dessert, but of course we did. I am embarrassed to admit it was not homemade - but it was tasty!

Bon Appetit!

I suppose that would explain why I was so disgustingly full when I got home. Thanks for helping me re-live it. Really, thanks.....
