- Lap cheong rice. Chinese sausage cut up and placed in with the rice cooker while it cookes. Most delicious - we'd always try to just eat the sausage though!
- Sourdough bread and brie. I remember we'd always get the fresh baked baguettes and eat the warm, soft middle like mice on the way home!
- Teriyaki sauce baked chicken thighs/drumsticks. The crispy skin is always the best. Yoshida sauce, I think?
- Tuna fish and apple sandwiches. Little bits of apples cut up and mixed in with the tuna. So refreshing! (A close second was mac & cheese & a bag of frozen peas cooked in, yum!)
- Popcorn and hot chocolate during movie nights. Hot chocolate including both marshmellows AND whip cream. So spoiled, we were (and still are)!
- Lo han chai on rice. I survived on this in college, too!
- Chicken hearts microwaved in soy sauce. This one's a little bizarre, I suppose, but there's nothing like standing around the microwave hoping the gizzards won't blow up and make a mess.
- Mom's famous chinese chicken salad. With packs of dried top ramen for crunch!
Even without being a gourmet chef, Penga-Mom did an excellent job raising kids that love food and will eat just about anything. Anything except maybe pigs feet in black vinegar. Still can't do that one, sorry!
