BLOG OF THE MOMENT: I Eat Therefore I Am
All things food and travel were discussed, including stories of PGs childhood and her mothers horrid cooking. She told us that her mothers "cat vomit stew" was the only ever recipe to be pulled from Chowhound for being so bad and went on to claim that her mother is the worlds worst cook. Sadly, the family still has to endure the suffering every Christmas, with a feature being pre-cooked microwaved turkey roll with thick gravox gravy. Ella, on the other hand is an excellent cook, even if she does allow the kids the occasional "marathon dim sim", which disgusted some members of the group. We all had a good chuckle at our good and bad eating habits.
On a more delicious note, here are some pictures of the wonderful food we enjoyed. Everything was excellent, and it was an afternoon well enjoyed by all.
With much of the group starving there was great excitement when Cindy arrived; her tofu balls were the first item we got to enjoy.
