our home cooking for the holidays





My mother leaves for Shanghai tomorrow, and I'm facing the prospect of living alone with my father for the next few weeks. To say we have somewhat of a volatile relationship would be putting it kindly. So I remind myself of some of meals we had over the holidays. Like the fresh dumplings we made, skins and all. Or the beef tenderloin dishes - one in a traditional Shanghainese curry beef soup, the other poached and served with a garlic/chili sauce.

Food-wise, we should be ok. We've devised a system where we share grocery shopping duties - he washes, I cook. And I handle everything on weekends. But in practice? We'll see. We'll see . . .
