Nobody Beats Mom's Home Cooking!
While we were growing up, mom was always there making the meals. From scrambled eggs to hot dogs and hamburgers to steak dinners with potato and veggies, we never starved. The food she made was always delicious and we often asked for second helping.
Mom ws the best in so many ways but her cooking tood out. It might not have a gourmet meal but it always was tasty and delicious.
As I watched dear Mom prepare her meals, mind you she never had formal training but was shown by grandma simple easy meals. Since my root come from Southern China, the food had a light gravy and was mild in taste.
To this day, I still remember fondly the exact dishes that made me happy, comfort food. With the changes in weather feeling like Autumn soon, I'd like to share an old time mom's favorite recipe:
Ground beef with peas and carrots in a brown sauce (oyster sauce) over a bed of jasmine rice. Simple easy and most of all delicious. Thanks mom for the inspiration!
If anyone would like to share one of your mom's favorite recipe, drop a line in a reply. I'd love to read your story.
To all the mom's around the world, thank you for cooking for us and we appreciate all you've done to fill our hungry stomachs. We haven't forgot our favorites!
