We're sorry for not posting last night about our July 4th celebration with my family. It was a crazy, busy day, but here we are tonight posting about the fun celebration
|Our cooked dumplings|
We were intending on making our fried dumplings and we did, but we had a bit of a jam and than ended up boiling the dumplings. I was quite disappointed that our dumplings didn't turn out the way I wanted it to. It turns out that we used the wrong pan.
|Vietnamese Grilled Chicken & Pork Chop|
Mom didn't make this. My dad bought this from the Vietnamese restaurant near by our house. It was tasty and lightly sweetened. My only complaint was that my dad or the staff at the restaurant forgot to give us the sweet fish sauce.
|Meat from Daisy May's|
Unfortunately I forgot which rib was which, but these are the ones we had: Kansas City Sweet and Sticky Ribs and the Memphis Dry Rub Pork Ribs. I don't remember which one I had, but whichever one I did have - it was amazing. The meat came right off the bone and was moist and tender.
I really liked the macaroni & cheese. It was creamy and just the right amount of cheese. The baked beans were awesome because it had a barbecue smokiness to it. The Bourbon peaches were awesome and sweet.
|Sweet Potato & Taro with Tapioca|
I'm not sure how many people had it, but I definitely had a cup to myself. It was amazing! I really tasted the love and hard work mom put into the dessert. I need to learn how to make this, seriously! This is one of my favorite Asian desserts.
I hope you all have had a Happy July 4th and stay tuned for our next and exciting post.
