Last full day in Montreal before I head back to my much-missed Toronto routine. And Akemi and Suji of course.
Yesterday was mom’s birthday. She took the day off from cooking, so we hit the West Island’s newest dim sum hot spot – Imperial Palace
When dining out, we all have very different tastes. Mom, for instance, prefers the shrimp dumplings, the noodles, deep fried calamari and spring rolls. My sister opts for the fried shrimp, fried pork and shrimp dumplings, and the egg tarts. I’m more of a turnip cake, barbecue pork bun, and chicken feet kinda guy.
Mom preparing her individually portioned friendship cakes for the gals at work. Yes, work. She’s 89 but still goes to work three days a week.
One of the neighbors gifted mom a half dozen eggplants.
And today, it was a birthday lunch with the ladies from work. And me (not pictured).
By the time dinner rolls around, I am feeling less than ravenous so I usually opt for a couple of eggs and some yogurt, honey, and blueberries for dessert.
This yogurt is a game-changer. That’s a glorious 11% of full fat deliciousness. It’s the highest I’ve been able to find. Do you think I can do better?
Oh, hey, look at what sits on mom’s basement bookshelf. It’s Latin for the Novice by Joseph Mallozzi, Ph.D!
