See how forgetful I get…. I said I would blog about the family BBQ session and I totally forgot a bout it! During the long 9days holiday, we didn’t go on any trips and we utilized our long break have movies, gathering etc.. all family oriented program of course.
The one I heart the most was BBQ. It was held at my parent’s place. I prepare and marinated almost 70% of the food, and I make ice lemon tea from scratch.. IT was SO GOOD( I mean the ice lemon tea)! We had lots and lots of food, chicken wings, bacon, chicken patty, chicken thigh, otak-otak, lamb, pepper, corn, potato, sausages, fish ball, mussels, squids, and BIL even made fu chuk yi mai for us..My personal choice of best food on that day was mussel! We brave to try it out and voila our way of preparing it was awesome!
I bought garlic bread spread and place a big chunk on the mussel, then top it up with lots of parmesan cheese and bake it! IT WAS Awesomely GOOD!!!! Cause we finish everybit of it!
Jude and Manfred behave pretty well, they have their share of food on that day, and I give them marshmallow to join in the BBQ crowd.. of course they will BBQ for 2 second and place the marshmallow into the mouth immediately.. Best behaviour award goes to my ever charming niece – Charlotte.. oh dear, a 8months old baby and all you need to entertain her was a high chair plus a chunk of honeydew… and she sits for good 30min or probably more. Her kakak don’t even have to carry her around.. Kakak was doing cleaning, Charlotte self entertaining, and the adult yakking and chatting and BBQing away….
I love my family.. love my own family of four, love my own very noisy and busy family with 5siblings in all.. we hated each other growing up.. thinking we are ripped of privilege cause we have to share everything with so many siblings. But today I am thankful and always thank my mum for giving me so many younger siblings, and I admit my life will never be the same wo my two sisters, and my brothers too…
And I am grateful for my hub’s family, who is ever so considerate and loving. They nag alot but they do it out of love… we are so spoiled by my PIL to always make sure we get hot piping meal on dinner table. A phone call back and my MIL is ever ready to whip up a meal for us…..
Thank you Lord for blessing me with such loving families. And A loving family I shall formed…
