Last Thursday (Jan. 5) was my birthday and the following Jan. 6 was my dad’s, so we decided to combine it into one dinner while the whole family was together.
My mom prepared a chicken entree, which is one of my dad’s favorites. She used this recipe as a base and modified it slightly.
Along with salad, japchae, and steamed kabocha squash!
I had a good plateful of japchae and kabocha, both of which my mom prepared specially for me! I’m so grateful that my mom is an amazing cook.
Maybe I should put up a recipe for this japchae next time, because it is seriously bomb. Leftovers made it to my tummy for the next day’s lunch. 🙂
Happy birthday dad! Hope you will stay healthy this year too!
I’m back in school now. I did miss the streets of Boston a bit, but I miss my parents (and the food) even more. Guess I have to wait ’til March for spring break (sigh). Until then, I must withstand the battle of spring semester.
