Yo, Cindy, it's your birthday.

It was my sister's birthday on Saturday.
On Friday we had a crazy family dinner.

Pretty self-explanatory. Chinese family...lots of food, every animal under the sun. Go team parents for cooking this all in only a couple of hours.

The Quack-quack is from Footscray.

Beef, broccoli...pretty easy to translate.

Steamed fish with spring onion, ginger and light soy. Hot oil over the top to bring it all out.

Fuck yes.

Fresh calamari cooked in prawn paste with spinach.
Yes, even hidden animals in the animals.

And I think I will always have a leaning toward vegetarian Chinese fare. These shittake mushrooms were brought back from Japan and had amazing bite. Served with steamed and sauted lettuce. My favourite.

I kind of left feeling a little sick and coma-like. I don't usually eat this much meat.

Nap time.

Oh hell yes, how I'd love if that was what my family dinners looked like!

Nah, it's a birthday deal.

If only.
