Monday Memories #4






What memories of a special meal or gathering do you share? Was it at a fancy restaurant or was it toast and juice served as breakfast in bed by chubby child-size hands?

Before, we always have a family meal every Sunday because it's the only time that we can all be together coz most of us (siblings) are working far from home so we need to rent an apartment. My mother will cook our favorite Sinigang (it's a pork or milk fish with radish, water spinach, tamarind and string beans).



Sometimes we are watching a movie while eating, sometimes we'll just talk about the thing had happened to us within the week, or we'll talk about my mother's favorite tv episode. Sometimes we'll talk about my mother's cooking, she's really good at it. She's a woman of all trade. I miss her so much especially that we are celebrating mother's day this month. She's the strongest yet vulnerable woman I know.

How nice. Though it's good to have one's favorite meal, the company makes the flavor.

It sounds like your memories of familiy dinner are as good as mine, although the menu is quite different! :-) I think we all remember mom's cooking as the best ever, no one can duplicate it. Just thinking about it makes me homesick too! Thank you for sharing with us on Monday Memories!
