I can hardly wait
til next week! My mother is flying up from California and is visiting for four days! Four days is so short to me, but she has to make the rent, so that's all she could take off. I'm just so happy she'll be here.
She promised me she'd teach me how to make her Orange Chicken, I know I posted about it a while ago, but it's not the same type of Orange Chicken that you see at Panda Express or any other Chinese food place. When we make it I will be sure to get the recipe written down and pictures taken. I told her I'd make the Bibingka that I recently made as well, and she is looking forward to that. I will also get the Rappolio recipe, which is a cabbage soup that my mom makes and I will post that as well.
I haven't seen my mother since December 26, 2005, and it's long overdue. My sister is currently trying to plan a trip to visit over a weekend this summer and I can't wait for that either. I haven't seen her since January 2, 2006 (I'm such a sucker for dates, I don't forget them). All I can say is, I can't wait to see them both. It's tough living 1,000 miles away from your family.
