It’s now becoming a tradition for us to go to Rosaline and Tom’s house for Chinese New Year. When we arrive, we always find Rosaline in the kitchen cooking.
Since she always has the dinner well under control, we have time to socialize. Ariel is comfortable with her grandfather Tom.
We were called up for dinner. Mother Tracy brought Ariel up, but she was getting fussy.
There’s always some question about when a person is too old to receive a red envelope, but Rosaline still believes we’re all kids.
Rosaline always serves a wide variety of foods. Some are traditional (e.g. lettuce, noodles), while other are home specialties that you would never see on a Chinese restaurant menu.
After everyone has finished dinner, and the dishes have been cleared away, everyone is back for dessert.
Even with all of the family attending, there’s leftovers to take home and enjoy for a day or two later. Rosaline says that she enjoys cooking for us, because we’re a family — especially with our sons — that really eats.
