Meanwhile in BC

Mom has been cooking a LOT back home recently!

Arnie has been cute! Well… not really. We always joke that he looks like a horse now.

Cute messages from Mom! “Oh no. Oh no.”

Mom made pasta salad for the homestay students and some cinnamon coffee for herself.

Seline enjoyed a sushi lunch with her friend Brianna!

Mom did a little baking without me! Pumpkin muffins and swirled pecan cake from a boxed mix.

Congee with meat, and two Chinese dinners that Mom cooked. Cooking for one is hard, but imagine cooking for NINE! That’s what my mom has to do every meal of the day.

Hi Seline! Hey Arnie.

Breakfast for the students: toast, fruit, eggs, beans. And tortellini with creamy mushroom sauce and chicken noodle soup for Seline!

Noodles with meat and meatballs and shrimp and egg. Whoa… deluxe. Chips, which Mom has recently been addicted to recently. Check out that tortellini – Costco’s massive packs are THREE in one!

Mom posts regularly on her Weibo account: this fried rice was made with sausage, chicken, peas, egg, and mushrooms. Seaweed soup in the back!

Sometimes I get a little homesick, but with messages from Mom and long FaceTime sessions, I don’t feel too lonely. 🙂 Can’t wait to go back home soon!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone 🙂
