Mom's Magic Touch

Hi all! I've been staying away from computers and the Internet for a while after a small procedure to my eyes. But I'm back in action now!

Mom cooked a heart and tummy-warming bowl of mee suah (a delicate rice flour noodle) for lunch. It was something so simple yet so delicious! She did up a soup stock of dried oysters which made the soup incredibly sweet, then added some seasoned minced meat. An egg went in to be poached before the mee suah was blanched in the soup and quickly taken out. Mee suah has great absorbant qualities and the tendency to "expand" so it has to be quickly blanched and eaten before it starts its absorbing all the soup!

Here it is! A hot, steaming bowl of mee suah

We truly enjoyed every last noodle and last drop of soup! I don't know what it is that makes anything Mom touches taste so good! It must be the magic touch all Moms seem to have! :)
