ABC should be a Majestic Mess
My family loves ABC so much their eyes light up when someone asks, "Oi chap suit mou?" (Anyone up for some shaved ice?).
As each gets up from the table to attend to The Bizniz, I slink into the background hoping no one would ask me. I don't have the heart to say, "I pass" because they love it so much.
In recent weeks, we have taken a shine to red rice and since it's Lent season, I'll be cooking more plant-based dishes.
