Our Ayi's cooking!

Our Ayi (domestic helper/childcare provider for after school) has been cooking for us Monday-Friday.  It is great to be able to get home from work at 6:00 and have dinner ready!  She was trying to make some Western dishes the first week we were here, and they were terrible.  The person she worked for before us apparently did not like to cook with any flavor.  We told her to only cook Chinese food (and I cook our American food on weekends).  Much better!  She is really a good cook.  We wish she could cook some spicier foods, but the boys wouldn't eat that anyway.  Here are some dishes she has made to give you an idea of the yummy food we are getting to try!  She cooks so much for dinner, that Mike and I take the leftovers to school for lunch the next day.  I don't have any pictures of the drumsticks or chicken wings she makes, but the boys really like those (even Jonathan eats the chicken wings!!).
I am also including some pictures of the boys from their first day of school on here.  All 3 are settling in and enjoying their new classes and making new friends.

  1. Wow...that is a lot of food! That is awesome to come home to dinner every night. No more, "what's for dinner". So glad to hear everything is going great! Thanks for sharing all the pictures!
