Gingery Confinement Food


Hehehe... I finished the above all by myself in 3 meals since none in the family ate them.   I just had the last portion of my chicken wine.  Yummy!!  Burpps...  Daddy's cousin had given birth to a baby boy and we were given two big bowls of zhu geok chou (pig's trotter with black vinegar) and gai zhou (chicken cooked in rice wine) on baby's 12th day celebration last Saturday.

I still remember during confinement, the only food that I looked forward to had always been these two dishes and my mom cooked yummilicious confinement dishes.. Oh, yes, mom was my confinement lady then.. I was and am still grateful for what she had done for us. We love you, mom!

Do you like confinement food too?

I like!!! And here we have the Foochow specialty - the mee sua in chicken soup with lots of red wine and ginger...and we also have the Hakka specialty - the kacang ma. Too bad I never need to be in confinement. Muahahahahaha!!!!

Oh dear...looks like I'm the only person dislike confinement food. I hardly eat chicken wine and NEVER touched the Vinegar pig trotter. I broke a lot of confinement rules.

I love confinement food!!! Especially the vinegar trotters and chicken wine. But i don't like the wine over here, if my mum brought some for me, normally i will cook it in foochow style chicken wine.

Lucky our house on off got cook vinegar trotters, i can enjoy it and i will be the one drinking all the "soup". Yum!!
