Stir-fried crab meat and glass noodle


4-year-old and 6-year-old were fighting over who would choose a TV show to watch today. It was my daughter’s turn. So, my son gave in:

– Fine, you can choose. But you have to choose “Cars”, okay?

So much about democracy!

Meanwhile, we all voted for this dish, including our youngest. Enjoy!
