Mom and lumpia

Lumpia is no stranger in this blog. But these are my lumpia ... and nothing beats Mom's lumpia. It was cool, being able to photograph her making these in the kitchen of the house I grew up in.

Mom prepares to cook lumpia, notice how she's just a speedy blur in all these photos--Mom doesn't screw around in the kitchen! She's got her mise en place all ready.

I love the pink scarf. She's like the Dr. Who of the kitchen.

Uh-oh, the coat comes off--she'll show that wok who's boss! Now you know where I get my fighting prowess from.

A huge load of lumpia guts!

Which amounted to five dozen fried lumpia! A happy Thanksgiving, for sure!

and nice to see your mum whizzing around the kitchen! (doesn'y food always taste best when your mum cooks it?)

Ha! Another scene from the Filipino Space Time Continuum! What is it with our mothers wrapping themselves in layers rather than turning the heat on;)

Bev and Ollie, I love watching her zip around the kitchen, too! She really comes alive when she's cooking. The lumpia is delicious! You should try making it!

Miss Eliza, I posted my recipe here. If you make it, let me know how it turns out!

Marvin, no kidding! Plus, she seemed to always be the coldest one in the house. Ah well, she's the mom, and what she says, goes!

Kribha, I may just keep posting them until you finally make them! ;D
