Dim Sum Sunday

Yesterday we were invited to celebrate my Aunt Sylvia's 91st birthday at Mandarin Ogilvie in Ottawa. There were twelve of us for Dim Sum and the lazy susan was doing a lot of spinning with all sorts of things coming off rolling wagons that were whizzing by.

I loved the variety of garlic-infused, steamed fungi.

And I was challenged to eat a squishy, shrimp-stuffed noodle with chopsticks.

I wasn't mad for the order of duck feet that arrived.

Richard liked the flavour and as he said, once you got over the texture, it was pretty good.

There's Aunt Syl almost putting a foot in her mouth!

Duck foot remains on Richard's plate. Yum-o?

Dessert was yummy. I had the mango pudding.

Others had the coconut jello.

And how do you like this for a 182 year combo? Aunt Syl and her sister-in-law Bert, both of whom are 91 and sharp as tacks. After the meal we all took turns telling jokes. Aunt Syl told a few zingers as did Aunt Bert!

Duck foot. I don't think I can get my head around duck feet. But the photos are terrific!

I think I'd take a pass on the duck feet, and I'm dubious about the weenie-in-a-roll thing, but everything else looks splendid! I haven't had dim sum in years.

And your Aunt Syl and Bert both look fantastic. What great genes you have in your family.

Duck feet do not at all taste like chicken.

Hi guys: now that I look at the picture I think I made a mistake. They were chicken feet, NOT duck feet. I don't see any webbing!

We can buy chicken feet at our local Safeway...
