    Wow home-made tofu! I didn’t truly appreciate tofu until I started dating my Chinese fiance (to my family it was just something you threw in a stir-fry instead of meat sometimes) now I understand it is sooo much more (including a delicious desert!) but home-made tofu would be a whole new level I imagine 🙂

    Your mother-in-law seems like an amazing cook! I love that your Chinese family still makes so many things from scratch (especially tofu and soy milk), it definitely beats buying at local stores where you never know what else is on the long list of ingredients.

    Oh my goodness, that homemade tofu sounds so delicious, I’m jealous! I’ve had tofu all different ways, but being such a thorough city girl, I’ve never actually experienced tofu made from scratch!

    Mmmmm I have to say that the Migu looks the tastiest to me (I’m a sucker for dumplings), although that zhou would be super amazing on a cold winter’s morning!!

    And dang, that tofu is the real deal!! Very jealous!

    The food looks good. Particularly the homemade tofu. You in-law must be a very good chef. I would never have the skill and time to make it.

    By the way, I had never heard of that laba festival. Is that a northern Chinese thing. No one in I know celebrate it. (Porridge looks yummy)

    Ive tried the Dongmitang a few times, and must say its not my favorite thing. Maybe its because there is no way of knowing how long these biscuits have been lying around haha i guess the ones ive tried in restaurants have propably been quite old.
    Love your homemade tofy idea though, will look into that. thanks
