An Easy Dinner Banquet

My first ever dinner party for the extended family where I cooked every dish. I know this is probably the most awful picture ever but it’s the only one I managed to get because I was just relieved to have everything done in time that I forgot to take individual photos of the dishes. And since it is also the only piece of evidence I have that I actually pulled this off (without starving everyone or sending anyone home hungry – I think), I have to post it:

My first dinner for the extended family...

What was on the menu:

Broccoli and Japanese Tofu in Egg Sauce
