A Welcoming BBQ Party In Sacramento

MY SISTER ORGANIZED A WELCOMING PARTY FOR US THREE MALAYSIANS and introduced us to her close friends... LOL.. That is the most appropriate word and a good excuse for good food, fellowship and bonding with her good friends and neighbours.  My sister is really good in these type of food party held in her backyard patio, everything went on smoothly and all of us had a good time eating, talking, singing and dancing, the last part is to shed off the numerous calories from the food! LOL...

Our welcoming party started at 3pm, that is the best time so as to avoid the cold evening in the open.  The weather was fabulous, even the sun seem to be the hottest around that time, we did not feel it scorching our skin. *If that happens in Malaysia, we  would be sunburnt or having heatstroke*  LOL... I was feeling all excited, I was given a task to do... Spaghetti Tomyam!
All in the mood to "party"... LOL... 
Part of the food we prepared... 
Desserts... A "Welcome" Cake!
Fresh Cherry Pie!!
And the party starts... 
  


Meeting everybody... 
And a group picture for remembrance as the party continues....
Oh did anyone notice my blue sandals????
I didn't really notice the contrast till I received some comments about it!
LOL....

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
