A Real Italian Lunch At Espanol

ITALIAN FOR ONCE...

One fine afternoon our Boss took us for lunch, this time it was Italian food at Espanol Italian Restaurant at East Sacramento.  This is my first time to this place and first time drinking cocktails too while having our big portions of lunch set. 

Espanol Italian is a homey institution featuring traditional Italian dishes and drinking cocktails in an old-fashioned dining room.  We ordered a lunch set, it is 4-course family style lunch served with a bowl of soup, salad, followed by a main meal and ends with either coffee, ice tea and ice cream.
It was a Tuesday when we went there for our lunch...
Upon entering.... 
Started off with pasta and tomato soup.... 
Big servings... I managed to finish it all though... 

Hot sour dough bread servings is endless... 
Salami salad...
I could finish only half... share, share please..... 
Our main meal is Turkey with stuffings... mashed potatoes and cranberries jam.... 
Turkey special on Tuesdays.... 
And spaghetti with meat balls.... 
And Spumoni for desserts!
Our Italian Lunch at Espanol...
A real Italian treat....
We went home feeling tipsy after the red wine....
Not our fault, Boss...
No work for the rest of the afternoon... 
Siesta time!!

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

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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...
