Crabby Dinner With The Mohs

CRABBY DINNER...

Buying the crabs is easy, cooking them is a problem!!  There are seven crabs to be cleansed and cooked, that is the real problem for Reanaclaire in this small kitchen with small pots and utensils.  Eventually I have to use three different forms of cooking these messy crabs.  LOL...

I ended up baking four in the oven, one in the multi cooker and two over the gas stove!  Oh my goodness, it was real messy and I don't think I want to do that again unless someone takes over the cleaning, brushing and cooking up the crabs.  No wonder they charge more outside... LOL..

OH, I forgot to mention this... The "vampire-styled slaying" was not done by me, I could not bring myself to do it... I am only in charge of bathing them up and making them edible... LOL..
Cleaning and brushing the shells.... takes a lot of time and effort!
Especially big ones... oh yes, needs a lot of hammering too!
Ended up baking and comes out like these... 
Too much flesh and messy!!
No wonder some do not like to eat crabs... they need too much fingers on them... 
Our dinner on that night... 
Mary brought over some Greece food!
One for the album before we dig into the food!

  5. I come to this place every now and then. The LA venues are really nice, the crowd is full of regulars, and the food and drink specials are pretty good! The staff is great and really gets to know your name. Totally worth your time on any night for good food and drink.

  6. I love crabs and I don't mind the messy job of cleaning. Best of all I don't mind getting my fingers messy to enjoy eating them. You did an amazing job cooking for your guests.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
