Dating Night Special At Miller & Carter, Aberdeen

MIA! Been missing from blogging for the past few days... it has been 10 years over since I started to blog, first few years, I was very faithfully writing away... I am still wondering How I was able to do that during my working years and not now when I am retired..... queer, right?

Alright, let me get back to the next post..... according to my photo gallery, this post will be on a steak post, this time we had to make reservations few days in advance.  Miller & Carter is the name and we started walking from our place to town at 5.30pm.  Our reservation was at 6pm and it took us nearly half an hour walking to reach.  That is what I like about Aberdeen... eat more and yet not worrying about gaining weight!

It was a Thursday Date night, the 3 course meal cost is special on this day.  So the 6 of us went for the Date night special though only one couple is actually "dating."  The rest of us just wanted to try the special on this evening.  Not cheap though... One person is like paying 33 pounds!

The meal started off with appetizer...
Chicken and Duck thigh for Aaron...
Mine was Calamari..
Then the main meal.... salad was served in a wooden bowl....
And fried sweet potato chips...
Aaron's order... Rum steak or something like that...
Medium done and Aaron complained it was a bit dry.....
Mine was Sirloin Steak...
Which was done to my expectations.... medium done, tender and soft....
I gave some of this to Aaron since his meat was not as nice as mine....
We had a glass of red wine for 5 pounds...
As for desserts, we chose the Sticky Toffee Pudding since this is a Scottish dessert...
Warm Caramelized Pudding.....
Brulee....
Cheese cake with chocolate toppings...
The special night for the 6 of us....
Indeed a very costly night too...
For that kind of money, it is enough to cover one week's grocery!

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...
