An Invitation To Mouth-Watering Dinner In Sacramento

MY LAST EVENING IN SACRAMENTO... dinner time was spent at my sister's BFF house.  She invited both of us for a special dinner, all homecooked!  That was what I love... trying out other nationality's dishes, their ways of cooking is equally scrumptious and mouth-watering!

For the three of us, she practically prepared a feast... LOL... we surely could not finish them all.... 

Started off with an appetizer....
I went rice-less.... 
Wouldn't want to fill up the space in my stomach with the carbo... 
LOL.... 
Vietnamese wrap with 4 shrimps and homegrown vegetables from her garden...
I love this dish....
Squash with shrimps, long beans with coconut milk.... 
Slightly spicy which is good for me.... 
I ate a lot of the squash...
Taste something like a combination of yam and pumpkin... 
How I wish I could fry my fish this way.... 
My fish always ended up "semi-naked" if not "naked".... 
LOL... 
And a big bowl of desserts....
Red beans, bananas, sago and coconut milk.... 
It was not so sweet so I ate quite a lot!
This is a feast to me!
The dinner was about to begin....
Ooopsss... let's have one for the album....
Thank you, D for the scrumptious dinner!!
Till we meet again some day....

  1. What a delicious meal! Love the wrap, the squash dish, fried fish and red bean dessert. That dessert sounds very rich and thick! Something like a thick pekat tong sui.

  2. I love that pumpkin masak lemak, looks so delicious! I wonder what fish those are - looks good too...and of course, the Vietnamese rolls. Just bought a whole lot of prawns - I think we can have that one of these days!

    So where are you off to next, after Sacramento? That is where your sis stays, right? Going over to your son's place now to start babysitting?

  6. I love home cooked meals and this one looks great. Love the wraps, prawns and fish. The dessert looks a bit think but I think the banana makes it yummy. I have yet to taste Filipino food.

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...
