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?

  4. I like such gathering!! Home-cooked is the best, can taste a bit of this and that.

    I learn to fry fishes so you can say I am skillful when it comes to frying fishes now. Hehe.

  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.

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

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....

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
