Dungeness Crab For Dinner

ITS THE SEASON AGAIN... my son told me that Dungeness crabs are now on sale.  It always come aound this time of the year.  And so we took the advantage of the seasonal promotion, in some supermarket, they are selling at prices between 6.99 to 9.99 per pound.

These Dungeness crabs are commonly sold in Asian markets, maybe because ther are a lot of Asians around here and they are familiar with the cooking of these crabs.  As for us, we just do it one way.... Steaming!

One evening, they brought back three crabs priced at $43 ...all cleaned and cut at the supermarket staff... we just have to clean them and put into the steamer.... 

Just steaming... no seasoning added.... 
Baked some chicken wings marintated with Korean Bulgogi sauce....
Steamed three cobs of corn.... 
and sprinkled with Cajun seasoning...
No rice... just crabs and chicken...
And desserts something like Cendul Ice Kacang...
LOL...
That is why I don't miss Malaysian food much... 
As for the three hard shells, my daughter-in-law cooked porridge with them...
Crab porridge for morning beeakfast...
Oh dear, I forgot about cholesterol when it comes to eating crab that day!

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....

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...

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...
