Homecooked Meals With Mary In Aberdeen

WHEN IT COMES TO MEALS,  it is much cheaper to do own cooking than eating out.  Meaning most of the time, we do our home cooking, breakfast, lunch and dinner.  A lot more frugal this way and of course, can get to taste Asian food especially for people like yours truly here.  My kids and I are blessed with Chinese food cooked by Mary, she is always inviting us over for meals!
Mary's delightful dinner for us....
All smiles before the indulgence.... Mine is the hungry grin! Lol...

Well, what goes round must come round and one evening I invited both of them to come to our place for a simplevdinner.  Homecooking is much cheaper and a better option than eating out.  Over here in the cold weather, I tend to get hungry very fast! Keep looking for snacks and I was so thankful when Mary brought over three packets of her Aberdeen moon cakes made from her own recipe!  She makes them once a year especially for this moon cake festival and orders keep coming in many days before the festival.  I normally don't eat much mooncakes back in Malaysia but Mary's mooncakes are very addictive.  I can easily finish one mooncake at one go!
Mary Moh's freshly baked mooncakes.... Fresh from the oven....
Dinner for six... Just Assam cod fish curry, ginger mushroom chicken marinated in brandy, kale with anchoives and ABC soup....
Before and after dinner.... A cup of Ipoh Hazelnut coffee and mooncakes for fellowship!

  1. The design on Mary's mooncake are very well defined. I note the serving spoon in every dish👍👍

    I love mooncakes but not ones with fatty pork but I have not try snowskin and jelly mooncake. Perhaps, I will get the opportunity to make mooncake in the near future.

    What is an ABC soup? I am only familiar with ABC desserts. Ipoh hazelnut coffee sounds exotic!

    1. Yes, her mooncakes are really worth eating, no preservative and less sweet! ABC soup,is nice.. Just dump in whatever that blends...

  4. You know, you can hardly find fresh from the oven mooncake in Malaysia anymore. Have to go to Aberdeen to get fresh and delicious mooncake!

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...
