Journey To Sonoma

SET OUT ON THE ROAD AGAIN, this time to Sonoma! A place I have never been though I heard of it numerous times.  It was a two hours drive from home and on the way, we stopped at Vacaville for breakfast at Wendy's.  We quickly grabbed a bite, cod fish burger and we were all set again... to go shopping the at the Outlet stores in Vacaville!  Though we were only given half an hour, we did not mind, just one shop we wanted to enter, that is the Fossil outlet.  I think we spent more than half an hour inside, he came looking for us... LOL... and our journey continued.... Somehow we managed to purchase a few things, just at Fossil... I wonder how many hours we would take if we were to walk the whole area!  Ladiessssss.....

We made another stop again.. this time the driver wanted us to try the Best ice cream he has ever eaten... Frozen Freeze.... yes, though it was still freezing outside, all of us wanted to get one to try.. a medium one too!  There is no such word as FAT when it comes to desserts! LOL...
Before setting off the journey, I "fooled" around again... 
Setting out in the car... for breakfast, shopping and desserts...
At Fosters Freeze....
Taken against the sun...
This is the best, so it seems.. 
Vanilla Ice Cream!!
Not at all sweet.... hmmmm.... 
So everyone can eat....slurp..lick..bite... 
After our belly are full, our journey continued on.... 
Taken from our moving car... 
Passing through lots of vineyards... all the way to our resort....
All over on the main road and up the hills....
Beautiful spring green green grass of home....
Sonoma....


*one disadvantage though... no wifi at the condo...
no wifi means no oxygen*

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
