Tea Time And Desserts In Sacramento

DIAMONDS ARE GIRLS' BEST FRIENDS?  Nay for me... my best food buddy is still DESSERTS!  Alright, I admit it... I love diamonds too, (who doesn't?) but I just got to be realistic and not materialistic...LOL.. I CANNOT afford to buy diamonds, so I spend my money on desserts, they have something in common... both starts with a "D" and both are "rich" their own different ways. Diamonds make you look rich, Desserts make me look rich too... at least SIDEWAYS!  LOL....

Indeed I am growing sideways, my face is rounder and my pants are "tighter" than before.  Why?  Because I went to Leatherby's, the best ice cream in town ... for the 7th time!  I told my sisters, why not we order the senior scoops for this round?  Senior Banana Split consists of 3 scoops of ice cream whereas the normal Banana Split consists of six scoops with lots of fudge, cream and fruits.  We can share the senior ice cream among the three of us... I said.  They agreed and when the waiter came, we asked for senior ice cream and he replied, "Anyone of you turn 65 yet?"  Oh dear...... forget it!
And thus.. the normal Banana Split with 6 scoops...$12...
Our favourite Crab Sandwich... $14
That is for our tea-time....
I guess I have to wait for a couple more years to get my senior order.... 
On another day, we went to the Cheesecake Factory...
It was my first time there....
Bread was on the house as usual...
They came with 4 pieces of butter.....
We wanted something light to share....
Chicken Tacos with salsa and avocado sauce.. $4.95
A Club Sandwich... *not sure of price*
Yes, to be shared too....
That was not all....
We could not resist their display of cakes at the counter...
Had a hard time choosing what I wanted...
Ended up with this Red Velvet White Chocolate Cheesecake... $7.95
And that was what I meant... 
Give me desserts and I am very happy...
They are my best friend indeed!

  2. Claire, no one would believe you are a senior; you look like a girl! And no one would believe you eat so many desserts, you remain so slim! The food at Leatherby's looks so good! We have a Cheesecake Factory nearby.

  4. Dessert is my thing too! Ah all of you are still young, not qualified for senior ice cream yet, hah! If I live there, I will eat desserts until I have to exercise nonstop or else be unable to move due to my sheer bulk!

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

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

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...
