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!

  1. Oh my!!! That banana split sure looks like a killer! Enough for at least half a dozen people to share.

  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!

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...
