A Real Italian Lunch At Espanol

ITALIAN FOR ONCE...

One fine afternoon our Boss took us for lunch, this time it was Italian food at Espanol Italian Restaurant at East Sacramento.  This is my first time to this place and first time drinking cocktails too while having our big portions of lunch set. 

Espanol Italian is a homey institution featuring traditional Italian dishes and drinking cocktails in an old-fashioned dining room.  We ordered a lunch set, it is 4-course family style lunch served with a bowl of soup, salad, followed by a main meal and ends with either coffee, ice tea and ice cream.
It was a Tuesday when we went there for our lunch...
Upon entering.... 
Started off with pasta and tomato soup.... 
Big servings... I managed to finish it all though... 

Hot sour dough bread servings is endless... 
Salami salad...
I could finish only half... share, share please..... 
Our main meal is Turkey with stuffings... mashed potatoes and cranberries jam.... 
Turkey special on Tuesdays.... 
And spaghetti with meat balls.... 
And Spumoni for desserts!
Our Italian Lunch at Espanol...
A real Italian treat....
We went home feeling tipsy after the red wine....
Not our fault, Boss...
No work for the rest of the afternoon... 
Siesta time!!

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
