Good Food At San Jose

ROUTINE LIFE NOW.... No running here and there, mostly in the house and going out during weekends, that is my kind of life here in San Jose.  

There is nothing much going on here, except the weather now is cold, I am having good restful sleep at night. perhaps due to the energy all used up during the day.  Taking care of an active baby is no joke for a retiree like me, despite the used-up battery, my pains and creaking diminishes when I see and hear the baby's smiles and laughter... Tiring but satisfying.... I want to know when my weary bones give up on me... LOL... so far, they are still intact and creaks only when I sit too long on the floor.... no more spring chicken like my son and daughter in law who can spring up easily!  Gone are the days.....

Most days I cook... on and off, my son and his wife would take over the wok...

My son's special Penang fried koay teow....
Using shrimps, chinese sausage and eggs....
Too bad no spring onions on that day...
Messy at the sides.... LOL...
Other than that, very wok taste... 
especially with the added sambal with the noodles!
On another day, my daughter in law cook nestum prawns....
Yeah, more presentable and impressive too!
Our dinner on one fine evening....
Yummy, right?
Sometimes we just survived on simple set like this.... 
And this.... 
At times they picked these up at one of the dim sum shops...
LOL... 
And for lunch, mostly noodles I cook at home.... 
Empowered by minced meat....
Simple meals on normal days....
Yes, I am really a very good girl now...
At least for another few months...
LOL..

    Yes, we are old now, must slow down a bit. Take things easy and must be very very careful. Old folks must not fall down. Of course, so much joy seeing one's grandchild. Enjoy your time babysitting!

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...
