She also marinated these baby back ribs with a Korean marinade which were delicious. She refused to give me the recipe though…jerk face. LOl…just kidding…how can you tell we’re pretty close friends?
Then I got to try some more Indian dishes! They ordered a lamb dish and an eggplant dish. Sorry, I forgot to ask what the names were.
I made some bacon wrapped scallops and brought them over.
I had a bit of everything except for the lamb. I still can’t get used to the gamey taste of lamb.
Everything was delicious! I’d still like to explore with more Indian dishes and try all of your suggestions.
As if that wasn’t enough, look at this beautiful fruit tray she put out. If you’ve never tried Lychee (brown and green fruits on the right), I really urge you to try one. Such sweet, delicious, juicy fruits.
oh she wasn’t done with us yet. Her mom made more than enough creme caramel for all of us. I even took home 8 containers. They were delicious!Just something off topic, 8 is actually considered a very lucky number for us Chinese. In Cantonese, 8 is pronounced “bat” which rhymes with “fat” which means prosperous. Personally though, my lucky number has always been 6. That was my volleyball, basketball, and track number in junior high and high school. How about you, do you have a lucky number? Any reason why?
Then when I thought we were done, she pulls out cake pops for the kiddies.
A rooster and a chick – too cute!
Thank you again my dear friend. Dinner was sensational!
On Sunday we took the kiddies out to enjoy the beautiful weather. You know how men love looking at cars? Well if you know me, you’ll know I love looking at show homes. I show home hop like some people bar hop. That’s my idea of a good time. Yeah I’m lame, I know.
Anyways, Ambleside in Windermere was having a mini party to get people out to view their show homes. They had free refreshments (water, hot chocolate, cookies) and even free Funky Pickle pizza. I love FREE! Here are the kiddies sharing a cookie.
They had a free petting zoo, which my kiddies weren’t really interested in.
They were more interested in this climbing apparatus. Kids sure do love to climb!
Apparently so does Daddy….sigh. Um hun, where are your kids?
Here’s one, now where’s the other one? Luckily Mommy was watching her.
Okay, timeout for the two of you.
They even had a horse-drawn wagon ride/tour around the neighborhood.
Plus some juggling action.
Other activities included face painting, balloon animal making, caricature/cartoon drawings, and of course show homes to view. All in all it was a great event and the kids really enjoyed it. Mommy was at play last weekend so it was only fair to take the kiddies out to play this weekend. Hope you all had a great weekend as well. Until next time friends and family.
