New Year with the bestest of friends!

I was blessed to have spent the end of 2018 and the beginning of 2019 with my dear friends. We dined at Chef Chai’s, a Thai-fusion place with my family. My family and I always enjoy the food there. However, we were disappointed that they didn’t have the deep fried whole fish. They had sold-out of the dish before we dined there that evening. Nooo! It must be a very popular dish.

Butternut squash lobster bisque soup. That was so yummy! I am determined to use butternut squash in my cooking and make a soup.

Ordered the jumbo prawns. Absolutely delicious!

So glad they had brown rice! It was mixed with coconut milk and ginger. Interesting mix!

We couldn’t resist dessert- deep fried banana cream cheese with gelato and berries. Oh boy! So good!

An all-nighter Christmas with new traditions & memories

Merry Christmas, y’all! And Happy Birthday to Jesus! I pulled my first all-nighter in YEARS!!! I am so amazed! I think it’s the adrenaline and excitement flowing through me or something! I’ve been up for over 24-hours and I am not even tired! I know the exhaustion will hit me in a few… Haha! Gotta find some time to shut them eyes for a bit.

I had a wonderful Christmas Eve/early morning celebration with good company and food. There’s more to come later today. Making new traditions and memories with the ones who I hold dear. Bring it on!

Butternut squash with a brown sugar mix. I am in love with butternut squash! It has a combination of yams and sweet potato flavors.

And of course…quinoa!

Dinner tonight is courtesy of Costco. I have to say that they sell/make really yummy food. I love going there and discovering new dishes to try.

Wishing you and yours a very blessed Christmas Day! Rejoice!
