LUNCH: Applegreen with Byron, Betsy & Jodi! It's always fun catching up with college friends! Undergrad seems like it was so long ago...anyway, this was an American restaurant and they had really good food.
We started off with apps, Asian Nachos and Cajun Fries in a Trash Can (loved the name & presentation); I got an orange sesame chicken salad. It was a half size, but so big for non-US standards!
DINNER: My dad's birthday at Champagne House! It was a family dinner and yet another 10-course meal and their portions were huge. I'll let the pictures do the talking.
(clockwise): Duck, tofu, BBQ pork, roasted pork, "rubberbands" (jellyfish); chicken; fried rice; spring rolls with abalone and goose meat
(Clockwise): Lobster with (ee-mein) noodles; Sea cucumbers, lettuce and mushrooms; clams, squid and veggies; shark fin soup
My cousin bought a black forest cake for my dad and my dad thought the peach cakes (a delicacy) on top were real, but it was just made out of sugar. Sob story.
*HIGHLIGHT* of my day...at dinner my grandma told everyone at the table she didn't recognize me (She just saw me literally a week ago) because I got FATTER. Leave it to asian families to break it to you bluntly. Can someone please find me a workout routine that involves eating? Muchas gracias.
