    Dear Diary,

    I’m calling this entry, The Bosses Cut. Why you might ask? Well, last night’s prime rib dinner was delectable. After downing three delicious Blue Moons, my stomach cried out for something that will quench my hunger. The destination of choice was a familiar gathering. The food and service are wonderful. Adrian the bartender was such a cool guy. I’d ask him for a nice cut of prime rib. He brought out something called the Bosses Cut. Somehow I knew Adrian went the extra mile for this piece. The moment I saw it, it was like Christmas all over again. Such a beautiful cut. I never new a piece of meat could be this eye candy. Medium rare and 3 inch thick high. The crust was perfectly seasoned. The center was warm and tender. I rocked my steak knife slowly and as delicate as possible, not to disturb the juices. The mere act of slicing warmed my senses as I anticipate tasting the tender meat on my tongue. If heaven had a taste, this would be it. Basically, I was on cloud nine. The drink of choice at the time was a dirty vodka Gibson martini. Cool, refreshing, and with the sour I come to like in my martinis.

    Blue Moon = Eww.
    Try Hoegaarden the next time you want a white beer.

    Very nice details on your dining experience, I felt almost as if I was there with you. I always wanted to start a food blog… but never got around to doing it. I am actually waiting till I make more money so I can splurge on better food to write about. =)

    P.S. You don’t down beer, a good beer must linger in the mouth and coat the tongue so you can taste everything it has to offer.

    Dear Diary,
    It was a boring Thursday night with the kids spending the night at their grandmas, so I decided to surprise the bf with a romantic dinner. First thing, I needed candles. I quickly drove to the dollar store and bought a set of two maroon coloured candles (closest I could find to red) a set of two flat candle holders.
    The plan was to have B.C crabs, but I didn’t want to buy the crabs too early and cook them too early and have them cold by the time he got home. I decided to to wait until 8 pm to buy the crabs. Silly me, I forgot, chinatown, once it gets dark the stores closes. Both stores that sold the crabs closed at 7, so I was in a dillema. What to do, what to do…
    The only stores left open around the area were restaurants, so I decided to buy half a bbq duck and half a bbq chicken.
    Got home at 8:50 pm, quickly set the tables with the candles, plate full of the duck/chicken, two small bowls of rice, sauces, plates for bones, and two wine glasses filled with blueberry-watermelon juice from Fruitopia.
    Finish setting up the table on time to pick him up at 9 from his training/teaching classes.
    Came home, ate and watched Rocky IV while eating. It was a nice and simple romantic night. :)

    It’s medium rare. When meat is cut, the juices will come to the top.

    Very nice romantic dinner star. The bf is very lucky to have such a thoughtful person like you. Meat and rice can never go wrong. Kudos for pairing your duck/chicken with Fruitopia. The sweetness of blueberry-watermelon is great contrast to the robust flavors of bbq duck/chicken. (=

    Dear Diary,

    Yesterday i was craving something hot and sour for my taste bud. The Asian store didn’t have Mango so of course i was =(. But on the good side, i saw this nice green fresh big papaya. So figure if i wanted something hot and spicy i had to make Bok La Houng! The good thing they had the veggie i wanted to eat with it. So finally came back home and clean and did all the stuff i had to to make what i was craving for. So here’s the out come of what i was eating. I must say it was really good. Even though my mouth was on fire, it didn’t stop me from eating. If it anit hot it wasn’t good!

    Dear Diary,

    The day was Sunday and the time was 4-ish in the even. After drooling at exotics at the autoshow, the gang was hungry. Most of us wanted sushi and want it quick. While leaving the convention center, our noses caught wind of sauteed onions and grill hotdogs that lingered in the air. Hard to avoid and hard to resist, we all gathered at one hotdog stand. My sister’s bf got something called a cream cheese hotdog. The rest got the usual polish with sauteed onions. Not seeing what I like, I moved down to another stand. Well…more like a mini bus to be exact. The old Black grandpa in the car was chit chatting with a fellow food vender through the small window. My eyes gazed up and down, left at right at all their offerings. Something unique and different caught my eye. A picture of a hotdog, with two slices of bacon, sliced tomatoes and trail of ranch dressing. The Club, they called it. Why not try one. This could be a great starter for our sushi dinner to come. The taste reminded me of a BLT, but hotdog version. Good, but not so fresh I thought. The bacon and hot dog was reheated. Regardless, I can say I tried one.

    Our excursion for sushi got us to a place that was recommended by my brother. As I past the entry door, I noticed it was one of those revolving sushi deal. Knowing my last experience wasn’t all it was cracked up to be, I made the gang do a U-turn back out the door. Only a few turns and lights later, another eatery caught our attention. Japanese steak house and sushi sounded good for all of us. As we were looking through the menu, we were informed that sushi won’t be available until another hour. Although kinda disappointed, we all decided to stay. Some of the gang have not been through the Japanese steakhouse experience. I’ve been to 5 through out three different cities. My first experience was pretty fun. The chef was entertaining, did cool tricks was socialble. The rest of them, including the one on Sunday was pretty blah. Most of the time they don’t smile and basically mumbled their way through the process. Most of us did the Hibachi steak and chicken. I’ve never left one of these places fully satisfied. The food was good, but not good good per se. Grilled meats and sauteed veggies. What made this concoction “Japanese”? The Japanese taste was also hard to decipher. Maybe this will be my last Japanese steakhouse venture. We’ll see.

    Dear Berry Box,

    The first time I laid eyes on you, I knew I had to have you.

    When you reached the table, it was hard not to immediately devour you. I had to resist and show some constraint (I am a lady after all)! The berries on top were not only deliciously sweet, but abundant. Your drape of white chocolate had a hint of milk chocolate. But the most surprising aspect? When i disrobed you, I found a bed of creamy chocolate mousse! TO_DIE_FOR! Needless to say, I did not want to share you, but felt if I didn’t extend the offer, I would be one selfish biitch.

    Please don’t haunt me by telling me your calorie count, some things are better left unsaid…

    Love,
    Dreamsrey

    Dear Diary,

    Tonight’s dinner plan was to have roast beef with mashed potatoes, steamed veggies and gravy, but…I was stuck watching HOUSE and didn’t cook the food on time. So..when bf got home we just ate last night’s leftover beef with tirk prohok. Added some chrouk spey on the side. Mmm mmm.
    For dessert, we had pineapple pieces mixed with madarin peices topped with whip cream and maple syrup.

    Later that night we had ourselves a snack of whole grain crackers with salami, cucumber, cheese, and tomatoe.
    Maybe Thursday night’s dinner with be roast beef.

    Dear Diary,

    Tried making french toast today. Aldon Brown style. His recipe: cup of half & half, 3 lrg eggs, 2 tablespoons honey (had none subsituted with syrup), 1 tsp salt. Oh, and day old bread, but I used regular bread. It turned out terrible, not because his recipe was bad, but because I burnt them. :( How can I not when I had a small frying pan and put in two slices at once when it only fit one slice. Houy…
    Wasn’t going to take pictures because I was so embarrased, but I thought of a way to cover the burns up. Use what I always use, whip cream and syrup. Hehehe…
    I wanted to use ice cream, but then I was thinking…ice cream for breakfast?
    Lesson learned, don’t attempt to cook french toast again. :D

    Dear Diary,

    I’m calling this entry, The Bosses Cut. Why you might ask? Well, last night’s prime rib dinner was delectable. After downing three delicious Blue Moons, my stomach cried out for something that will quench my hunger. The destination of choice was a familiar gathering. The food and service are wonderful. Adrian the bartender was such a cool guy. I’d ask him for a nice cut of prime rib. He brought out something called the Bosses Cut. Somehow I knew Adrian went the extra mile for this piece. The moment I saw it, it was like Christmas all over again. Such a beautiful cut. I never new a piece of meat could be this eye candy. Medium rare and 3 inch thick high. The crust was perfectly seasoned. The center was warm and tender. I rocked my steak knife slowly and as delicate as possible, not to disturb the juices. The mere act of slicing warmed my senses as I anticipate tasting the tender meat on my tongue. If heaven had a taste, this would be it. Basically, I was on cloud nine. The drink of choice at the time was a dirty vodka Gibson martini. Cool, refreshing, and with the sour I come to like in my martinis.
