Made this flaky skin style mooncakes quite a few times, this time made the wrap with pork fat and butter, came out lighter and fluffier, the best pastry wrap I made for this type of moon cakes. Truth be told, nothing beats real fat!
Dishes and dessert had with my girlfriend.
Picture clockwise from top: Steamed fish with spicy hot crashed chili peppers, sweet and sour soup, stir fried Korean rice cakes, super messy but super tasty Chocolate ice cream cake.
From Allrecipes.com, cooked 3 lbs of boneless pork ribs in a slow cooker with a can of beef broth for over 4 hours, shredded then heated with a bottle of bbq sauce (baked in 350F oven for about 20 minutes).
Thick, dense buttermilk blueberry pancakes.
Carrot muffins, made from carrots, apple, coconut and pecans. Last picture: my big pot of fish head soup, made with salmon head, bean curd, rice cakes, salami, pig rinds and bunch of vegetables, all mine!
The last day of George & Qiqi’s visit, we went to St.Pete beach (only got into the water for 10 seconds had to ran out because my hair were all standing up, rather not getting striking by lighting than having pictures taken, sorry no hair standing pictures).
Dinner at Stonewood. Delicious food, excellent service.
Had bunch of food, one of them was my favorite deep fried whole fish with sweet and spicy sauce; Fish head hot pot at home (boys had their own cuisine – bbq beef short ribs, they are not adventures enough to enjoy my yummy creation).
Took our friends to the Saturday’s fresh market at Wiregrass mall. It was the first time I saw such colored cauliflowers, at Wiregrass Saturday’s fresh market. The rest of photos: Cinnamon raisin breads, a black lab walking casually in his dog shoes, I want those ones for Shag too!
Heavy rain clouds over the water while we were driving on Route 60 towards St.Pete
Having dim sum; Juicy inside, crispy outside deep fried crab craws; Dinner at home later on.
Alan was making blueberry pie, snacks stray I put together.
Our simple July 4th dinner.
Playing fireworks in the neighborhood.
Me in hot red one piece; My most narcissistic selfie, wearing a pair of Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses.
The beach starts to get crowded near noon time.
Pool time! Dinner: Cheesy pasta bake, steamed belt fish.
