Fulton’s Crab House in Pink.
Sitting in the traffic leaving Downtown Disney, unexpectedly saw Epcot’s amazing fireworks show, what a bonus for the night!
Stuffed with sauteed sweet onions and bell peppers, garlic, dried raisins, salt & pepper, fresh thyme, wrapped with bacon, then baked to medium rare, cover and rest till it’s well done inside, about 10 minutes. It was an interesting and tasty main course for this year’s Christmas dinner.
Take a look of its inside, how perfect!
One of popular breakfasts in Shanghai, deep fried rice cakes. They were made from sweet rice. I used this type of Norpro Ice Cream Sandwich Maker shaped those rice cakes. It worked really well.
Molded rice cakes before deep fried.

Our friend Peggy made a bunch of Christmas cookies for us, this box of chocolate crackle cookies was one of them. They were rich, chewy, and chocolaty, with a white coating of powdered sugar, what a fabulous treat!
Our Christmas tree for this year. Alan and I spent a whole day to set it up and decorate it. I love Christmas, Christmas trees, Christmas food, Christmas songs, pine scented candles … colors and atmosphere.. warm and homey, the feel is very close to the Chinese New Years I had celebrated with my family when I was growing up.
Pretty and cute… I think it is better looking than this year’s Christmas tree in Disney Epcot, even the one in Epcot is much taller.
Mother killer and her calf airborned! Pictured in SeaWorld, FL. It is also home to Tilikum, the biggest Killer Whale in captivity. He is unbelievable massive and powerful, a majesty creature!
Another killer whale in the show. She gently (even it looked more like an attack) landed her trainer onto the stage.
Killer Whale show is my most, or should I say the only favorite show in SeaWorld. Every time I goes there, I gotta to watch one. Those creatures are just too impressive to miss.
It’s our tradition, homemade Swedish cardamom rolls for Christmas.
