Toys for Tots

This year we decided to give a toy to toys for tots! Thought the Buzz Lightyear Mr. Potato would be loved :)
This makes me want to go back to Disney World...Woody Roundup!

Last night we had lobster bake at legal sea foods! But forgot to bring Mr. P along...
I took the pic as soon as our waiter took off the aluminum foil. Look at the steam! It fogged up my lens! My favorite part of the lobster is its claws. My significant other prefers the lobster tail....we are a match made in heaven!
By the way, my favorite seafood soup is now the Maryland Cream of Crab soup (something like it). You gotta try it (Daisy)!

Apple Crisp Pie

Don't judge by the looks...this pie was amazing. This was one of the first pies I made, and I thought I wasn't a crust person (that's why I only pinched a little), but boy was it buttery and delicious! Next pie, you know how big my crust will be ; )

Custom Burger

We recently went to a custom burger shop. Chili fries...looks delicious, but I hate it how the fries under the chili and toppings get soggy. The presentation is wonderful and all, but I'd rather have my french fries crisp!

2/3 lb burger ...the patty is so big! can't imagine what a 1lb would look like.

Sweet Treat

We got the dulce de leche caramel dazzler.....Don't get it! They put too much caramel. But the banana was delicious! And of course the ice cream was heaven...

Big Bowl

We had lunch at the Big Bowl. I had the pad thai with extra sauce (as it is bland without it).

the best ginger ale! this drink had real ginger in it, so people who don't like ginger would probably cringe...I used to hate ginger as a kid but growing up it's one of my favorite! especially with dim sum and sushi :)

Midnight Madness

This was the first time I attended midnight madness at a local mall and I was SHOCKED! So many people waiting in line for the stores to open......we ended up going home and came back in the morning. No wonder it's called midnight MADness!
This was the line to the Disney Store. Amazing!

People were buying stuff at stores that weren't even on sale. Mr. P is very confused...

domi-NO NO NO!

On friday night we ordered dominos and it was BAD! terrible...horrendous!
pre-bite. getting all excited with mr. p in the background

I ordered the chicken habanero oven baked sandwich. I had this 4 times before and it tastes like heaven....but on friday night it tasted like....chicken breasts on rubber. the bread wasn't toasted properly and the guy who made my sandwich forgot the habanero sauce!!! It's like forgetting cheese on a cheese pizza!

And our pizza had no crust to hold on to....we had to use a fork and knife to eat pizza! what a nightmare!!

Ok, so the reason why I posted this up was to ask you guys if you feel the same way : After we found out that there was no habanero sauce in the sandwich, we were wondering if we should call the shop again and ask for some sauce. But then I also felt like they would spit or do something dirty on our next order. This is why I always end up never getting what I want! Am I being paranoid?

Bye Bye Pineapple

Dear kitchen flavours ... this is a picture of the final days of my pineapple. Maybe I will cook something out of it!

Making Pumpkin Pie

I made pumpkin pie for the very first time!
I never really liked baking because I don't want to know how much butter, sugar, shortening goes into the stuff I eat...that would just be too cruel! Let a (wo)man enjoy his dessert!

mixing the flour, sugar and salt

rolled the pie crust into a ball

shaped it into a crust (minus the edges)

I don't have a blender so I had to do it the classic way.

GAH!! Look at all the lumps!!

somewhat got it under control and poured it into the crust

Ta-Da!! Very delicious! Thanks to Paula Deen!

 I went to Chick-Fil-A for the very first time and I loved it! Just wish that the name was Chick-A-Fil..cheeck ah much easier to call, don't you think?? I got the spicy chicken with pepper jack cheese and a large strawberry milkshake.
The strawberry milkshake was amazing! I think it was even better than Johnny Rockets...maybe because of the chunks of stwabehwees :)
