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?

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 :)

Empty Wrapper

Guess what I found from the pile of candies (from halloween)!
missing candy.....only air is inside that plastic wrapper! I remember finding 2 candies in one wrapper..I should start collecting this and sell it on Pawn Stars.

Dinner at La Madeleine

the rotisserie chicken...the rice was very very delicious! wish I could make it at home. What kind of rice do I have to use? I made spanish rice today with long grain rice, but it wasn't like the stuff I eat at Mexican restaurants....a little bummed out :(

french vanilla tart. VERY, VERY good. I had half last night and finished the rest for breakfast!

I finally tried blackberries!! They were very delicious and kinda addictive... I like biting into it and popping the juices...(if you know what I mean)
tell me how you eat your berries!

My Current Obsession

I need my weekly fix of pho with lots of bean sprouts!

This was my favorite childhood drink from au bon pain and recently started drinking it again. For some reason it feels healthier than fanta. Maybe because it comes in a bottle?

Hope this's suppose to diminish all kinds of spots (sorry, freckles are forever...says the box)

Mr. P & Friends

Since its November, and there aren't much "seasonal" fruits, I've been turning to imported fruits.
longan....tastes somewhat similar to lychee, but this one had a weird after taste

my favorite red papaya~ it's an acquired taste but SO good!

I bought blackberries from wholefoods today...first time actually trying it out! Will blog about it later :)

Freaky Friday

More like stupid friday... first I wake up in the morning, open my fridge, and find last night's ice cream...
all melted...
And then I go get some hot chocolate from starbucks, close the lid (so I think) and take a sip thinking to myself "I better not burn my tongue"....and then I feel hotness on my tummy and then my toes. So I look down and see what I have created. Ta-da!
should have done this for halloween with fruit punch...looks like I got shot

and the hot chocolate went through my sneakers onto my socks! GAH!

Diner Food

We recently visited the Silver Diner in front of our house and were pleasantly surprised with the good food they had. At first it seemed a little pricey considering it to be a "diner", but I guess they use good ingredients as they advertise to do.
egg blt with cranberry cole slaw (which I didn't love)

country sampler with pancakes.....the butter was sooooooooooo good (I'm a sucka for butter)

Just wish that the price was a little cheaper...we went for breakfast and the bill came out similar to our dinner at a nice Mexican restaurant!!

Bath time!

I always buy these bath salts and bombs when I visit Japan.
bath salts in purple, green, blue, orange, pink colors

bath bombs in cherry blossom, bamboo and other good stuff!

tried the bamboo today

looks like a BIG icebreaker

LOVE the color and the smell~ I might include this in my first giveaway!
