Cajun food @ Razzoo's

Hubs finally brought me to watched Tangled 3D! I love watching Disney Cartoon, and surprisingly I loves all the songs in the show!! I think so far, Rapunzel is the prettiest and most adorable princess, hahaha ~

Anyway after the movie hubs, brought me to have Cajun food which is right next to Cinemark! It was a new very colourful designed restaurant, and each time we passed by, I would tell hubs, we have to try this Razzoo's Cajun Cafe. Finally ...

My verdict; I love Cajun food, compare to Mexican food! Portion is smaller and it is saltish, and not as cheesy and beany as typical Mexican food!!
Their menu with alot of crocodile cartoon, and I thought they would offer Crocodile meat, hahaha! They have lunch menu special, @ USD7.99 each.
My Prawn and rice combo. A just nice portion with rice, and my favourite Garlic Bread, should have ordered a Cajun Gumbo soup as well right!
Hubs' Pecan Catfish; equally yummmmy! I would have ordered Pecan Fish but Hubs 'chopped' it first, and the rest of the menu are either Chicken's breast or Prawns!
Love the food! Me and hubs finished everything on our plate, and left feeling very satisfied ...
Decor is nice too without the Bear's or Deer's head!
This is more like a Seafood restaurant ...
Not much people in the restaurant, but I foresee myself coming back for MORE!
I am becoming more experimentive with FOOD; that is good news for Hubs!

Indonesian Walnut Butter Cake

Finally I did it again using the recipe from, Mybakingcottage.blogspot.com.

It was a big mess, I didn't have enough butter thus I have about 15gram less butter!
Anyway, I still manage to get myself till this almost last step!
Now I just have to tolerate the AROMATIC Butter smell for 1 hour before I know whether it is successful or not, and looking at the bloom of the cake, it is looking GOOD!
Woah, not too bad huh ...
Yummmmy, I used the Chocolate chips for cookies, so it the chocolate are in one big chunks! And I still didn't achieve the buttery taste, but then it is so much tastier than the previous Walnut cake recipe that I tried. Just after the first night, we have finish like 1/3 of the cake! So this is a SUCCESS huh! Next time I shall add LESS flour and MORE BUTTER!
成功!

Ingredients:
250g Butter
200g sugar (I reduced to 150g)
4 eggs, separated
200g Plain/cake flour
4g baking powder
30g chocolate chips
150g walnuts
vanilla essence (optional)

Method:
Prepare and line a 9-inch cake pan.

Chop walnuts and lightly toast in an oven for about 5 minutes. Be careful not to over toast it.

Sift flour and baking powder. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, cream slightly softened butter with half of the sugar (in my case 75g) using an electric beater until light and fluffy.

Add egg yolks, one by one and cream and cream till well mixed.
Add in flour mixture slowly (You may use a wooden spoon manually or if you are using an electric beater, to use low speed). Set aside.

In another mixing bowl, beat egg whites using an electric beater. Add the other half of the sugar slowly and continue beating until the egg white reaches stiff peaks (When you lift the beater, the tip droop slightly, and beaten egg whites becomes stiff and shiny).

Add toasted nuts and chocolate chips into the cake batter.

Fold in beaten egg whites into the cake batter, in two to three additona, until egg whites is well-incorporated into the batter.

Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven at 160C for about 50 minutes to one hour.

Oakley Women's Correspondent Polarized Sunglasses

Finally I get to use the Oakley Women's Correspondent Polarized Sunglasses.
The extra $$ paid for the polarized lens is quite worth the money; the eyes is really comfortable and the Lens view is very LIVE. First time wearing a 'Good' Quality Sunglass not just for the 'Design' of the Sunglass.

Hubs mentioned these are 'Snow' Boarding sunglasses and with my Snow Boarding Merell Outerwear, I look like a Snow Boarder BUT THEN I KNOW NUTS about snowboarding hahaha!

Soup : Garlicky Mushroom Soup
Salad : Chopped Tomatoes with Mozarella cheese and Cilantro

Hubs chased me out of the kitchen but of course, I have to help!
Before helping, I take some time to do myself up for the 'special' meal at home!
We marinated the chops overnight with Balsamic Vinegar and sugar.

Cotton Patch Cafe

We didn't plan to eat out tonight but since we still have 2 hours to waste before fetching Toto, hubs decide to eat out. Yeah, and we choose COTTON PATCH CAFE. TOday is 23rd, and the whole of Frisco-Stonebriar area are PACK with cars and human-beings! SO MANY last minute shopper! Terrible, maybe all are waiting for last minute deals!
First dish, Plain Bread cannot make it, just normal Buns ...
The restaurant was rather PACKed, alot of the diners are FULL family with their grandparents!
Chubby me san make up and with glasses!
I am so lazy recently, my make up must be growing mushrooms and spiderwebs!
This time round we decide to order ONE Appetiser and ONE Main dish instead of 2 main dishes!
Our appetiser, Jumbo Crispy ’Shrooms; it was ALOT! Next time we should order the 'HALF' portion! It was YUMMY, I wonder why it is not the recommended dish?
Grilled Cajun Duo (with crawfish cream sauce); As Cajun as it gets. Blackened tilapia filet seasoned with Cajun seasonings and 8 grilled shrimp. Topped with our own crawfish cream sauce. Served on a bed of rice. 'ICIBAN'! Really yummmy!


I wonder why people come to Cotton Patch but I understand now. They offer smaller portion, and the food they offer is not too bad with the price offered! TOtally love the shrooms and Grilled Cajun Duo! If not for the yucky bread, I will give it a 10/10 and will totally visit again for days that I don't cook!

But then again I think I will definitely go again!

冬至 (Winter Solstice) 2010!

Every year without fail, my mother would prepare 汤圆 for 冬至 (Winter Solstice), and of course I would take all these for granted. Now without all my friends posting on Facebook regarding their  Mommy's 汤圆, I wouldn't even register that the Ang Moh 'Winter Solstice' is our Chinese 冬至. With all the Tang Yuan pictures on Facebook,  I couldn't help but wish I am also having some tang yuan in this cold cold weather. So we drove 20minutes to Hmart and gotten ourselves some Ready made Tangyuan in Sesame seed, Peanut and Red bean paste.

Another 20 minute later, we have 汤圆 ...
Mommy always say after eating Tang Yuan, it means we are one year older ...

Our Christmas Gift for each other ...

Our Christmas gifts are here ...
This is hub Adidas Sunglass, the quality looks good!
And it is made in AUSTRIA ...

My Oakley comes with the BOX and Casing. If I remember correctly, I think the Oakley that we get from Outlet doesn't comes with the Casing. I think we have to top up another USD10 or USD20 bucks to get the hard casing!! And my order came with this Chio White Casing, plus the white Cloth Embossed with Oakley Logo casing as well.



I thought this will be made in China, surprisingly it is Made in USA!
Polarized is usually about USD30-USD40 bucks more expensive with the normal lens. And with the discount it is about USD15.00 more expensive; so hub indulged me!
The word 'Polarized' is carved into the lens??!!

P/S : I not working, actually Hub pays ALL la!
