After my sister's visit and the holidays, Jeff and I decided to take a break from eating out for at least a few weeks. I said a few weeks because with Christmas around the corner, I am sure where will be invitations to go out with other couples for a get together prior to the holidays, etc. truthfully, I am not into Christmas this year and therefore shopping for gifts will be difficult. Sorry, I got side tracked there. Here are the photos of foods we have tried for the last couple of weeks.
|Pastrami sandwich from Max's in Redwood City, Ca. I thought this was the Max's from Manila, wrong. I have never been served with a sandrwich that was cut in several pieces. Very cute.|
|Chicken Kabobs from the House of Kabobs in Sunnyvale, CA. The chicken was so tender and moist and I love those red type of berries. I can't remember the name but this rice dish was so great with chicken.|
|Pork BBQ from the Ohana Hawaiian BBQ in Milpitas, CA. It was a bit fatty but the flavor was similar to the Filipino BBQ.|
|Chicken Fried Steak at Margaret's Cafe in Jackson Rancheria Casino and resort. Can you believe this is for one order. My sister and I shared this plate and we did not finish it.|
As you can see from all these photos, this is the reason why we have to stay away from eating out. Jeff and I will have return to normal schedule and eat home cooked meals. Last night I made a light turkey rice vegetable soup. We each had a bowl and one hawaiian bun with melted cheese.
