This will also be Day 4 to my 365 Project.
My sister with my brother-in-law met for a date tonight. We have not gotten together during the holidays because she’s been working day and night and tonight she finally had a day off.
Since our birthdays this month are only three days apart, this date was to celebrate another year, a gift of life and pray that this year we would be equally blessed with good health and enough blessings to live comfortably.
It started snowing again after I have left the house and I was going to ask her if she still wants to continue but knowing how difficult for her to get a day off I just waited for her to change her mind but she didn’t.
Although I have been there before, I myself couldn’t decide. I always want to try something new but we ordered an old favorite of mine for appetizer – the Mexican eggroll, deep-fried but filled with fresh avocado and sun-dried tomatoes dipped in a cilantro sauce. That was my BIL’s favorite.
My sister ordered Cajun pasta and the BIL picked a Thai fusion dish called Bang-bang. After going back and forth with fish tacos and pasta, I ended up getting one of their most popular chicken dishes – Crispy Chicken Costolleta. It was lightly breaded and served with mashed potato and steamed asparagus spears. The whole dish was complimented by a creamy lemon sauce which was enough for the serving, not smothering the dish.
I’ve been telling the sister about their fresh strawberry cheesecake as I was dying to have it again after I tried it at my aunt’s place. I was determined to get one for my sister to take home for her birthday but instead she just wanted a slice. For dessert at the restaurant, just to end our meal, we shared a limoncello cake. It was a perfect ending.
