Evening folks!

Not much going on around here. Elbow is still about the same. Did some packing, and cleaned what I could.

Dinner was a frozen lasagna.

Anyone have a good recipe for ribs in the crock pot?

Evening everyone.

Dinner tonight was a vegetable and chick pea soup. We had it with low GI bread, which was surprisingly soft and fluffy.

Back to work tomorrow; and we're out to have beer and pizza with the other parents from DS school. Its at an uber-popular microbrewery and I'm actually looking forward to it. I don't drink...but might be tempted to try out the beer tomorrow night.

Have a good day everyone.

Hong Kong Dinner on Day 5

Hong Kong Day 5 Dinner at Eky Banquet

After being rained out at Ocean Park, we headed to Causeway Bay Hong Kong for dinner.

Our restaurant for this night’s dinner.





Eky Banquet is located on the 9th Floor, Windsor House, 311 Gloucester Road, Causeway Bay.





We were in for another Yue style Chinese banquet dinner again tonight.

Gai Lan (Chinese Broccoli) vegetables.





Black Chicken – it is actually the Silkie chicken. They have a blue/black skin and is traditionally used with chinese herbs for ‘tonic’ purposes. Supposedly it helps fight fatigue and enhances bone density.





The Silkie (black) chicken was a double-serve dish. Aside from the meat, we also got the herbal soup.





Garlic Prawns – beautifully cooked.





This was the Special Fried Rice. This rice was a specialty of the restaurant – they do fry the rice. But after it is fried, it is wrapped in lotus leaf with the shrimp and then steamed.





The fried fish and vegetable dish. The sauce was a little bland but every component in the dish was perfectly cooked.





The highlight of this meal was the Lobster noodles. I could have personally done with ginger in the dish but the noodles and lobster were wonderful.





The vegetarian dish – various mushrooms, vegetables and bamboo shoot. Lots of soft textures.





Pork Spare Ribs in a plum/orange sauce. Amazingly delicious and tasty.





Another fish dish; this one in soya sauce. I couldn’t decide if the fish had been steamed or if it had been pan fried.





The freebie house dessert was a bowl of sweet red bean soup (Hung Tau Tsui). The Hong Kong chefs like to add a bit of orange peel to the soup during the cooking process so that there is a bit of orange bitterness to balance the sweetness of this ‘soup’.







Causeway Bay? It's become a fashionable place to shop with the yuppies because of the more up-market and western style shops in the area.



















Despite the fashion malls, you can still find remnants of "old Hong Kong" here.









And neon.

Hope your elbow is feeling better and that your ribs in the crockpot turned out well....so that you can share your recipe here.

PIO- try the beer. I almost never drink any beer but when we go to the microbrewery near our home I will have one of their crafted selections. They are delicious! Well, I like them. Buddy does not. He likes BUD. He did branch out and will have a Bud Lite Lime now My DSIL cringes every time he sees him with one

We went to see Riverdance last night. It was crazy good! WE are talking some really fast feet!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The rest of the family went out to eat but my nutritionist had a fit with me last week so Buddy and I ate at home because I am weak weak weak!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I made a big salad for me topped with chicken salad/ I used Walden Farms mayo. Brussels sprouts on the side. I made a regular chicken salad for Buddy.

Tonight I am a bit up in the air. I have to take his cousin to pick up her gown and I need to steam the Bride's veil (she would wear it like that) and have to clean my dirty house. I think something on the grill and a large salad and steamed veggie.

Morning all. Tons of errands to run today, so dinner tonight will be a simple chicken casserole that I can just throw together and bake for about an hour. Easy and mindless.

Had "the talk" with the twins yesterday. It went better than I thought it would. However, comments they both made really brought home how different they are! I was laughing inside at some of the comments they made! How I love my kids!

Hi my friends,

I didn't mean to drop off of the planet - Sorry. I had payroll and checks to write on Tuesday. When it is payroll week my Tuesdays and Wednesdays are jam packed.

We have been going to our States "Biggest" Rodeo - NebraskaLand Days. We went last night and will go again tonight, Friday and Saturday. We look forward to this all year. Actually there are activities all day for 2 weeks, with a HUGE parade on Saturday and will continue through next Saturday with the Toby Keith concert. North Platte is about 45 minutes East of us. Last night I made sandwiches, chips and a pop for the ride. I don't like to eat rodeo food every night. Probably on Saturday we will eat there for a treat. We are taking Ethan and Liam with us.

Pigletgirl ~ I have a good recipe for ribs in the crockpot. Sorry I didn't see this earlier. If you still want it I will get it for you.

Nancy ~ You're willpower is amazing. I am so proud of you.

PIO ~ wonderful pictures. I have so enjoyed them.

Glynis ~ Kids!!! They truly are what keep us young and on our toes. Glad it went so good.

Kimmar ~ I have to agree with the Black Chicken.


WFDT ~ Subways on the way to the rodeo. Weeeeeeeeee....I can't wait.

Make it a great day!!

Yes, if you are able to do so, I would so appreciate! Baby back ribs were on sale and I would like to use them. I've seen such varying reviews on different recipes, that I'm not even sure which one to use.

Off to bible study tonight! Grilled cheese and whatever else is WFD.

Have a great night.

So I've been MIA for a few days. Less than a week until our audit. This is going to be the biggest test of our relationship. We've been through both of her parents going insane and suffering long and senile deaths, but I think this audit is going to be the biggest test.

Combined with the fact that she just found out that the Auburn Speedster she has been wanting to buy for the past week or more was just sold to someone else, I'm going to have a very moody Fran on my hands. Her wounds are sort of healing, but she keeps having new ones open. I missed Monday's Dr. appt, but that was a good thing because he had to do a debridement that would have sent me reeling. We were supposed to go out to DL for two nights tonight, but she was in too much pain so we skipped that. It's OK, the points we used to book the reservation were in holding so we would have eventually lost them anyways.

I thought we might go out tomorrow to check out some new stuff, but it looks like that won't happen since she is so depressed about not getting the car, but at least I had a nice steak for dinner tonight. She passed on dinner and I just made her a sandwich before going to bed. Hopefully this will all pass and soon we will be happy again. However, I really enjoyed my steak dinner and am not going to let her depression get me down.

Now all we need is to find a piano player for Sunday's rehearsal, we have an ad on Craigslist, but I'm not sure at what point to either cancel the rehearsal or go with the no pianist!
