Last week started off with doughnuts.
Homemade doughnuts that my mom made, from a recipe she found on Fridgg.
They were wonderful. ^_^
Monday was my mom’s birthday! All three of us kids took her out for Mexican food at her favorite local Mexican restaurant.
I had fish tacos (meh) and enchilada soup (so good).
Son got our usual go-to order of sweet and spicy shrimp.
Normally I work from home, but Wednesday I had to be out, and I realized last-minute that I needed something for lunch.
Long story short, I’m now kind of obsessed with those new Starbucks Thai peanut chicken wraps. I wasn’t expecting much (because refrigerator case food? … bleh.), but these are actually really freaking delicious.
Happened to be in the area, so we stopped by Padua Pasta Makers, which I’ve been wanting to try since they opened. The antipasta salad was delicious! Definitely want to try some of their fresh pastas one of these days.
Son’s dad wanted to go try a snail place in Little Saigon, so we headed down there yesterday.
Yes, you heard me right, SNAILS.
They’re cooked in a coconut broth, and they’re SO GOOD.
That is, if you can get them out of their damn shells.
I was kind of obsessed with the grilled squid.
The grilled scallops were good, too.
Ginormous peppery snails.
Of course, being in Little Saigon, we had to go get all the other good Vietnamese foods we can’t get elsewhere… so of course we bought banh mi, chicken curry, and plenty of tropical fruits (jackfruit! durian!).
Have a wonderful week!
