Shrimp Alfredo

Shrimp Alfredo

I haven’t made a post about food in a while and I thought I should change that. Tonight I made Shrimp Alfredo. I made the sauce from scratch with freshly grated parmesan cheese. Then I sautéed some shrimp with garlic and tossed in some spinach. I cooked some linguine pasta. Baked some garlic bread and that is it. Pasta night at home in the kitchen. No Olive Garden needed. Also oddly enough I got suckered into buying a pasta maker from tv today. Hopefully that comes soon and I can start making bomb homemade pasta noodles yum.

My Birthday

Today was my birthday and while I couldn’t celebrate with my family like I usually do I still had a good time. I found this restaurant in Annapolis that had Italian food and it was great. There was no one there when I arrived and I sat at the bar area. The bartender was great and very attentive. I got a appetizer, soup, entrée, and desert. I ate everything and left no crumbs lol. For and appetizer I got these baked stuffed oysters with spinach, cheese and bacon. A crab bisque soup. I asked for lobster but it was definitely crab in the bowl so I don’t know really which one it was either way it was great. A seafood pasta entrée with lobster, crab, and shrimp. And then this chocolate mousse type cake with hazelnut ice cream I think( the waiter gave it to me since it was my birthday so I didn’t ask a lot of questions). All in all even though it was a different type of birthday due to COVID I am just happy and blessed to see another year. The restaurant was Osteria 177.

There was literally no one there but me and the waiters for like the first hour lolol.

Mussels & Clams

Mussels & Clams

I once again remembered to take a picture of dinner tonight. My family and I love seafood and recently I have been trying my hand at cooking it myself. I went to Costco last week and I saw some clams which I love so I bought some and cooked it for MYSELF. But ended up sharing it with two others. Therefore I had to go and get some more of course and pick some mussels along the way. So I cooked some more for the THREE of us. It was once again very delicious.

I forgot to add look at this tiny baby mussel that was in the bag. I didn’t know that they could get that small. (PS. Don’t judge my nails. Lolol)

Steak and Shrimp

Steak and Shrimp

I am always cooking dinner and trying new things but I always forget to take a picture. But I actually remembered tonight. I made steak and shrimp with mushrooms and onions. The sides were whole grain rice and quinoa and fresh spinach. P.S don’t mind the paper plate I hate washing delicious. Am I the only one?(It was very delicious btw)

December 9 2020: My sister and I went to the mall. We went into the Uggs store and there was this jingle playing, “Uggs, Uggs, Uggs for days, how many can I buy.” There was this person that had a whitening device for your skin. It helped you skin to look brighter and whiter. It was in this spray fumigator type contraption. I didn’t get it done but people around me was getting it done. There was a guy from elementary school named Steve that was around me and he kept touching me. Then he burped and a little bit of it got into my mouth and I was so mad and disgusted. There was a youtuber who appeared. I was in school again and didn’t graduate for another couple months. My manager in real life was my teacher in the dream and asked me a question on a year. The answer was 1928. I dreamed about Shinee and they had replaced one of the members with Cole Sprouse. Jackie and I were out driving and we went to get lunch at this potbelly. We didn’t know what we wanted, so the man said that there is a nearby Wendy’s you can go too along with a carry out nearby you can also check out. We ended up going to a Shopper’s and inside was this section of old ladies who were selling pickled goods. I got some pickled eggs and it turned out later on that my father had gotten pickled turkey legs. Now the thing was these ladies were dead people and if you didn’t eat the food you purchased in time you would switch lives with them. So I had to hurry up and eat a whole contain on pickled eggs and then make sure my father ate all his turkey legs.

$12 Tip?

So today I was at work and I had a strong craving for some eggrolls. Now I had been wanting some for the last couple of days and I decided to Google some places around my job to get some. Now the only place I could find was a few minutes walk away and they had 6 mini shrimp egg rolls for $6.50. Now I get to this establishment and there was a takeout window, where they were not even letting you inside and and you had to stand outside in the freezing cold and pick up your order. Then I get the receipt and it was $7 some change. I use my card and there was a 15% tip box that I checked and all together it was $8 some change. Now I get back to my job and is very much disappointed in the egg rolls I see. Now I know it was mini egg rolls but this was honestly so small about the size of my pinky finger and needless to say was gone in a couples seconds. Anyway I was telling one of my customers about the experience and just chatting it up. Then at the end of the transaction he gives me $12 and is like this is for your lunch so you can get something different tomorrow. Now here where the problem comes in, I am at a bank and under no circumstances are we allowed to take cash gifts from customers (especially right in view of camera). So I try to tell him I can’t take it and he of course shakes his head and walks away. Now usually when these situations occurs (it has happened to me a few times working at the bank)I just re deposit it back into the clients account. He did not have an account and so I basically ended up having to give it to the bank in essence. Therefore this brought on a bittersweet feeling, but alas working at the bank if I don’t have my integrity, what else do I have? Moral of the story if you want to tip the bankers give them a gift card. Or buy the actual food😪😪

Oki Bowl

I went to a new restaurant today called Oki bowl for lunch. I order some octopus legs and a Tomyum bowl. They sold ramen and rice bowls. It was very delicious. The noodles was immaculate. It had these nice big prawns in there already and I order some pork belly on top. The broth was nice and hot and there was a lot in the bowl. I had it for lunch and was so full I didn’t eat dinner. They also packed the noodles and broth separately which was great so nothing got soggy or swollen. I have eaten calamari before and like that, but octopus is a little different I guess it was very chewy which I don’t mind but it was not a lot in the dish. I ordered it as takeout. It was very much a hole in the wall type restaurant. Also I wonder about parking(I walked there from somewhere else)

November 16 2020: ” I don’t wanna cry baby, even though I should. I don’t wanna hurt baby.” Lyrics that were in my dream. I was at the grocery store again buying food and I left my purse in my basket and then lost the basket. The line was extremely long with only one cashier but my mom was there and had a spot right up front.

November 15 2020: Had another dream about an alternate universe where we would enter games online. This particular game was a zombie one and each person was a different character of course and you basically had to run from the zombies or defeat them. But you only had one life so if you died you wouldn’t comeback on the game. I dreamed about Future saying his mom makes great food and to forward everyone on the team the video of her cooking. Then I also dreamt about me yelling at my dad and telling him all the hurtful things he did to me over the years.

November 14 2020: I dreamt about meat patties in Shoppers. In particular steak and cheese patties. Then I opened a smoothie place. I met a guy from the military. I was in the bathroom sitting on a toilet with a guy. I went to someone’s yard it was really big and they had cows, squirrels, and lots of the birds. Then the squirrels started to throw nuts at me and chase me. I went to Sally’s Beauty Supply and they told me that I go to a lot of Sally’s. My sister changed the furniture arrangement in the living room. Then she tested me for Covid by sending a strand of my hair to a lab and they said I have it. Then it ended with Kenichi the Mightiest Disciple and a shooter came into a classroom to kill one person in particular but we were able to wrestle the gun from him so he could not hurt anyone.
