Las Vegas

Back from Vegas and what a great time we had! The weather was hot and humid but the company was wonderful! Because I don't have anything to really post about today, I thought I'd share my daily dairy with you. Try to stay awake while reading:-)

DAY 1

The Triplets pick me up at the airport, after an uneventful and quick flight. We immediately head over to my new favourite buffet line over at Treasure Island. This buffet is really one of the best of the casinos in my opinion. From the oversized eating utensils, to the cloth napkins, from the sushi bar to the soul food counter, I've never been disappointed with this buffet. Here are the dishes I ate:




The orangey-looking stuff are actually awesome beef tamales. Next is saffron rice and seafood stew consisting of scallops, mussels, squid and some type of whitefish. Yum!







This meat was either breaded beef or pork covered in a tomatoey sauce. Because I don't like Italian food, I didn't like this. Oh and vegetables...just 'cause.








And for dessert, two generous scoops of vanilla bean ice cream, a small cherry tart and four of those chocolate balls. I could only eat two of those balls 'cause I don't like chocolate very much and these things are really thick. The ice cream and the tart were awesome!



You may not be able to tell from the pictures, but I don't like my food to touch. That's why there are only two things on the 2nd plate and why the dessert plate separated. The 1st picture looks crowded, but each item is separated. Don't know how long I've been like this but as long as I can remember food has never overlapped. One other thing, I have to eat one thing at a time. No tasting everything together. Once one item is gone then and only then do I go onto the other item.

We ate so much at the buffet we don't feel like having dinner so we sit around snacking, laughing and enjoying each other 'til the wee hours of the morning.

DAY TWO

I'm starving! The girls are still sleep but my stomach is furious with me and she's about to get ugly. I pad to the kitchen in search of something quick and easy but like Old Mother Hubbard's, this cupboard's bare. I make a quick peanut butter sandwich to appease Stomach and watch some mindless t.v.

I don't have cable at home and those few minutes of watching their cable strengthened my resolve to not getting it. I didn't realize there are so many reality shows on cable. I saw a few minutes of "Flipping Houses" and absolutely hate that smug, spoiled, guy. I saw "Girls Next Door" and enjoyed seeing Hugh being played for his money. If he thinks either of those women are w/him for love, he's too far into dementia to realize the truth. I do enjoy the cooking shows but not enough to pay for full cable. Okay, the sandwich's not doing enough to satisfy Stomach so the girls have to get up.

After a stupendously wonderful and filling breakfast of rare steak, hash brown potatoes and pancakes at Blueberry Hill, we head over to Walmart to stock up those empty cupboards. After Walmart a quick nap seems in order.

Three hours later (yeah, the nap was that long) Wilhela takes me to Chinatown behind the Strip for Thai and Chinese food. Now this is Heaven!


This is seafood noodle soup with fishballs, squid, long noodles, scallions and whitefish. I'm getting hungry all over again.


This is curry chicken with zucchini and onion. Completely awesome!


Here's the best of the best: shrimp in lobster sauce. Oh Lord, I'm hungry all over again. I've never done Thai so I hope I can find Thai food like this here at home.

I'm challenging myself to posting at least twice weekly, now that my workload has returned to normal. So you'll be seeing more of me.

I have a friend that eats one food on a plate at a time. He starts with the least favorite, moving to the best.

Wedding of Cana?

First - glad you're back. I miss your posts when you're too busy or when you run away.
Second -My son's ex-girlfriend loved to cook Thai food and made an awesome catfish dish with coconut milk, really good and a sort of omelet type thing to accompany it. I miss her and so does my son, for that matter -not just for the Thai food though.
And Third - no fair showing pictures of food like that. Now, you've got me hungry!

Bee-glad you're posting. Are you resting?

Dave-not Wedding of Cana, more like OCD. I also don't share pens and wash after handling paper money.

Jeni-I'm sorry to make you hungry, especially after having to clean your grandson today:-

I've never had thai food. Imagine that, a sophisticated cat such as myself ;)
