A Fondue Affair...

Happy Wedding Anniversary to Us...:)

Gordon and I celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary on Sunday. We are excited that we have reached today and are in good spirits..... First years are suppose to be the hardest. We had some tough moments, and I think we have learned a lot from each other through marriage..

To celebrate this special day, we made reservations are La Fondue in Saratoga. This place is always crowded but we managed to get a 4.30pm reservation..(early dinner)

Since it was a special occasion, we went the combination fondue which included:

1. Salad for each person
2. Cheese fondue with bread, fruits, garlic, pickle etc etc
3. 6 kinds of meat (buffalo, elk, duck, venison, ostrich and wild boar)
4. Chocolate fondue with banana, strawberries, mashmallows, grapes, etc etc.

We had a feast. The grilled the meat on our own and ate so much!

Check out the pictures. This is a great romantic place....:) We got to blow candles since we were celebrating our anniversary..........

James and Dai's Wedding... Congrats!

Our dear friend James got married over the weekend. We cannot believe he is now officially married! The wedding was a very beautiful one. They had the wedding just outside of Dai's house. Simple and sweet and they had a harpist and a guy playing the trumpet! I love the harpist..:)

The wedding ceremony was completed with a nice lunch at Dai's house. We had satay, spring rolls, jelly, cherries, strawberries.. all the yummy food! (forgot to take a picture of the food..)

Dinner was celebrated at Koi Palace. This place is super duper crowded during dim-sum and we had never tried the dinner. This was a very good chance, and of course the food was good! The sharks fin were in chunks.. (urm, if my mom is reading this, she would know that a lot of sharks were killed for this dinner)...............We had a great time. Congrats to James and Dai!

Gordon made me dinner...:)

This week, Gordon promised that he would cook dinner. He borrowed a seafood cookbook from our fren Chung.

Monday evening came around and I asked Gordon what he had planned for dinner. His response, "I have not grocery shopped yet".

...... does that mean Lynda has to cook???

So, we looked into the refrigerator and decided that I should make same baked spaghetti since we had frozen meat, pasta sauce, garlic and spaghetti...:)

Tuesday night came around, and we had leftovers of the baked spaghetti..

Wednesday and Gordon made a run to Oakland Chinatown. Which means, he cooked dinner!

Gordon made a delicious dish of "Chinese-style prawns". He made it from scratch and it tasted SO good!

Check out the pictures....

Five minutes later....(literally 5 minutes later)

So very delicious. Since Gordon doesn't really cook too much... I am really proud of him...:) Can't wait for tomorrow! More good food planned!!!
