American Risoles

It is called american risoles because the filling was modified to american taste. The taste is like asian style ham and cheese breakfast sandwich. Steve can eat this as a meal like 10 pieces, lol... and eat them with hot peppers like I do. He brought some to work and his friends were crazy about it and wanted the recipe. One said to me, wita will you marry us? lol...

I'm not an alien

Not much to say, i'm no longer an alien in this country. After 11 years dealing with "you know who", today I feel like I have won the battle, yup..that's why I got the flag! It was a beautiful ceremony, Steve and my mom in law were with me. I was glad I had the wheelchair today becoz it's a big building. But... elevator was out of order! so Steve had to carry me on the stairs, long stairs. After ceremony, we went back to town and had lunch at Bartucci. I ordered Linguini Primavera to be my first meal as an american, and ate em all, nothing left, yes I overate, just try to fit american way of eating...hahaha. The pictures above are not great, I just want to have them for the proof. This is a blessing from the Lord, He has granted me more power and freedom to live in this country. God bless America.

Macadamia Nut Cookies

Steve made these for us. Nothing special about it, but when they are baked in the oven, hhhmm... the smell of the butter soooo delicious, like you are in a cookie shop in downtown Paris... so fresh. No recipe, just made of Betty Crocker's sugar cookie dough and plenty of macadamia nuts.
