Eating with Friends!

Finally! I was able to take Jing to El Chupacabra!

We each had Carne Asada.....

And we split an order of Camarones ala Diabla!

OMG!!! It was extremely spicy! I thought the orange sauce was cheese but it was not! After two forkfuls, we felt our lips " bloomed" like Angelina Jolie's!


I baked Double Chocolate Chips for my friends who live nearby.

Cat and her daughters, Kim and Dre had an after dinner snack with me. They enjoyed the Chewey Double Chocolate Chip Cookies!
