My family lives on two different continents. My father lives and works in Taipei, my mother lives and works in Washington, DC and my sister goes to school in Pittsburgh. Now that I'm moving to Germany our family will be spread out on three continents!
So it was truly a rare treat that my entire family came to San Antonio to visit me! :)
The 3 lovebugs are so excited! hahaha
When my family visited...
is it weird that my dogs like flaming cheetos?!
and ate some more!
|3 types of butter - cilantro butter, creamy rich butter and goat cheese butter|
The cilantro butter was really unusual but I really loved it it was like almost a clean, fragrant butter and the regular butter in the middle was SUPER soft, creamy and rich.
|Duck confit w/ spatzle|
This was my dish and it was CRAZY GOOD!!! I'm always a big fan of duck whenever I see it on a menu especially when it's confit. It's basically braised until the duck is essentially falling apart but the skin is SO CRISPY!! *DROOL* seriously I'm drooling as I'm typing this hahaha.
|Fried Quail w/ spinach salad|
|GINORMOUS ribeye and fries|
Texas really does everything bigger I have never seen such a crazy gigantic piece of ribeye before! The steak had this really great char grill on the outside something that they don't really do in San Francisco so I was pretty surprised when I bit into it but it was DELICIOUS!
|Fresh blueberry cheesecake and crust|
This was crazy good. I'm not normally a big fan of cheesecake because it's so rich and dense. But I was really surprised by this cheesecake it was light and almost tasted like a whipped cheesecake/whip cream! LOVE! The cheesecake crust also had a delicious homemade crushed gingersnap cookie. It was crazy delicious!
Thanks for visiting me, Lucas and the doggies! :)
<3 you guys!
