El Hubby Cake's 28th Bday

Assuuuss...El Hubby Cake's turned 28. Assuuuss...

Asus is a made up word. It means Awww....

I asked what he wanted to do for his birthday. He replied, "Nothing! Absolutely nothing". So that's exactly what we did. But I insisted to take him out for lunch. My treat!

I picked Rock N' Fish based on Yelp reviews. It's a seafood bar/restaurant  located on Manhattan Beach. It's located on the strip and is only a block away from the pier so it's hard to miss. The photos on Yelp looked really good so  was quite excited to try it.

Complimentary Sourdough with butter. I just love free bread at restaurants. 

Photobucket
Crab Cakes for appetizer. This is how crab cakes should be, all meat with little breading. So fresh and light.

Kiko's mom had the Seafood Jambalay in Linguini. She loved it and so did I. The sauce was very flavorful and the seafood was very fresh. I will get this next time!

Photobucket
Kiko had the Crusted Mahi-Mahi with spicy mac n cheese and sweet potato fries. Don't be fooled by the photo. The fish looked bigger in person. It was so flaky and meaty and fresh!

Photobucket
My choice was grilled Ahi Tuna with spicy mac n cheese n sweet potato fries. OMG! Again, it's fresh! Definitely something I'll get again. I just wished the mac n cheese was more spicier.

Photobucket
Complimentary Bread Pudding for Kiko. It's a huge portion of bread pudding soaked in a sweet rum sauce. Yum!


Yelp didn't fail me. Rock N' Fish is awesome. We will definitely come back again.

The Best Stuffing Ever!!!

In case you didn't know, I got married this month. Read about it HERE. That explains the lack of post.  I've also been working like a dog and literally have no time to blog. But I'm back. It's my day off today and I'm spending my Saturday night with you!

I hope you all had an awesome Thanksgiving. Mine was nice and calm. I spent it with El hubby cake's family for the first time. El hubby cake's sisters has a tradition where they get together to make the food. They start as early at 5am to prep and cook. Everything came out so delicious, especially the Turkey and Stuffing. It was the best stuffing I ever had!

My beautiful plate. And yes, that's a guacamole on my plate. It is a Mexican household afterall ^_^.

My super yummy Spinach Dip. Making it this time around was much easier and faster. I used my super cool new hand mixer and it mixed the ingredients super quick!

Photobucket
I call this Thanksgiving Guacamole. It looks so pretty on a maple leaf bow.

Photobucket
Nena's Famous Stuffing. Finally, I was able to try it. I've been hearing about it for many years. Well, it defnitely lived up to it's hype because it was bomb!!! It's my first time trying stuffing with gizzards. I like it a lot. I also like the bits of corn bread in it that made it a bit sweet.

Photobucket
Store bought ham.

Photobucket
The19 lb Turkey. They did such a great job in cooking it. It was very moist and tender. Very delicious! It was more than enough to feed all 11 of us, plus just enough leftovers to take home.

Photobucket
For dessert, we had pumpkin pie from Costco and Gaby's homemade jello...I forgot the name. It's a layer of jello, cream and a walnut crust on the bottom. Yum!



That's our Thanksgiving dinner. Thanks for stopping by!
