April 23, 2011 to April 29,2011 | Goal 110 lb. by June 5, 2011 (Vacation week)
A challenging week as we vacation in DC, PA and GA during spring break. Each day, I watch what I eat, obviously small portion and try to have lots of fruits and vegetable. We went to Longwood Garden in PA and took lots of great pictures as well as video.
Here is our road trip:
April 23, 2011 late afternoon after moved my office to the new space within the same building. We drove up to TC’s mom’s house. At April 24, 2011 noon, we arrived on time for the Chinese Dim sums in Maryland. We waited for about 45 min. for our table it was worth the wait. TC’s brother’s family dined with us too with full room of people who want some authentic Chinese Dim Sums. I ate one of the small dish and mostly non-rice related. It’s delicious just hard to control the portion since we drove 7 hours to eat this.
April 25, 2011, we went to famous Longwood Garden in PA. On the road we had Taiwanese-style bakery for breakfast and lunch. We bought it at Bread Corner, Inc. over at Rockville, MD. They are freshly baked. I had one for breakfast, one for lunch, of course TC and Dr. Yen both had two for each meal. It taste GREAT!
I saved my favorite moon cake for breakfast next morning. It has duck york inside and wrap with layers of crescent like skins and sweet desert red bean paste. I don’t know the calories, guessing about 300 for such a small desert.
Here are couple more Taiwanese Favorite comfort food:
As you can imaging that we just simply can’t leave Maryland without tasting these traditional Taiwanese comfort food.
On April 26, 2011, I had to stop by VA for a business meeting, in that afternoon, we went for our favorite Crab Cake at Faidley Seafood World Famous Lexington Market. It is all lump of crabs, mixed with mayo, muster, bread, fried then microwave heated cake. It’s from the heavy if you have not taste it. If you like crab, you don’t want to miss this when visiting Baltimore, Maryland. It’s about $13 or so of the all lump, but it’s worth it. I know it’s about 200 or so calories.
We had to detour back to NC for TC to attend a mandatory class at work on April 27, 2011. Again in the 7-hour drive, we had Taiwanese-style bakery for breakfast and lunch, it is so convenience.
I can’t wait for our next trip up to Maryland to taste these wonderful Taiwanese delights!
