While adventuring out on the East side of the river, I made a few stops. While in the neighborhood of SE 82nd, I stopped at Fubon. Fubon is a large Asian supermarket. I bought a few things there. The complex also houses various other shops. One of them is Bubble Bubble Tea. Yum! Bubble tea!!

3) In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the eggs, sugar, pumpkin puree and oil. Mix on medium-low speed until blended. With the mixer on low speed, add in the dry ingredients, mixing just until incorporated.
3) Divide the remaining batter among the muffin cups, placing it on top of the cream cheese to cover completely.

I told you recently about my new $3 banh mi sandwich find at Best Baguette. It just so happens, that I found another Vietnamese sandwich shop close-by.
Tan Tan was recommended by a co-worker. It's located in downtown Beaverton, in a very small building. In addition to yummy sandwiches, the also have a nice selection of pho and other entrees.

Nabeyaki udon. It wasn't exactly what I was craving. The nabeyaki udon at Ikenohana is way better. I think it's all in the broth. This one tasted like the premade broth packets. Ikenohana's is made with LOVE. Note to self, don't waste your time ordering nabeyaki udon anywhere but Ikenohana. =0)
Luckily the side of fresh salmon sushi hit the spot. Plus, lots of good omega 3 fatty acids for the week! Score!

I went away for a week and came back to this haul! Yummy! From left to right: Paul Robeson tomatoes, Green Zebra tomatoes, Thai eggplant, 2 pints cherry tomatoes, Oregon Spring tomatoes, Japanese eggplant and Carbon tomatoes.
Dinner was good. My favorite here are the Mahi Mahi Fish and Chips. They are fabulous!! I was so hungry that I forgot to take a photo. I love halibut fish and chips but if you've never tried them with mahi mahi, you're sooo missing out! This recipe is on my list as one of my favorite fish and chips!!
To calm my frazzled nerves, I had this pretty cocktail for $11 (way to go Disney). I got to keep the ice cube in the drink that lights up and changes color.
For lunch I had the cioppino. The broth was good but the serving size was tiny. It came with 1 piece of each seafood. I think it gave me indigestion for the rest of the day. My sister in law had the steak and hers was so overcooked.
Dessert was served family style. The best thing on the plate? The palmful of fresh fruit. The molten lava cake was chalky and not molten at all. It just tasted like undercooked fudge. Eww!!

We stayed to see the World of Color show one night. It was a fabulous light & water show set to music and featuring Disney animation. It was cool! I couldn't get any decent pictures since it was animated. I did, however, manage to snap this pic at the end.
