My cousin came to visit me yesterday evening.
我表妹今天晚上过来玩了。

She was supposed to come at Sunday, the Halloween.
她本来是准备周日万圣节那天来的。

But she has a shift that she need to go to work on Sunday. So she came over at Friday.
但是她有调班,周日必须要去上班,所以她就周五过来了。

I should cook some food for her. But I'm not very into doing cooking without expectations. (I'm not sure which word I should use here. I want to say if I have a plan like I'll cook on Sunday, then I cook on Sunday. Otherwise I don't cook. )
我本来应该烧点菜招待她。但是我不太喜欢没有计划的下厨。

So we decided to have our dinner at a nearby restaurant which served Northern China cuisine.
所以我们决定去附近的东北菜馆吃晚饭。

Before that, I also bought some my favorite sweet roasted chestnuts.
之前我买了一些我最喜欢的糖炒栗子。

They only sell it from late autumn to early spring every year.
那一家只有每年晚秋到早春才卖栗子。

My favorite Northern China dish is beef & potato stew. Love it!
我最喜欢的东北菜是土豆炖牛肉。大爱!
