I went out to get Mexican food last night and came home with Chinese.

I realized yesterday that I had not eaten Mexican food in several weeks, so I went to my favorite Mexican place to score a burrito. But it was closed. So was the Deli a couple of doors down. So I went with Chinese food instead. What I got was similar to Kun Pao Chicken (they call it Clay Pot Chicken) and it was really good. With rice, the cost was $20, but I'll get four or five meals out of it. Have you had a hankering for any particular food recently?

Yes, I have a hankering for my pear squares, but too lazy right now to make them!

How do you turn a pear into a square.

Yes, I have been wanting open faced roast beef. Need to check the menu at the bar and see when she is serving that.

@TheHorse I think we do. But the small local bar serves dinner and roast beef is usually on Thursday

Have you had a hankering for any particular food recently? Yes, considering I can't eat anything I REALLY like because it doesn't like me. Damned diabetes.

@TheHorse Occasionally say "The hell with high blood sugar" and eat something I want anyway. Then spend a few days getting my sugar back under control.

Pinto beans and cornbread, which is what we are having for supper tonight. Your Chinese sounds like a lovely meal. Maybe you can get some Mexican today.

Have you read the writings of P.G. Wodehouse? Your staff knows what's good for you better than you do.

@TheHorse I'm still getting to him. I don't usually read new books by new writers the minute they come out. That's another good reason to pay them less and tax them more. I'm not just giving them the Dignity Of Work, I'm also giving them an air of superior knowledge------That's worth way more than money.

We had Chinese on Saturday. It was deee-lish. What is Kun Pao Chicken? Is it spicy?

It's chicken in a slightly sweet sauce with peanuts. It IS slightly spicy!

I often get a craving for something but since I don't really go out now it is too much of a hassle to order and too expensive for me but now and then when it hits I do have to take a short walk to my favorite pizza place for one of their awesome Italian subs, That sandwich I eat for two days at least,
