Chinese food. I am just a sucker for it. But to be fair it has been quite a while since our last order. In fact, a couple of months, since I decided to retire. It was not because I retired. It was just that we were taking some cost conserving measures due to inflation. Save where you can. But tonight, we decided we were ready to place an order, and place an order we did. We went nuts as we usually do. Nothing new there. We will have plenty leftover as we usually do. Ordered: Fried wonton (10 pieces) 2 orders of spring rolls (4 pieces) 1 quart of shrimp Lo Mein An order of chicken Mei Fun 1 combination platter of beef with broccoli with pork fried rice and an egg roll. 1 combination platter of orange chicken with pork fried rice and an egg roll. We also got an order of 8 crab Rangoon free with a coupon. All said our order was a little over $57, but with tip and delivery it will be $71. We got most of our Christmas stuff done today, which I will post about tomorrow. And this dinner should be the bomb dot com from our favorite Chinese restaurant in the area, China King. What's going on your dinner table tonight?

Those menu prices - sheesh! Here those items would be a few more dollars than that. We make our version of Chinese at home, but yah, nothing beats restaurant Chinese - sooooo good, right? I think we'll just do a simple lasagna tonight - with salad!

Crab alfredo sounds delicious, and I have not made that in a while. On my list. Happy early Thanksgiving. We will be having ours on the actual day this year, which is almost a first. lol. Usually my sister, who hosts, has to work or something.

My wife will usually alternate between orange chicken and General Tso's, but I swear the last few orders she's taken the orange chicken. Shrimp Lo Mein and beef with broccoli or beef pepper steak are my favorites, and of course I always enjoy the fried rice too. Oh, and the crab Rangoons, and I really like the... Okay...I like it all. lol

I grilled chicken wings and tossed them in a delectable teriyaki sauce, plus baked beans and corn on the cob, with Red Lobster cheddar biscuits as well. Tonight I will be having barbecue baby back ribs, courtesy of a co-worker who has been promising me for a week that she would cook some for me.
