I am so in the mood for Chinese food right now. Anyone else? Wanna order in?
I love Chinese food. It used to be very affordable. Remember that? I think I do. It's been so long, I'm not sure though. Maybe it's just me. Maybe it's just the place that we order from. I've been spoiled though.
When I was growing up, we had this place called "The Hong Kong Chinese Restaurant" that my parents and I used to go to. It was the best! Now I'm spoiled. I have to have my shrimp fried rice made the right way or that's it for your restaurant. And you only get one shot at it. Don't think I'm going to risk another chance for good Chinese food on a place that puts peas in the rice even when asked not to. Oh no. I won't be burned again. It takes me forever to convince Rat to get Chinese food, so I'm only bettin' on a sure thing! Maybe their prices are higher than usual? Maybe I should step out of my (very) little safety zone and try another place? What do you normally pay for Chinese food?
I've tried making it myself. We won't discuss that. I'm in the process of trying to block it out of my memory.
Yeah, yeah. Enough whining. It's not helping the Chinese food craving I'm having now. I've got to go plant flowers anyway before they die in the little plastic packages that we bought them in.
