Your Lucky Numbers Are: 3, 6, 14, 18, 23

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.

I'm picky about my Chinese food too. There's a good one down the street and now I'm craving it but I'm too lazy to walk the four blocks to go get some today.

It's better for me I keep telling myself. They say Chinese food is the worst for you.

I do my best to avoid Chinese. My hubby insists on going to authentic places...the kind where the serve beef lung, tripe and pigs feet. Eeewwwww!

Mexican, anyone?

That is true. They say that Chinese food is one of the worst kinds of food that you can eat. I would like to know who "They" are and how I can shut them up ;)

I love Chinese food, and I'm a total snob about it! I've tried most of the places here in the town I moved to to live with John, and they all SUCK! Which is funny, because he thinks most of them are great. YUCK! So yeah, I'm totally picky about it too, and I don't give second chances either! There are 2 yummy places in the town I used to live in, where the kids still go to school, so I grab some from there when I'm craving :-)

I am picky too about mine. We have a lot of chinese restaurants around here and most are affordable but not all are fit to eat at!

If Chinese food is so bad for you, why is the entire nation of China so effing skinny?
