Chinese Take-Out

We had planned to have burgers for dinner tonight, but I forgot to take the ground beef out of the freezer. Since it's the day before Thanksgiving we decided to treat ourselves to Chinese take-out and the quintessential Thanksgiving movie, "Planes, Trains and Automobiles."

SP asked for extra noodles:



... and they gave us three bags, plus extra duck sauce for dipping. We also got two egg rolls:



... which were nice and crispy, filled with cabbage and ground pork. I wanted hot and sour soup:



... with the huge pieces of mushroom and tofu. SP isn't a fan, so he got wonton soup:



... which was full of large, meaty wontons. We also got our old standby, roast pork egg foo yung:



... The greasy omelet smothered in rich, brown gravy really hit the spot. We didn't want any leftovers since tomorrow is Thanksgiving, so we ordered light. It was just enough food to satisfy our craving.
Pin It!

  3. We have this ridiculous tradtion of watching holiday themed movies while stuffing ourselves with salty goodness. Before PT&A it was Grumpy Old Men. :) I was unoriginal, I get the same thing - Wonton soup and plain lo mein noodles. M Laz had orange chicken.
    My Thanksgiving was great! We showed our proofs to my in laws and my MIL cooked a feast! It was so yummy. How was yours sweetie?

  4. I like that tradition! :P

    Glad to hear you had a good holiday. Ours was really fun. We had some exchange students over and they were a hoot. And the food was amazing, as always.
