tonight was take out chinese from a new place near us.

it was average at best, so we won't be ordering from there anymore.

the spring rolls were very small and overcooked; the chicken in lettuce wraps were ok, but the lettuce could have been more fresh; the grilled steak and shrimp kew was pretty bad. the marinade used for the steak was sour, and didn't fit with the brown sauce used with the shrimp and veggies. it made the meat almost taste as if it was going bad.
the only really decent dish was the veggie lo mein, but that was about it.

dh had a craving for potato leek soup, so that's what we had. For dessert, I ended up falling asleep with the kids at 8pm.

I just bought the kit! I've been thinking of the same thing, and since my garden of tomaotes, basil and garlic is in full bloom, what could go better with it?
