National Chinese Take Out Day Dinner - 11/5/2018

It's National Chinese Take Out Day, but I'm not going to participate. Besides, I thought Christmas was Chinese take out day.

https://foodimentary.com/2016/11/05/...-take-out-day/

Instead, I'll do an in house lemony chicken and asparagus stir fry dinner (which probably isn't really Chinese).

Cold and feeling kinda blah so I put together some teriyaki soba noodles.. Briefly cooked noodles, julienned carrots and cabbage in dashi, drained and tossed in a bit of teriyaki sauce..


Perked me up for apple pie later..

I'm kinda' afraid of Chinese takeout...



I'm on the road, so it was a spicy chicken club sandwich for me, tonight, from the Wendy's next to the hotel.

There is a Waffle House across the street singing to me like Homer's Sirens about breakfast.

WOW!
We have been traveling, again and just a little bit busy of late...
I've been popping in now and again, but not often.

Yesterday I did a Costco trek and they had Marie Callender's
frozen Chicken Pot Pies on sale... DH loves these, so

[thank you Marie]

We'll have a coupla these bad boys served over
steamed White Rice and a small side salad.

Dessert later will be the last of the leftover Halloween candy.

Our Chinese take out day is just about every Saturday. My wife and kids complain, but I love it. Honestly, as long as I get my Hot and Sour soup, Im good.

You serve pot pies over rice? Reminds me of the Filipinos I used to work with years ago. They had rice with every meal. One woman told me that she didn't feel satisfied if she didn't have rice with a meal.

No take-out here tonight. I have a meatloaf in the oven and potatoes boiling on the stove for mashers. I'll also sauté some garden green beans and onions to go alongside.

Ah, GG, so soon you forget...
I am from Hawaii, rice with every meal is a must for us "locals".
Our culture is so "mix-em-up" with the majority of the Pacific Rim and throw in us Portuguese too

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Snacks it's steamed White Rice.

Some folks in Hawaii have converted to what is called
"Hapa Rice" --- half white, half brown rice --- me, I say...
GO FOR IT!!!
[Hapa in Hawaiian is half or part]

You have to be pretty dedicated to your rice to serve a chicken pot pie on top of it.
