Last night was Chinese takeout night here.

I started with Hot & Sour Soup, which our little shopping center takeout place makes VERY hot & VERY sour - just the way I like it. I followed that with another searingly spicy favorite dish - "Singapore Chow Fun" - which, instead of the usual flat chow fun noodles, is technically Angel Hair pasta combined with bits of vegetables, chicken, roast pork, & shrimp flavored with blazing-hot tumeric curry.

Husband had wanted "Bean Curd Szechuan-Style", but they were "out of bean curd"??!!??? First time I've ever had a Chinese restaurant say that!! So, he just had a Chinese mixed vegetable dish.

It's a small thin pasta..I like to mix it with rice, brown the two and then add sauteed onion and garlic and chicken broth, cover and cook..Great with grilled meat or enchiladas...

The local VFD was having a taco feed as a fundraiser, so I met family and friends for dinner and supported our local volunteer firefighters.
