Hello! Good morning!
I’m so glad to see that you guys are as psyched about the Technogel Pillow Giveaway as I am. Just a reminder that the giveaway is open until next Tuesday, so be sure to get those entries in!
Alright, so you all know that I’m always up for a reason to celebrate and get together with friends, right? Well last night we got the chance to do it all over again for our friend Andrea’s birthday!
Her husband, Brook, arranged to have all of us out to dinner at P.F. Chang’s before the two of them arrived so it was a total surprise for her. (I actually almost slipped on yesterday morning’s post, so thank goodness I got my act together and realized it was a surprise. Eek!)
Our group of ten included Brook and Andrea, myself and Jay, Mal and Brian,
It was quite the party!
I started things off with a glass of Chardonnay; it’s funny, actually, because I’m pretty sure my taste for wine is changing. I never used to be a chardonnay gal, but I blame it all on Mal; she got me into a Kendall Jackson Chardonnay which is really, really good.
When it came time to ordering dinner, I was pretty much an absolute wreck. I had absolutely NO idea what I wanted and must have asked the waitress a hundred questions about what she liked, what her favorites were between this and that, and so on. Yeah, I was a real peach.
Eventually, I decided to order the Wonton Soup, which I almost went back on since she said that the only way you could order it was in a big bowl. Well she wasn’t kidding…
The thing was huge! Jay offered to share it with me, but even still, I was able to get about 2-1/2 cups worth of soup…and it tasted absolutely delicious.
In lieu of ordering an entrée, I decided to just go with the soup and their signature appetizer, the Chicken Lettuce Wraps.
The dish included wok-seared minced chicken, mushrooms, green onions, and water chestnuts, and was served over crispy rice sticks. I’d never really ordered a dish like this before but I’m so glad I did. Not only did it have great flavor, but I love how light it was by pairing it with the lettuce cups.
Good food, great wine, awesome company…definitely a great night out!
I opted to sleep in a bit today (my day off, WOOT!) since I haven’t been getting to bed as early as I should these past few nights, so now it’s about time for me to go make some breakfast. Hmmm, what to have, what to have?
Question for the Morning:
Do you ever eat Chinese food? What’s your favorite dish(es)?
Jay and I barely ever eat Chinese food and I’ve actually never ordered Chinese take-out. Is that weird?
