party of one…

Tonight I was stag for dinner, but no need to feel sorry for me… I made sure to sit back and take advantage of some takeout and gave myself the night off!
An obscene amount of Chinese food was appropriately delivered to my front door… in this brown bag of tricks you ask?? Pan fried dumplings, boneless spareribs, spicy Hunan chicken and a quart of house fried rice! No I did not ingest all of this, however I did put an admirable dent. To wash everything down… a nice bottle of Sauvignon Blanc. Crisp and fruity, offering the perfect balance to the Chinese food.
I have to remember this meal next time I’m on my own for dinner…

a cozy day after!!

So following the day after one of the best weddings I’ve ever attended, I haven’t done much other than drag myself around the house… A large pot of sauce was whipped up as a stomach craving called for it! To sop up this gorgeous sauce was a fantastic loaf of semolina [literally the entire loaf]… then it was back onto the sofa to watch some bad movies and debate on what would be ordered for dinner [that’s how I roll after a night of drinking… FOOD FOOD FOOD]!!
So a quick call, about an hour ago, to the best Chinese restaurant in the area was the perfect decision. A bevy of items were ordered… dumplings, fried rice, boneless spareribs, egg rolls, super spicy sesame chicken and chicken with broccoli would put a dent in the hunger, but unfortunately not enough for leftovers at the later crave that always comes about… why do I see a fat pb&j in the future later [and an hour on the treadmill tomorrow morning]??

takeout and a movie…

Tonight was the perfect night for take-out! I tossed around the idea of pizza or Chinese, and guess what Chinese took first place…
Chicken with broccoli, a super spicy sesame chicken, sweet and smokey boneless ribs, as well as a gratis order of dumplings… A fantastic bottle of wine was the perfect accompaniment to the wonderful flavors each dish offered! Now it’s time to uncork another bottle and perhaps watch a movie!
What better way to enjoy a Friday evening…
