Every couple of weeks or so, Sir Beads and I enjoy having a quick supper of take-out Chinese food. Usually, it’s on a night when we’ve had an especially busy day.
Growing up in a big city, I learned to love many different ethnic foods at an early age. I remember, when I was about six years old, that there was a Chinese man in our neighborhood supermarket who had his own booth on a raised platform in the middle of the store! (This was long before deli departments.) I used to be absolutely fascinated by the delicious aromas emanating from the twenty or so steaming pots that he tended. Some weeks, while doing her weekly food shopping, my mother would buy several different items from him. After shopping, lugging the groceries home, and then putting them away, it must have seemed like a nice break for her to have dinner already cooked that night.
The other day, we had take-out here! 🙂
Of course the fortune cookie is a big deal – no matter how old you get! 😉
I thought it would be fun if I opened it with YOU!
I think we got a very good one, don’t you agree? 😀
