Last night we went big. We had heard that a local Chinese restaurant called, The Rice King, was the bomb.com and we decided to try it out.
I learned that I am a tiger and billy is an ox (Me 1986 and Billy 1985).
Just what I needed, a place mat to reinstate the fact that Billy is bright, patient and inspiring while I am aggressive and candid (what does that exactly mean…I am too lazy to google it). We also learned that ‘The Sheep’ aka my sister will bring trouble to the ox…..hmmmm.
We started off with potstickers that were amazing. Have you had ponzu sauce? When I used to work at a sushi restaurant I dipped everything I ate into that bowl of goodness including my candy and even took a few straight up shots of that sauce.
Yeah, I don’t know if we ordered enough. I forgot to tell you, this was only one half of the table. My absolute favorite dishes were the Mangolian Beef (SUPER SPICY) and the Lemon Chicken (SUPER FRIED WITH A SUGARY GLAZE).
On one side we had the beautiful Shelly and Danny (billy’s bro and his wife).
And on the other side we have the Billster, me and mis hermana sipping away on our soup.
It was AMAZING, dare I say the best Chinese I have had in a LONG time, and SUPER cheap. Soda was included with the meal and I got me some root beer. I don’t normally drink soda (and quit diet soda for good 2 years ago because it took over my life) but every now and then I need a root beer, especially if it is free.
After a few hours of House Hunters, Extrememe Makeover Home Edition and Cupcake Wars we were ready for more.
Enter in Pazookies. Brownie and chocolate chip cookie. Straight out of the oven with scoops of vanilla ice cream. In all sincerity I will say that this IS my favorite dessert.
And I lived happily ever after.
I didn’t even remember that this picture was taken until I downloaded them on the computer. The only thing on my mind was GET IN MY BELLY NOW!
Bloggers: When writing a post do you WRITE first or PUT UP THE PICTURES FIRST? Do you come up with the post title FIRST or LAST?
-I always put the pictures in the order that I want and then type what I want to say because the pictures are usually more interesting than what I have to say:) Title always comes last and is usually the hardest part for me!
What is your favorite Chinese Dish?
-Kung Pao Chicken or Shrimp and the ones that I listed above.
Any other Tigers or Ox out there?
Rootbeer fan? How about a rootbeer float…when was the last time you had one of those?
