I have a weak spot for Chinese food.
There, I said it.
So when I get two weekdays off in a row from the store, and my dear wife Karen is working at SMG, well …
The allure of Chinese for lunch is pretty darn strong.
Last week, I had a 10:30 a.m. vanity appointment at my great friend Theresa’s shop. After my hair had been clipped and my beard had been buzzed, hey, I thought, it’s nearly lunch time. And I’m just down the road from China Chen. As I pulled out my iPhone 6 to call, hey, I thought, I have tomorrow off, too. I can order enough for two lunches.
Yeah, I did. Quart of wonton soup. One barbecued sparerib combo, with pork egg roll and fried rice. One extra egg roll. One pint of pork lo mein. One pint of pepper steak.
What a two-lunch feast I had. Ellie B aka Dogamous got a little bit each day, including the picked-over bones.
What’s your biggest takeout food weakness? What’s your favorite lunch of all? What might you order super-sized for two lunches in a row?
