Working full-time does cut back one’s desire to put much effort into housework, meal planning and cooking.
After grocery shopping Saturday, I suggested that we go out for Chinese food. Joel first chose Khindo in Uptown,
then he decided that we hadn’t been to Dragon House in Columbia Heights in a while. As we walked out of the
apartment building, he asked if I wouldn’t mind if we went to C-1 Buffet since it was close and we could drop off
some materials that we had borrowed from the libary just across the street from the restaurant.
So, we spent $10.50 each on too much food. Most of the options were chicken based: orange chicken, pineapple chicken, teriaki chicken, roast chicken, sweet & sour chicken…They had sea food too, but sushi was the only fishy thing that I chose to place on my plate. Spearing a "crystal dumpling" was the most courageous act that I preformed that evening. I was pleased to find a sweet coconut flavor to the gelatinous ball, rather than that of egg or fish.
We passed up on the Mongolian barbeque.
Actually, Mongolian Beef was already on my menu for the next day. As you can see, that is what we had for lunch on Sunday.
Joel said that I shouldn’t show the whole world that I paired bread with Chinese food…
