We were joking on Saturday that we were having Christmas in July. Why you ask? We decided to go to dinner at the Chinese restaurant where we always go on Christmas, Sakana Oriental. It wasn’t for any reason other than that Jim was visiting from Washington and we all like this place.
I have a very selfish and particular reason why I like it.
Vegetarian Hot and Sour Soup!! This is so tasty. Most Chinese restaurants offer hot and sour, but most of them use meat in their recipe. At Sakana Oriental they do not! I love it!
I have to confess, as if you, my dear readers don’t already know this, I am a creature of habit.
I usually order their eggplant in garlic sauce and I request to have tofu added. It is just delicious. Unfortunately I forgot to ask for brown rice and I got the white. It still all tasted delicious! I ended up bringing home some leftovers.
We had a relaxing enjoyable meal in the wonderful cool dining room. They weren’t very busy at the time and it was like we had the whole place to ourselves.
We declined dessert at the restaurant because we were looking forward to Ice Cream!!
Black raspberry…Again! It’s so sweet and tangy at the same time. I was good and only had a small!
Got my 2 mile walk in on Sunday morning again. Thank goodness it’s somewhat cooler than it was on Saturday. It felt good. I’m really getting the hang of this walking thing.
At lunch time though, I was starting to fantasize about my leftovers from Saturday night’s dinner. Thought I try something with them
I chopped up some Romaine lettuce, microwaved my leftovers and Ta-Da!
I can’t tell you how good this tasted! Served up in my wonderful FREE bowl I got at the rummage sale last month! It’s bigger than it appears in the photo. About the size of a large soup bowl. It was just perfect for this lunch.
Then it was on to some serious work to on my reading. I’m reading Specials by Scott Westerfeld, third in a series.
I can’t wait to find out what happens!
Hope it continues to cool off as the weather people are saying!! Can’t wait for that!
