Chinese Food, Great Company and Fortunes

Last night I was able to get out and enjoy a yummy Chinese dinner with great company. I laughed so hard I cried after enjoying a yummy meal of Shrimp with Garlic Sauce, crab ragoons, beef terryaki and Mt Dew.

Garlic Shrimp and Chinese Restaurant

I could not even finish that plate of food, this Chinese place was not a normal place I frequented but it was delicious and their prices were decent. Once I saw their portion sizes I was even more impressed with their prices. I sat and had dinner and then the Mt Dew hit me. I couldn’t stay still, I was wiggling my legs and I was jumping and it was so bad that I was told I couldn’t drive home for I would scare the tween girl who was with us. I laughed because it reminded me of the time I had tons of Mt Dew one night years back while being the designated driver, my sister swore I was acting drunk and I had only had Mt Dew.

Fortune Cookies at Chinese Restaurant

One of my favorite parts of eating at a Chinese Restaurant is the fortune cookies, so I took all four of our fortune cookies and took a cute picture of them. I also shared on Instagram each individual cookie fortune. It is so funny to read fortunes and realize just how vague they truly are!

I had a lovely time and it was nice to get out and mingle with people over a good meal. I think I should do it more often.

English Muffin Pizzas

Before I went grocery shopping last week I decided to go through my cupboard and see what I could find down there. Not only did I realize I have like three jars of salsa {can we say prepared for nachos?} but I saw I had a jar of pizza sauce. Not sure when I bought it but it hadn’t expired. My mind started thinking what can I do with pizza sauce besides the obvious, make a pizza, and then suddenly it dawned on me what my friend does. My friend used to make english muffin pizzas on occasion when our kids would play together.


I thought what a great idea for lunches over the weekend and so my boys helped me make some on Friday and then again on Saturday we made some with my daughter. I couldn’t get AJ to eat the english muffin pizzas nor would Baby K but they all had a blast making them. Justin put in a request and so AJ had fun pretending to complete orders like we were in a restaurant, it was adorable.

We used pepperoni, mozzarella cheese and cheddar cheese, each pizza was made to order based on what each of us preferred. It was a fun family time and delicious lunch time afterwards!
