GREAT EATS ON SUNDAY!

After church on Sunday, we went out to lunch with a couple of our friends. It was really relaxing because our four older kids went to their friends houses, and we just had our youngest, Veronica, with us.

We ate at this place called "Taiwan", and it was good enough to curb the craving for Chinese food. It wasn't the most authentic, and the 70's soft rock music playing in the background didn't really seem to fit with the theme of the restaurant.

But, who am I to complain. It was a nice lunch, with even better company!

We started off with the typical Won Ton Soup.

Moo Shu Pork. If you've had this before, then you know it is served with thin "pancakes." Well, it was kind of funny when they served it with TORTILLAS!!! I was tempted to ask if we could have cheese to make quesadillas. But, I have to admit that it was pretty good.

I don't remember the name of this dish, but it was spicy beef.

Gotta have the fried rice! Do you see the moo shu burrito in the background?

Chow Mein...

And finally, Cashew Chicken.

When we were done, our friend Warren suggested we get some frozen yogurt just a couple of blocks away. Great way to walk off the food. But, doesn't the yogurt cancel that out afterward?

So many toppings to choose from!

Of course, every little girl has to have pink sprinkles.

That looks so good! We love chinese food but we are super picky about it. Our favorite chinese restaurant is 80 miles south of us where we used to live. We can't find any decent ones where we live now, so we miss yummy chinese all the time. I'm with you though, if some quiet time is included in the meal it really doesn't matter what it tastes like. Glad that you had a good time :)

You would laugh at me when I ordered Chinese food. I get fried rice plain. I just want the rice-none of the other stuff they put in there :) I know I'm crazy!

The yogurt looks really yummy! I'm partial to pink sprinkles too. I love how you got some alone time with Veronica-that's always fun!

I don't ever feel guilty over frozen yogurt (hey, as long as it's not ice cream)! :)

ok...we're such chinese restaurant purist over here...but I admit that does look good. Never hurts to have a little tortillas with your fried rice. Our favorite Thai Restaurant is called Thai/Peru (the wife is Thai the husband is Peruvian) go figure!
