Today was Chinese New Year so I decided that I needed to have some Chinese Food for dinner.
I was busy at work today so was not able to go have a Chinese New Year Lunch like I had last year. I really enjoyed the Shanghai dumplings that I had last year.
I had already made an appointment to get a much needed haircut so had to get that done before I could go get some Chinese Food for dinner. I also decided that it was time to trim the beard since spring is already showing signs of springing here in California.
For dinner I went to Panda Express and had black pepper chicken and string bean chicken. A healthier choice than the orange chicken that I almost decided on. You can see that Panda Express was giving out red envelopes. I opened mine up and it had coupons for a future visit. A nice little treat.
I can’t say that I had anything real similar to this in China last month, but it did follow the theme of vegetables and spicy sauces. Definitely some good American style Chinese food.
I would have rather had a bowl of these great Xian Noodles.
However, I did enjoy the meal while thinking of my many friends who celebrate the Chinese or Lunar New Year.
