Have I told you how much my daughter loves when I make homemade Chinese food? Yeah it’s like our thing to either eat it out or at home. Our schedule this holiday season hasn’t allowed for much time to really cook. I am hoping to free up time to make some yummy Frozen cookies and a few really tasty soups. What are you cooking? Or are you just going out to eat? Monday night I decided it was time for some homemade Chinese I was so over the out to eat game. I whipped up (took over an hour) some sweet and sour chicken. It was so darn delicious!
It’s something about this time of year that I just crave Chinese food. I think it’s because when I was younger my grandparents would shop and then we would stop by Chuck’s Chinese and American food. It was just around the corner from where I grew up. I remember playing in the kitchen. The bowls decorated with the blue designs and the cool soup spoons that were definitely like the soup spoons we had at home. The atmosphere was like home to me. It is one of the best memories from my childhood.
Do you have a memory that stretches back into your childhood that you’ll never forget. One that dances in your brain with beauty? I’d love to hear about it below. I know I only have a few but they are so fun and always seem to be wrapped around food. Guess I was always a foodie at heart.
I hope you can try out this dish and wrap some really great holiday memories with it. I know we will. Hopefully, I can find a way to do this in this in the summer too for a movie marathon or season watching party. It really does fit so many occasions. I am off to see the new The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies today and I cannot wait!Print
