"I'll take the hot and sour with an egg roll please"

Welcome to another edition of Tempt My Tummy Tuesday. It has been great having new people join in, every week. We are getting a good grouping of recipes. If you are new to the carnival, let me catch you up. My sister, Lisa, and I co-host this blog carnival. We invite you to share a recipe, kitchen/ cooking tip, great food find, anything foodie. Write about it on your site, make sure you mention TMTT and link back to Mr. Linky on Lisa's site.

Lately I have been recipe... weary, just lacking the desire to throw it together and get it on the table. Last night was one of those such nights. We had been in the front yard for 2
hours with the neighbors visiting and watching the kids play in the sand box and run around looking for rolly polly bugs. Good times. Then it hit me... it's 5:30pm these people are going to want to eat! Hmmm I REALLY don't want to cook... so...

Take out to the Rescue!!!
All I had to say was " doesn't Chinese sound good honey?" I had him at "honey"

A quick call to the Happy Dragon and mama was Happy!
My daughter loves rice and can use chop sticks like she was born in Beijing. My hubs spent some tim
e there working right before we got married and really got good at using chop sticks so he thought it would be fun to teach her... she is now better at it than he is. In fact, no matter what we eat that includes rice... she uses chop sticks. It very Mulan...

So next time you've got the recipe blues and just don't want to cook... order up!

Last night was Chicken with Garlic and Spicy Dragon Chicken (I KNOW, I was SO worried about what was showing up in that box, but... very tasty.)
A
nd by all means... don't forget the fortune cookie, it adds to the fun or the irritation. My fortune last night "patience is a lesson taught many times"
Yah... like you had to tell me!

So... when you get the take out itch... how do you scratch it? What is your favorite place to call?

Mmmm, okay, I'm hungr now. I love Chinese, and what better way, especially when you don't feel like cooking that getting take out! It's fun to make too, but so time consuming. Glad you took a break and had some fun!!!

Chinese take out is the BEST : ). I love this blog carnival that you do with your sister. It is so fun! I don't usually have recipes to share because I am possibly the worst cook on the planet : ) but I do love coming and seeing the ideas that everyone has each week!
