again - why my butt and Tex-ass have something in common.

no flaming, April. cuz you know i love you, just that i had a bad experience getting to AND in Texas.

we went out for Chinese food tonight. not Panda Express, and not that we have anything against it, we're just looking for some different, flavored right Chinese food.

and we found one. not that far.

see - we used to have a place we would drive down to Oceanside to get to.
Oceanside is in San Diego county. it's about an hour or so from us.
this place was a hole in the wall, as the best places are. and they made the best pan fried chow mein ever.

ever.

then guess what? they closed up. seems the owners were tired of driving from Irvine to San Diego Co every.dang.day.

we mourned. we raged. we ripped our garments.

then we found Lily Garden here in Cypress. praise be, they make pan fried chow mein.

and it was goooooood.

i won't embarrass either of us with the happy sounds we both made as we tore into it, fighting as usual over the shrimp and the crispy bits of goodness cleverly disguised as fried chowmein noodles. suffice to say we both have bellies full of happiness.

and a hole in our hearts filled.

if only the rest of our holes could be filled so easily. and cheaply.

Please, please, please e-mail me about Texas. You cannot, and I repeat, CANNOT be serious about having a bad taste in your mouth about the "T" place!

Cuz, if you do, we were seriously separated at birth!!!!

Ooooo, other than the shrimp, that sounds fabulous! I revisited an old Chinese restaurant haunt of mine while on vacation. Forgot just how darn good it was. I got sesame chicken with brown rice. It was to die for!

Hope you had a great weekend! And yes, please, steal away!! :-)

Isn't it always seem to happen the best lil holes in the wall close without notice!
(read a post on jaquies blog about the T place and had to come read yours)
