Last night ended on the earlier side for Megan and me – we were about to drop from exhaustion – but we did manage to drag ourselves to a Chinese takeout place (the party was in Chinatown) before heading home. I’m usually pretty adventurous about food (especially when I travel), but last night all I could think about was chicken and broccoli. Unfortunately, this conversation was had:
“Chicken with broccoli, please.”
“We have no broccoli.”
“Ok…chicken with water chestnuts, then.”
“No water chestnuts.”
“Chicken with mushrooms?”
And don’t even get me started on our request for pork dumplings. In any case, we made it home and I went to town on the chicken with asparagus, so all turned out well in the end.
