Goin’ down to China town

as soon as the plates arrived we chowed down...thus the mostly empty plate picture

This would be authentic Chinese: Mixed Vegetables (carrots, snap peas, celery, carrots, onions), Kung Pao Chicken (little bits of chicken with onions, chilies, and peanuts), Mongolian Beef (beef with onions and scallions in a sweet sauce), Sesame Chicken (deeply fried with broccoli), Shrimp and Veggies (peppers + pineapple), Green Beans (deep fried from what I could tell, with almonds), and Eggplant and Chicken (I ate 90% of the eggplant by myself). There was so much flavor and spice, especially from those little red chilies. There was also way too much oil for my taste…I’m probably glistening from it coming out my pores, but I was thankful the restaurant gave us small plates to dish this bounty onto and I ate with my chopsticks and drank TONS of water, so I don’t feel like I totally overdid it. My Bible study gals all met at the Royal Sichuan in Richardson’s China town for a little authentic Chinese. I know it was authentic because 1-2 of the girls lived in China/Taiwan for 4 years, so they know legit food when the eat it and 2-we were the ONLY white people in there. Om nom nom. SO good.

Here is a little letter I composed in my head as I ran today:

Dear Wind,

I thought you had decided to leave Dallas, but apparently I was mistaken. If you left here angry, then you certainly came back with pure vengeance. I would appreciate you toning down your gusts, or at least not always fighting with me and causing me to almost fall over and lose all my ponytail holders. We can be friends, if you just work with me, not against me.

Love, Alyssa

ps- You provide breezes so I don’t completely overheat, and you are good for resistance training, so I don’t completely hate you. Just a little.
