Glad you got your package, it arrived early than USPS predicted! Out of curiosity, what part of Michigan are you from? Hope everything goes well with your dad's surgery.
Woo! I was super excited when the package came too. I plan on making this recipe tonight with the cookie cutters to take to Atlanta this weekend. Yay!
And I am from a tiny town in Michigan called Temperance (how poetic, no?) I love the Midwest and am excited my Tumblr buddy is from there too! (It is the best, of course!)
Totally random, but I saw that you had mentioned the smell of Panda Express following you around. I always feel like that when I leave Subway - there is that distinct "Subway" smell I can't seem to shake!
The real reason I'm writing is to ask if Panda Express is any good? There is one opening in my town early next month and I've never been to one or heard anything about it!
Is Panda Express any good? Heck yes it is! But it’s also probably really bad for you. When I lived in Chicago, I worked in Pru 2, where there is a Panda in the lobby. I probably gained a good 10 pounds from eating there way too often.
It’s not anything too particularly special, but essentially they have a bunch of really yummy entrees to choose from. You pick either chow mein or rice, and an entree or two and it’s like $7. My favorites are the black pepper chicken and chicken with mushrooms or string beans. Because I love getting my money’s worth, I usually get a to-go box because they put a little bit more in the box :)
And I totally have the same problem with Subway! And I also notice that the grocery store does the same thing, though I can’t place the smell.
Sometimes I can’t believe some of the things I write about on here.
