Golden Bag

No cooking in this post -- nothing especially amazing in the Chinese takeout department, either -- but I was in love with this greasy bag our complimentary eggroll came in.

The mu shu pork was pretty decent: classic brown sauce, tender pork, finely shredded cabbage. The pancakes were kind of gross and prepackaged, but whatever. It was quite late on a Sunday night, and we were excessively pleased to find somewhere open.

The kung pao chicken? Fine. A little bland. No pronounced dried red chile flavor. Cashews contributed no flavor. Better with some fresh garden chiles.

I think we got five meals out of this two-dish order: dinner for two, lunch for two, and a snack for one. Quite a deal. But probably the last time I eat Chinese takeout for another few years.
