We had a Chinese takeaway last night. It was a set meal for two but was enough food for four. We had special fried rice, sweet and sour pork, beef with ginger and spring onions, szechuan chicken and all after a load of hors d’oevres which were almost a meal in themselves. There were also pots of sauces and some chicken nuggets which had been added for some reason. Of course we couldn’t manage all of it so I’ll finish it off today with the prawn crackers!
We had tea with the meal but in the evening finished a bottle of South African Rose wine. We usually drink still wine but this was fizzy and quite sweet – better in the evening with nuts than with a meal. I won’t normally write about our dining habits but this was a bit unusual!
