reunited and it feels so good

I'm sorry I've been neglecting this blog a little. This week was a big one at 30 Before 30 with two things getting knocked off my list. I also had Spanish finals, started running, and have just been all over the place basically. But today I have something yummy for y'all. Yesterday was my first day back on meat, which was quite a change for me. I had some butter chicken for lunch, which I wasn't too keen on, reinforcing the idea that I should really just eat meat when I know for sure that what I'm having is good and stay veggie otherwise. But this was totally worth going back to meat for. Hello my darlings, how I've missed you!



I got a little too excited and asked for 3 orders of Joe's Shanghai's crab and pork soup dumplings. For a party of 6. Whoops. We ate it all though. As well as all of this:


I had the greens (for old time's sake hehe), loooads of yang chow fried rice (oh juicy shrimp, I missed you!), and some of the fried shrimp (below). But I passed on the salt & pepper pork. I actually did not feel like eating it at all, which just goes to show how going veg changes your eating habits. 



My friends did some insane food tripping while I was on my vegetarian diet, which I was very sad to miss. So I'm making them go back to a lot of these places. I'm really excited to go to Sik Gaek Chun Ha, that Korean restaurant in Flushing where Anthony Bourdain ate still-moving octopus. Check out my friend Pattie's blog post on their experience. I'm all for consuming still moving food, as you may already know from reading this blog.

I may never go back to consuming meat at a pace rivaling a T-Rex. But I have to say, it feels good to be eating some of my favorite things again!

Whoops. Second "complaint" I've received for ill-timed yang chow fried rice and dumplings post from people in time zones where Chinese food isn't available yet. Sorry! Hope you got your fix!

Haha, I think I just google image-d "Alice in Wonderland costumes" or something like that. I just watched the movie tonight, and I really liked that dress too! I also liked the strapless number that the Hatter randomly cut up after he stuffed her in the teapot. Plus that was hilarious.

And I just went to Joe's like a month ago for the first time. Those dumplings were delicious. Congrats on the progress on your 30 Before 30, by the way! I'm thinking about making a similar list myself.
