T Stands For China Inn


Did you think I had reposted last week's post?  We're still celebrating Chinese New Year, even though we're a bit late.

We're back again at China Inn drinking water and preparing to peruse the menu.  This time we were seated at a table in the front, rather than a booth in the back.


I mentioned last week that this was a big menu.

Before I could take any more photos, the waitress arrived and looked rather disapprovingly at my taking photos of the menu.

I told her I wanted to take a photo of the food I was ordering so I would remember it, or she would have scooped it up before I could get this shot, even though my foodie friend Sally and I ordered the same thing this time as last time, the Number 2 Combination Plate.

Even Sally got in on the camera action.

I had to take a photo of the food this week, which I forgot last week. And before you ask, I gave Sally all my sweet and sour chicken, except one piece.

Now it's your turn to share a drink related post.  In case you don't know the rules, please link any post below that involves some form of drink.   That drink could be made from art, sketched, digital, hybrid, or traditional.  It can be a time when you were out and about, or a drink you had at home.  It could be in the form of a book you read, a postcard you received, scrapbook page you created, or a movie you watched.   It doesn't matter as long as you can, in some way, tie it back to a drink.  After linking your post below (direct links only, please), Bleubeard, the T gang, and I will be by to visit and enjoy whatever you choose to share.  And remember, as Bleubeard would say, your photos may be taken any time, not just on Tuesday.



And please don't forget it's time to be thinking about your Second on the 2nd.  If you are new here, every month, on the 2nd, we share an old blog post.  It can be one that you are possibly quite fond of, or one that you shared before anyone knew your blog existed.  Any entry, any genre is acceptable, as long as you have posted it sometime in the past.

You're making my mouth water, Elizabeth! I love Chinese food and it's hard to come by where I live ;-( Happy T Day!

Good job I am on my way to bed or I would be raiding the fridge, this food looks delicious.
It happens here in some places when taking photos of food, you would think the owners would be pleased to see their food being shared on a photo with others and perhaps they would get more customers.
Happy T day Elizabeth and to Bleubeard and Squiggles as well

Are you trying to tell us that you do not like sweet&sour chicken? I really have to go eat Chinese food again one of these days. Over the past few years, we got more into Japanese food i.e. sushi!!

CJ Kennedy said...

Gong Hey Fat Chow! Happy Chinese New Year! :-D the looks you get just because you want to take a picture of food. 2 Combination looks delicious. The orange color of the dish along with the lemon from your water is a slice of sunshine on a cold day. Happy T Day!

It was fun to see the photos of China Inn last time, but now we get to see the food. Looks delicious! And that is quite the extensive menu. An enjoyable outing.
