A Chinese Meal.
I went out last night for a Chinese meal with a group of five friends. Our local Chinese restaurant is at the bottom of the market square with lovely views of the town - and of the sunset too as we arrived.
It is a long time since I ate Chinese food and I had forgotten how good it was. We had a selection of delicious dishes which we shared - prawns in sweet chilli sauce, ginger beef, chilli beef, lemon chicken, fried seaweed, spring rolls, egg fried rice, spare ribs. It was lovely sharing too - made the occasion much more enjoyable. There is something about sharing food rather than having an individual plate of food.
We had lovely conversations and a lot of laughs and it was only just down the road - no long journey to get there. We must do it more often. I took the above photograph really to show the farmer, who is suspicious of Chinese food. I hoped it would tempt him to perhaps go for a meal one evening, Time will tell.
#On a different note, the woodpecker has been back at the bird box again, squeezing inside and then throwing out all the debris. I wonder what his/her plan is for this house - again time will tell. Have a nice weekend.
