Friday Night Chinese Take-Out

This evening we decided to stay in and just get Chinese take-out so I could take the night off from cooking and we could just relax. It's especially nice since we found out that our local Chinese restaurant could make me anything I wanted, simply steamed without any sauce or seasoning added. They actually offer a couple of steamed choices on their menu but will also make anything you want. Tonight I decided to order one of their steamed meals, Steamed Gourmet Garden (jumbo shrimp, chicken and beef with mixed vegetables). I simply add my own gluten-free Tamari sauce at home. It was amazing. It was filled with beef, chicken and shrimp as well as broccoli, snow peas, celery, carrots, mushrooms, bok choy, and a few water chestnuts. I had them add a few peanuts on top. We're going to watch movies at home tonight and just relax a bit. It's a dark and drizzly evening and a perfect fuzzy socks and p.j.'s sort of night! I snapped some photos of my delicious steamed meal below. I actually served it on a plate this evening so you could see how nice a simple steamed meal can be. A little sprinkle of Tamari made it perfect. Enjoy!  :-)

Thanks! I really enjoyed both the food and the "break." :-)
