Going with the flow

Tonight I went with the flow of where everyone wanted to go to eat.  We ended up at Panda Express since we all couldn’t agree on a place :) LOL….I LOVE Chinese food but I often prefer to make it since you can make it so much healthier.  I was surprised to find that the nutritional stats at Panda Express are not too bad if you stay away from the known bad for you items.

I normally ordered the Mixed Vegetables when they give you the option of fried rice or chow mein.  But, not having my afternoon snack and waiting so long for dinner left my eyes WAY bigger than my stomach.  I decided to order 1/2 and 1/2 of each and ironically I only ate 1/2 and 1/2 of my 1/2’s….make sense?! :D LOL….Along with my carb overload, I had…


A bunch of crisp mixed veggies – steamed with soy sauce.


Plus some green bean chicken…LOVE this dish and it’s only 3 Weight Watcher Points!


I might have also stole 2 bites of The Husband’s Orange Chicken and Mushroom Chicken.

Doesn’t their Chinese food look pretty delish for being fast?  I have to admit, it wasn’t half bad.  Oh I had my fortune cookie too because honestly I EAT Chinese just for that little cookie with a message.  Have you all noticed I have a thing for foods that talk to me yet? LOL….

It was a good night out with some fun bonding with The Husband and his Mom (Mother-In-Law sounds so formal).

My Summer Dessert also got selected to be on FoodieView as a featured dish of the day – how cool is that?!  Click HERE to check it out!

Thanks again to EACH and EVERY one of you who has gone above and beyond in helping to VOTE! for me in the MyRecipes.Com Best Summer Desserts contest.  I plan on posting what I’ve learned from this whole experience tomorrow.

For now, there is STILL one day left to my Nectarine Raspberry Sorbet over Fresh Fruit – Click HERE to VOTE!….Just think after tomorrow you all won’t have to hear me say or ask you to do that anymore :)

Ha! Have a great night ~ See you all in the morning!
