When I was a kid, Chinese food was my all-time favorite food. If my dad – a single dad stuck with 2 teenage kids and zero cooking skills – would give me free reign to choose takeout for dinner, I always chose our favorite local Chinese food restaurant. It’s still one of my favorite foods – give me lo mien and sesame chicken any day of the week and I’ll be one happy lady.
Luckily, the boys (Alex included!) enjoy it as well. While we occasionally get take out, we tend to make our own at home more and more often these days. It’s a more cost-efficient way to enjoy the food you love and there is no packing the kids up to go pick it up or paying a driver a tip for delivery.
