Perfect For Tonight - Jia Mei Asian Kitchen

Tonight required take-out for dinner. Why? Well this week is bulk trash pick up in my Dad's town. Now my Dad was 96 and he lived in his home for 63 years. Need I say more. He kept everything. We were moving things today and finding things we had never seen before. We had all hands on deck. Husbands, wives, nephews, nieces. Everyone showed up. I suppose it is part of the closure process but I was feeling kind of melancholy about the whole thing.
It was weird because I have been going to my Dad's every weekend since he passed to clean out stuff. But today it just felt so sad to see all of my parents "stuff" being piled up outside.

So with that said we got take out tonight. A new restaurant opened in our town, Jia Mei Asian Kitchen. We ordered our usually fare to test the waters - BBQ Pork, Egg Rolls, Fried Dumplings, Szechaun Beef and General Tso's Tofu.

Loved it. Sometimes Asian food, especially take out, has an aftertaste, kind of greasy and heavy. This food was so fresh tasting. The dumplings were light. The General Tso's sauce was light and nice and spicy. The food tasted healthy. I felt like I was eating a home cooked meal. It was a comforting feeling. I think we have a new favorite Asian take-out!
