This reminds me of an undiscovered muppet creation, put a mouth on him and you got Elmo's new playmate!
 
other than that it looks delicious

      The weather is pretty disgusting today.  It's so humid and with thunderstorms in the area I'm not grilling on this Labor Day! I picked up some Chinese Food for everyone to pick on throughout the day!
      Sesame chicken.

      Pork Fried Rice.

      Wontons in Sesame Sauce. The wontons here are really meaty and good!

      Boneless Ribs. They put a char on them here which makes them very tasty.

      Spring Roll.

      Shrimp Toast.

      Egg Drop soup.

      Chicken for the sweet and Sour Chicken.

      It's not our typical Labor Day meal but I haven't heard any complaints!

          So true CC! Funny thing, though, I've never found a Chinese restaurant that does everything to our likening perfectly. I've been know to pick up from three or even four different places to put together one meal! This is one of the few places I would admit that! Crazy, right?

            Same here Agnes!

            It's usually Yummy Yummy for hot & sour soup & Great Wall for Chow Mei Fun. They're only a few blocks apart so it's no problem.

            NJ Chinese food was Christmas dinner last year. My sons has so much fun...it may stay a tradition.

            That's usually where they meet all their friends after Christmas dinner to compare the presents.

                  So funny, My husband had to go out of town on Christmas so we had our Christmas feast the weekend before. My kids and I decided we would go the route of A Christmas Story and get Chinese food. As it turned out we all came down with the flu so it was a good choice! We got lots of soup besides some of the usual's. There's been talk of doing it again this year (not the flu part of course)! We'll see!
                  CCinNJ
                  BTW, CC, As I'm sure is the case with you, we have at least 8 or 10 Chinese restaurants within a 5 mile radius of where I live! Lot's of choices. We also have at least the same amount of pizza places! 

                  Same here Agnes!

                      Hilarious visual on the muppet character, CK!
                       
                      Agnes, after your pics it was all I could do to stay away from my favorite Chinese place!  But I was no saint as it turned out--I had a donut and soft pretzel.

                          Agnes-I labored on Labor Day-that meal looked awesome. I must admit to the masses-I have never had shrimp toast.....describe and discuss.

                              Just got back from shopping and lunch at Mitsuwa Marketplace with my son Kyle. It has become kind of a birthday tradition for him.
                              Gotta have a bowl of ramen!

                              We also bought some fresh onigiri from
                              Omusubi Gonbei a shop that specializes in them. We got a salmon roe, spicy tuna, shrimp tempura and a salmon filled one.

                                          I had Chow Mei Fun for lunch today...




                                          Speaking of fun Chinese...a few weeks ago L2B & I had the good fortune to visit the Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory in SF Chinatown. I first read about it in a NYT article a hundred years ago...

                                          http://travel.nytimes.com.../26foraging.html?_r=1&

                                          It sounded like an interesting place & it was a very fun place to visit. One of the obscure lesser-known Roadfood experiences to visit. That's what makes life fun & exciting.

                                          Confucius say...time to embark on an adventure...



                                          Fortune Cookie Factory is a tiny place that's tucked down a little alley. Confucius say...stay on right path where mystery awaits...



                                          Getting closer...

                                                    It was a very cool place. The fresh fortune cookies and Smackles were awesome.

                                                    We had another very fun Chinese adventure. This time it was Deem Sum @ Yank Sing.

                                                    It's deem sum @ Yank Sing...



                                                    Yank Sing is an iconic restaurant in San Francisco...a 2009 winner of the James Beard Foundation America's Classic award. There's plenty of dim sum in San Francisco but there's only one...



                                                    Yank Sing is a nice elegant restaurant that's also warm charming gracious friendly & fun.



                                                    The dining room filled with the coolest rides in San Francisco (not the trolleys) the deem sum carts...





                                                    My favorite cart...Peking Duck...the Cadillac cart of the floor...



                                                    Yank Sing makes over 100 different varieties of deem sum at various times. it varies on a daily basis...& a great reason to visit Yank Sing again.

                                                    The carts came around with the various selections...








                                                    Make selections & score is kept on the bill tucked under the tablecloth...



                                                    The delicious deem sum we selected...

                                                    Shrimp Dumplings...



                                                    Spareribs...



                                                    Bacon-wrapped shrimp...




                                                    Our waitress told is that the sweet rice dumplings filled with BBQ pork were her favorite. We ordered them & they were complex (in a very good way) & like everything else @ Yank Sing delicious...







                                                    And for dessert...

                                                    Pistachio ice cream cake...



                                                    The very fun '& exciting orange juice jello...





                                                    Yank Sing is only open a few hours a day...for lunch. It is well worth the price & a deem sum meal is not only about delicious food but also about service & atmosphere. Yank Sing hits a home run on all counts.

                                                    It often takes a year for any given set of hands to connect with the mind & perfect the deem sum dishes expertly constructed @ Yank Sing.

                                                        CC - your pics are great and it was big fun!  Would love go to both of those places again right now.  It's great having those little carts come around--kind of the opposite of a cafeteria line.

When ordering a dozen it helps to be in the company of someone that also loves donuts & thinks that's a good idea. No yada yada dozen donuts? Dozen donuts? What are you gonna do with a dozen donuts? None of that. Thankfully.

                                                          L2B was down with that. She even ordered a big chunk of Apple Pandowdy...

                                                            Today is National Crab Newburg Day!

                                                            I came close with the very delicious Lobstah & Crab Thermidor from Tadich Grill...


                                                            I'll wait until "bizarre waiter & french fry day" or "delightful busboy day" for the rest of that story.
