Happy Chinese New Year

Well, today is the first day of the Chinese New Year  ........  and, it would look most rude of us not to let it in without some sort of small celebration, so we have decided to throw caution to the wind and have a Saturday Night Takeaway ......
……. especially as we have a very excellent takeaway just three/four minutes away from Castle Greysquirrel.
However, making our own individual considered choices always takes an age, and then, after all the ermmming and ahhhing, we all end up choosing what we always usually have anyway, because it’s such a treat and we can be certain of liking what we have!  But, as we are, as I said, throwing caution to the wind, Darrell suggested we should throw it even further and go for the meal for three and all try something completely new ...... and out of our comfort zone!
So, that’s what we have agreed to do, eight dishes, none of which we have ever tried before, plus complimentary prawn crackers  ……. you certainly can’t not call us unadventurous and undaring!!!  It does sounds rather a lot, even with Nigel's erm, healthy appetite, but, as Darrell reasoned, if there’s any leftover, we’ll have a WONDERFUL breakfast to follow in the morning!!!  What is he like????
Gung hay fat choy!!!!
