Jeannette's Birthday Dinner
Jeannette's birthday is Monday when she turns 20 something and last night, a few people gathered for dinner at Grand Sichuan, a place renowned for its spicy food. Spicy it was. We had hot pot, some appetizers, and some main dishes, but none of Mao's favorite dishes.
There was also a three flavor ice cream cake, which hit the spot after the spicy food. Banana, red bean, and lychee, the perfect trifecta for Asians. Yum. The only issue was the fire that came in the form of candles. Good lord those were some strong and dangerous candles. I don't believe a fire extinguisher was on hand.
Happy (early) birthday, Jeannette!
thanks so much for coming out last night! that totally satisfied my spice food jones. i consider myself lucky that i still have my eyelashes and eyebrows after all those candles. i think once i hit 30 we're going to have to implement the under-10 candle rule. lol!
next time, we gotta go to sripraphai for spicy food!!

so curious, not being Chinese, what exactly does 'Mao Ze Dong Style' mean? (past roommates and others have been a bad influence on my innocent mind)
