I was right. We were lucky to be spared the destruction Hurricane Sandy unleashed on New Jersey and New York, but we did lose power for 18 hours. The heavy rains, strong wind and uncertainty led both the Federal Government and Metro system to close for two days. My office was closed for both days the Metro was closed as well.
Before the storm hit Virginia, we went out for dinner at Full Kee.
Seafood Pan-fried Noodles
The husband loves this dish, with the crispy thin egg noodles topped with the light seafood sauce and chunks of seafood and gai lan (Chinese broccoli).
Sauteed snow pea shoots with garlic.
Perfect way to get in some vitamin-rich greens. Nice smokey flavor from the wok.
Beef with Chinese Broccoli.
Trying to get a different protein in, this was a surprise hit.
Glorious, and slightly gluttonous dinner. We brought the leftovers back with us, and had them for brunch the next day while waiting for Superstorm Sandy to hit.
