What is it about leftover Chinese food?

It makes a damn good lunch the day after you buy it.  Too bad I’ll be hungry an hour from now.  And what’s up with that?  Maybe some doctor or nurse can explain that one to me.

I think this is the part where you are to write something clever and witty about yourself. I’m solidly locked in middle age and content with myself. I love to travel to see and experience new things, new foods and new drink. I also like to cook and bake mainly because I like to eat. And I found out that I’m pretty good at both. I'm not a professional blogger nor do I want to be. I'll leave that to others while I'll kick back and post whatever suddenly pops into my brain. I'm more spontaneous anyway. And the rest we’ll just kinda sorta figure out as we go along. Feel free to leave comments or even just to say "Hello". Find me at: https://mnghostt.wordpress.com.

  1. Ts ts ts!
    Many carbohydrates (no wholemeal I guess?) and little protein. Veggies are good though!
    And I don’t know about your place, but here Chinese food is infamous for containing loads of flavor enhancers

    Haven’t you been told to eat good things?

      1. No not today, another week. And then right after that is your birthday but once again I forgot the exact date. I used to remember but I am old, officially old and senile…

  2. I think Chinese food tastes good anytime because we all have a “Yen” for it! My favorite is egg foo young and potstickers. I’m always hungry an hour later too… but I’m always hungry an hour later no matter what I eat. 👍🍝👍

  3. My wife’s a nurse practitioner. She told me there is no known medical reason, other than, MSG might possibly stimulate areas of the brain that regulate hunger. This is only a theory, and there isn’t any scientific proof. Personally, I think they slip cannabis in with the vegetables. Why do you think they jamb two hundred menus into the bag with the food, and smile as you leave. They know you’re coming back.
