Tasty Takeout

Last week, I craved sushi, but going out with the toddler can be a bit tricky these days. Plus, it's quite expensive. So I picked up some spicy tuna rolls as well as some spring rolls and took them home. I had not planned on the spring rolls, but when I saw them, I just couldn't resist. (But now I am craving some Pho....).

The food was so fresh and tasty; the perfect lunch! Plus, I got to enjoy the lunch while the house was nice and quiet as the toddler was taking a nap.... What a nice treat! :0)

Questions: What's your favorite takeout food?

Be well,
Andrea

  1. Looks so delicious!

    Funny, I had a takeout dilemna last night! We like to order Chinese, but I always order the same old thing(steamed something or other). I decided to shake it up a bit and go for the Shrimp Lo Mein instead, and I loved it!

  4. Sushi is also our fav takeout! But my toddler would not nap through lunch, he has to eat whatever I'm having

  5. I always feel like such a dork answering this question, because we just don't go out to eat much. Not that I don't like it, but with our large family it is WAY expensive!

    But we do get pizza on occasion! Does that count?

  6. ooh that looks good! I'd say mexican... nachos... I love getting things to-go that I just can't make taste the same at home! Sushi would be my second - something i've never attempted making at home!

  7. I don't order take-out because if i ever eat out, i eat at the restaurant so i'll say my fave place to eat out is this lebanese place that has a delectable vegetarian platter with pita, hummus, falafel balls and more! it's amazing! i hope you have a wonderful day!

  11. I've never had sushi.. one day i'm going to have to just be brave and try it once and for all! lol!! It looks pretty good! :)

    We don't really do 'take-out', but when we get something delivered, it's pizza. Gets *very* expensive feeding a family of 6 take out! ;)

  12. Oh how nice! Sushi in peace, can't beat that. I had chinese food takeout last night, but it's not my favorite (it used to be). Now I would say my favorite takeout food is Boston Market. If you don't have one of those, it's basically a carry-out/restaurant that has the best chicken, meatloaf, turkey, and tons of great sides (mashed potatoes, creamed spinach, cooked veggies, mac and cheese) plus awesome corn bread. IT's similar to KFC, but much nicer and the food is more fresh and not as heavy.

  13. Yum! I love sushi and spring rolls - looks like a PERFECT lunch! I would say I LOVE Chinese take-out but we really only do it about once a year so it stays a special treat!

  14. Andrea this takeout looks SOOOO soo soo good. I love sushi more than any other food in the world, though lately I haven't been eating it. I miss it tremendously!!!! Sushi is by far my favorite takeout, too!

  16. That looks so good!

    We don't do takeout a lot, but my favorite is probably pizza!!

  17. Lunch while during nap time? A treat indeed! My fav take out are veggie subs. There's something about loads of veggies smashed between two piece of soft bread - oh man now I'm hungry!

  18. That sounds like it was a very lovely meal :)

    I honestly think your little meal would be perfect for my fav takeout food. A bit of sushi love and fresh summer rolls! Healthy, fresh, and best of all, tasty!

  19. Your little plate looks great. Spring rolls are soo good. I need to make my own. My favorite takeout is definitely sushi or thai. They never, ever get old! I prefer to actually get sushi takeout instead of going to a restaurant since I get tempted by martinis and random sides I don't need.

  20. Man, I've been on a pho craze for the past 10 days and yes, I am counting.

    Favorite take away has to be a nice, crispy pizza. Pre-made roast chicken is up there too but I'm not sure if that counts as takeaway :)

  23. I'm a big sushi fan! That looks absolutely heavenly!

    That being said, I have to say that my favorite takeout is Cashew Chicken. Especially from a little place in my hometown.

  24. Fav take-out would be a nice meaty burger. Yes, that's right, a burger! Even if it's from McDonald's! Preferably In-and-Out though.

    P.S. I think you are more Asian in taste than I am! My parents would LOVE you!
