[A parody]

It's official: The Childrens love Halloween!

They loved everything. Dressing up, face painting, knocking on the door, saying trick-or-treat, saying thank you, getting candy, getting candy, getting candy...

On a different note, we got Chinese take-out today from some place owned by a long-lost relative of someone I used to work with back in SC. The Mrs. had this:

She really liked it, but she couldn't remember what it was she ordered. Was it Hunan beef? Szcheuan Beef? Mongolian Beef? Well, I don't know. I wasn't there when she ordered it. So, given my remarkably generous nature, I'm going to do my first bleg. Just what exactly is this? And don't say it's JackyB's butt. If you can identify this dish, maybe I can convince The Mrs. to write-up her flu/bowling/hospital story.

I'm not enough of a Chinese food savvy to classify this dish.
But, closely inspecting the photo, I can identify broccoli, snow peas, carrots (I know, I'm a genius!), chilly peppers, and a couple of earlobes.

No idea.

Ohhhhhh - sorry!!!
I was reading "Human beef" instead of "Hunan beef"... hence the earlobe trend of thought.

I guess that what happens when you are immersed too much in portrait painting.

The JohnnyB couldn't define it, either. Can we still get the story, just for trying?

It's the hunan beef.

No story for you faithful readers of the bain of my existence because I don't get any sleep. Ever. Except maybe a little on Sundays. Boycott CherkyB until I get a full-night's rest AND can sit here without MaxieC holding down the arro8w keys a8nd whacking me in the fac4e with the n mousepad44 a4t44544 44444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444488888+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Looks like Chinese Style Placenta.

1) Did HannahC pick out the costume herself, was it pre-ordained, or did CherkyB have a hand the choice?

2) Posting about food - hmmm - isn't that a classic "jump the shark tank" blog?
