Pon wasn't terribly cooperative when we went into the restaurant. In fact, he started screaming as soon as we set foot inside. Awesome. So I ordered quickly and then took Pon back out for a walk up and down the strip mall as our food was being prepared. And we encountered THIS:
|It wants to eat your face|
|See? It's as big as Pon's fist!|
After that Pon voluntarily walked into the restaurant, laughing and sat down when I asked him to. He really liked his lo mien, but was done eating in about 5 bites. I packed up my food and resolved to call TDG a few days in advance next time. And then we ran into him in the parking lot! He was stopping by CVS for a snack and drink after running some errands and was incredibly surprised to see us. We chatted in CVS (air conditioned!) for about half an hour and I invited him to dinner here sometime in the coming week. Hopefully that pans out!
Tonight's dinner was simple, a chicken and dumplings of sorts. I was going to go super basic- chicken in broth with simple noodles, but I added peas and used browning sauce while I was cooking the chicken so the broth got really dark (go figure). Pug loved it. The browning sauce added a ton of flavor and Pug said it even tasted beef stew-y.
