At the Chinese Grocers'

Last night we had dinner with Soldier Boy and his family and after
dinner, stopped in at the Chinese Grocery next to the
Vietnamese/Chinese restaurant where we ate. I absolutely loved it--so
interesting. It's been a long time since I've seen chickens with
their heads on in a nomral American grocery. And those crawdads were
all alive and crawling around--the crabs too. The upside down
crawdads had just been dumped in. People were snapping them up like
mad. I just got some rice paper and tapico spring roll wrappers. I
used to keep crayfish as pets and didn't want to boil them.

Those chicken heads remind me of pictures Charlotte sends when she is in China. Pictures of chicken heads on dinner plates all ready to eat. Apparently they are delicious as are chicken's feet.
Wonderful variety of food though it might put me off ordering chicken!

We ate at a restaurant assciated with this store and PB had chicken--I tasted it--the piece I had awas a little leathery, but he said it was good.

The chickens look like they are just sleeping ;)
