Call 9-11, Somebody's in a Food coma

This winter break has not been as relaxing as I'd imagine. I'm in the process of getting a new car and the whole entire ordeal is so much work! So what can possibly calm me down when I'm stressed? FOOD! I was craving A&J's like crazy. They serve the most authentic Schezuan style food in the DMV area. So I bundled up, headed to my bank to sign some paperwork. Then I rushed to A&J's for some delicious food!


The mug I rocked. I look so tired, and that's because I am. I had to work yesterday since 90% of my department took off this week. So it was just me and the microscope all day long yesterday. It can be be so energy-draining when it's just you working by yourself on Chromosome Analysis cases for 8 hours straight all day, everyday! 

I dabbed a little of MAC's "Cyber" lipstick on top of my lips just so I could get berry-quenched lips. I don't normally do dark lips because I don't like my lips so much. But today was pretty much whatever goes, since I didn't feel so swell.

After hitting up Chinatown in Philadelphia a couple days ago, I'm hooked on chrysanthemum tea!! I normally steer clear of tea because I don't like it to stain my teeth. But it's so warm and soothing to drink in the harsh, cold winter. 

I always order this Spicy Garlic Cucumber side dish when I go here. It's delicious! I love cucumbers and pickled vegetables in general.

And of course! Gotta have wontons when you go to a Chinese restaurant. But this just ain't any ordinary wonton soup. It's a spicy (you notice a pattern by now? I love ANYTHING spicy!!) Schezuan-style wonton soup. No noodles, since I hate noodles with my wontons. But absolutely mind-fuckingly awesome!!

And this is what basically put me in a food coma. Straight up peanut oil sauce!! I shudder to think of how many calories makes up this dish. But this is my FAVORITEST dish by far at A&J's!!! It's the spicy (!) peanut sauce noodle dish. *licks lips*

Damn, today's been so chill for me. Definitely no complaints here. Hope everyone is eating good, as well!
