Mr. Schwartz loves General Tso's Chicken. He pretty much orders it every time we get Chinese food. I'm more of a Beef with Broccoli kinda girl but, sometimes I try to be a good wifey and make him happy and I think this really did. His review: "good but it could be sweeter." So, if you really want to make it authentic--form a real General Tso Chicken aficionado--you will need more sugar. I thought it was tasty the way it was.
Anyway, enjoy another Chinese Take Out Fake Out.
Musical Selection: Makin' Plans by THE Miranda Lambert. My sister in law, a couple of girl friends and I just bought tickets for her show in September and we are pumped!!! This song is one of my all time favorites by Miranda. Reminds me of my Mr. Schwartz.
Enjoy! I promise this one is worth the work and clean up. : )
