Eating Dinner.

We finally tried the food court at New-Mart yesterday for lunch. First you purchase a card for a 10rmb deposit and load it with money. Then you go to the various booths around the central eating area that fix different foods and select what you want. They swipe your card subtracting the amount of your purchase. Deb and I had the same thing; some skillet fried potatoes, onions and liver; a large meatball with a sweet sauce; and some honey BBQ glaze chicken nuggets. I think this is the best thing we have eaten since arriving. Suzanne had some noodle soup. After you finish your meal you take your card back to the cashier to get your balance and deposit. We all ate for less than $8 U.S. Suzanne and myself are starting to get the hang of eating with chop-sticks. If Deb remembers she brings a fork. Tonight I fixed a pork vegetable stew with potatoes, onions, carrots, tomatoes, corn, bell peppers and celery. YUM!
