chinese food is a favorite in our house.  everyone in my house eats almost any chinese food i put in front of them.  this recipe is a variation of a recipe i found several months ago.  i liked the recipe that i found, but it had some ingredients in it that wouldn’t normally be found in my house, and i would have to go out and specifically buy them for this meal.  anything that requires a special trip to the store for ingredients that i most likely wouldn’t use for another recipe, is unlikely to happen, so i tweaked!
