Impromptu Lunch at P.F. Chang’s

Posted on September 4, 2016 by under Food and Drink.    

It has been about six years since Jay introduced me to The Secret and it never ceases to amaze me how it works. Granted, the concept of the Law of Attraction was something that I was already living. I just didn’t know that it was a thing. And, I wasn’t doing it consciously. Now that I know about The Secret, I’m a little bit more purposeful about behaviors and decisions.

So I was sitting at my desk the other day, trying to figure out what I wanted to do for lunch. We didn’t have any food at the house so Brian didn’t pack any lunches for us that day. Around ten after eleven, Alicia came by and invited me to go to a celebration lunch. She told me they were going to P.F. Chang’s and I was like, “Sold!” I usually go to lunch at around eleven so I’m really glad that I hadn’t gone yet that day or I would have missed Alicia’s invite. As I was thinking about lunch, the universe did even better and provided a free lunch. LOL.

Here’s a picture of my free lunch:


Thanks, universe! Actually, thanks to Alicia. I did tell her that I was super grateful for the invite because I had just been wondering what to do for lunch literally moments before she asked.

I’d had been to P.F. Chang’s in a while so it was perfect. Brian and I used to eat there all the time but, for some reason or another, it had fallen off our eating out rotation. I think probably because we’ve been gravitating toward more locally-owned and mom-and-pop restaurants over the last few years. As restaurant chains go, the food at P.F. Chang’s is very good.

If I had to eat at a chain restaurant, P.F. Chang’s would be one of my top pics for sure. There are several reasons for this but the main one being, with P.F. Chang’s I know what I’m going to get — figuratively and literally speaking because I actually always get the same thing when I’m there — Mongolian beef and eggplant. It’s made the way I like it so I add eggplant. I love eggplant, specially with the sauce/flavorings used in Mongolian beef.

I really like the lunch portions. They’re the perfect size. Then again, when I get the Mongolian beef with eggplant, I always clean my plate out no matter the size of the portion. LOL. The other thing about the lunch combos is that you can do appetizer add-ons (there are several to choose from listed on the menu) inexpensively. I had crab wontons added for $2 and I’m so glad I did because it reminded me of how amazing their crab wontons are.

Krystee didn’t like the crab wontons for the exact same reason that I loved them. They contained too much crab and not enough cheesy goodness for her. I actually liked that they were all crab.

Oh, and before you freak out. I did not have a cocktail at lunch. That drink you see in the upper left corner is P.F. Chang’s yummy strawberry cucumber lemonade. I like it because it reminds me of refreshing spa water, only sweeter (because it’s lemonade and not water). Cucumbers always make me think of spa water.

Anyway, I’m super grateful for the opportunity to join Alicia, Krystee, Alex and Teresa on Teresa’s celebration lunch. It definitely beats eating lunch at my desk which is what I end up doing most of the time.

P.S. I was only kidding around The Secret. I know it don’t really work like that. My life is full of these creepy coincidences, though. It’s like the universe is paying attention to every single thought that comes through my mind. I have to constantly remind myself to be careful what I wish for because, inevitably, some form of it happens. It’s both good and bad. Brian and I have learned to roll with the punches. Now it’s a running joke around here when some kind of coincidence happens we chalk it up to The Secret and get a good chuckle.
