The chicken returns!

Smoked chicken that is! Haha oh my poor David.

Last time we lived in China our old driver Mr Wan used to buy us a smoked whole chicken( head and feet, everything) almost every week. We REALLY didn’t have the heart to tell him we didn’t care for it because we really like chicken and eat a lot of it and he always saw us buy chicken.

In Brazil we were able to buy rotisserie chicken. It was sooooo delicious! We would treat ourselves to one every weekend and then I could make chicken soup with the left overs.

When we returned to China, we got a new driver. Thankfully Mr Wan didn’t tell Wang about chicken. ( He did tell him other things we like) Much to David’s pleasure we haven’t had smoked chicken.

Well, my Chinese friends, always make sure we are looked after and experience all things. Li Dan Yao decided we needed to try one of Shenyang’s famous things. She asked if I knew about a certain kind of chicken and I said no.( not realizing it was the smoked chicken) So next thing I know she’s gone and bought me a smoked chicken and said, “YOU MUST TRY” I guess it’s really famous in Shenyang.

The smoked chicken is back!

And it’s really not so bad, especially with some veggies 😀

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
