Did you know

… that today is Chop Suey Day? Legend has it that, while visiting New York City in 1896, Chinese ambassador Li Hung Chang’s cooks invented the dish for his American guests at a dinner. The dish was supposedly created to satisfy both Chinese and American tastes. The Chinese diplomat was trying to create good relations with the U.S. And you know the old saying, “The way to a person’s heart is through his or her stomach!” Whether or not the tale is entirely true, enjoy some chop suey today! 😉
