That recipe is nice, but here is mine for the same meal:

1) Find cellphone
2) dial Panda Haven
3) Speak these words into phone, "General Tso's Combo with Egg Roll, please"
4) Wait 7-9 minutes
5) Drive to Panda Haven - Approximately 500 yards
6) Pay $7.15
7) Drive home
8) Open and enjoy
9) Rinse and repeat weekly :)
