  1. I looked for General Tso’s sauce at my market today, but they don’t carry it. I found it on Amazon and had sticker shock! Does it cost $9 for a 15oz bottle at your market?

    I bought Panda Express’ Orange sauce and have that simmering over chopped up chicken in the crock pot now. It won’t be the same I know it! 🙂

    • No – that is probably double what I paid for it – if not more! They have a couple brands in our Asian section of the market. Maybe you could ask for it or try another store. But… Orange Sauce sounds wonderful too! I’ll be it will be wonderful. Enjoy!
