Suburban strip-mall restaurant Chinese food for my family, when my adorable maternal grandparents were visiting, always included the following:

* Shrimp in lobster sauce - for Bubby
* Pepper steak - for Poppop
* Spare ribs - for me
* Egg foo yung - for my parents
* Lo mein - for everyone?
* Who the hell remembers - for my brother and sister

I hated being told I had to accompany my mother when she picked it up. But oh, how I loved the drive home, the huge hot cardboard box of food resting on my lap, and my head bowed over the bags inside it, in anticipation of the feast.
