Dinner Thursday, 2-13-14 ~ Did NO ONE cook today?

Holey Moley, it's almost 10 PM on the east coast and no one started a thread? And I made a nice lo mein. Beef, if you must know. As a co-inky-dink, I bought much of my supplies from an Asian grocery market that GB (Hi GB! Glad to see ya!) told me about a few years back.

OK, doesn't matter if your dinner is done digesting, what did you have today?

Well CG, I didn't cook. I threw together a salad while the leftover pizza from last night baked in the toaster oven. Nothing exciting here. Your lo mein looks good!

Three Lindor Truffles, some cottage cheese, and a clementine. I would like some of CG's beef lo mein!

Still pooped from grocery shopping and Stirling ate at the game he plays with friends. I had a banana. I will have some of the double cream Brie I bought, when it comes up to room temperature. I'll probably find some other stuff to munch and have some halvah for dessert.

DH made some wonderful meatballs earlier this week; we had the extras tonight warmed up with Sweet Baby Ray's barbecue sauce and egg noodles tossed with butter and chopped fresh parsley. I may have some butter-pecan ice cream before bed.

We had left over baked chicken, with some rice a nice salad and steamed Broccoli. DH did the reheating and salad making. I could go for some of CG's lo mein or some of GG's meatballs!

Wow guys, if I had known you'd all want my lo mein I would have made a bigger pan! As it was, the "serves four" served the two of us...twice. All gone.

I used this recipe on foodnetwork.com - it's a Rachael Recipe. I eliminated the red peppers because that's ALL we taste the rest of the night, but I doubled the scallions (Himself said I should throw in chunks of sweet onion next time) and also threw in some extra of the peas and mushrooms. Used about a half-pound of sirloin steak. Oh, and next time I'll cut back on the tamari. It called for 1/2 cup. I used about 1/3 and it was still salty. Next time I think I'll use 1/4 tamari and 1/4 rice vinegar.
