The final product–will start taking better pics!
Y’all–I get it, I’m the WORST. I’ve been a total a-hole and posted pics saying “recipe on blog tomorrow” and then not posting it. To be totally honest, my culinary skills have slacked off in the last year, and I need to pick it back up. Also–after you clean another humans poop off your hands, the last thing you want to do is think about food, or contaminate your keyboard. I never realized how much I washed my hands until I went through 4 industrial sized things of Target hand soap in a few months. This baby (nay, toddler) has dried out my hands and taken up my time. She can kill your appetite with her farts, and spit macaroni and cheese (she prefers Kraft over my homemade) across a room. She is the most legit baby
boy girl in the world who will eat anything from the floor or our dog’s coat. Fortunately, she is the cutest nugget in the world and is totally worth it. That being said….Mother’s Day Out starts next week (HALLELUJAH), and I’ll have 10 hours per week to myself. 10. Hours. That amount of time sounds like a million years to me right now, and I plan to take advantage of that. So–my dear READER (I know it’s only you, mom), I promise to post at least once a week, if not more. I’m also going to try and snap my meals more often–this one below was snapped last night, and I got a ton of requests from friends for the recipe. I’m not really sure this is what I used b/c I didn’t write it down, but it’s close enough. Serve it with some protein if you need it. I served it with the world’s most inedible salmon that tasted like canned cat food, so there’s no protein recipe to go with it. If you have any requests, let me know! My snap name is cshufsmity, so follow me there and let me know what you’d like. BONE APPLE TEA erryone.
I mean–she’s the cutest distraction ever-forgive me!
Easy Stir Fry
1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup sambal chili paste
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tbs sriracha
2 cloves garlic chopped
1tbs ginger (use that kind that comes in the tube in veggie section of grocery store)
Mix all the ingredients above together
Eggs, whisked (1 per person eating)
Toasted sesame seeds (around 1 tsp)
Cooked pasta (or any other starch–quinoa, rice, etc) I use those “carbo-nada” low carb ones: http://www.aldentepasta.com/product-categories/carbanada/
Wedge of lime
Fresh veggies-I used red bell pepper, broccoli and green beans. This is a great way to use up any leftover veggies. A pretty legit Thursday night fridge clean-out meal.
Get a skillet hot with a little bit of oil, add in veggies and cook for 5 minutes, then add in half the sauce. Cook another 5 minutes, make a little space and throw in some eggs and cook. Add in the noodles and rest of the sauce and cook for another few minutes! Top w sesame seeds and a squirt of lime juice! In the snapchat videos I added the noodles first, but I think it’d be better egg first, then noodles. That way, your noodles don’t overcook, and the egg gets that little crispy texture like in fried rice.
Also, in case you were wondering what I’ve been doing the last year, it’s been attempting to keep another human and a dog (and a husband, I guess) alive. YEAR ONE: SUCCESS
Doesn’t like cake. Sad day for all.
