Soba noodle chow mein
Still calling in for those guest posts, if you want to do the blogger questionnaire leave me a comment on this post and I’ll email it to you, so we can have it on this blog when I am on my vacation.
I love Chinese, I mean I really love it! I fail to understand how can restaurant made Chinese food taste so good, may be it is the crappy sauces laden with sodium that they use. But the homemade version never tastes just the same. Today I was in the mood for Chinese but did not want to eat any thing that was full of fat and sodium, so I decided to make some at home. Now right at the start I knew I’ll be mentally soothed that I ate Chinese but those taste buds would still want the restaurant version, but this chow mein hit the spot. I cleaned my noodle bowl and since I am a pig, I cleaned the skillet in which I cooked the chow mein too 😉
