Pizza & Pasta, What's for Dinner??

Vegetable Lo Mein

January 8, 2013

It’s that time of year again…

I live in a basement apartment and this means there will be a few months out of the year where my lighting is TERRIBLE in photos! I thought that maybe with my new handy photography gadgets I would be able to side step some of the issues I’ve had in the past, but it’s not looking so great… :0(

For the next month or so I’m asking that you please excuse my horrible lighting and still enjoy my recipes! Now back to our regular food post:

Yesterday I asked my Facebook followers what kind of recipe you wanted to see today… Sweet or savory? It was close, but I think the semi-healthy and savory won the toss.

This is great because my husband has the opposite resolution as me this year. He is looking to get healthy and eat less, while I am looking to expand my love for food and eat more. That is where this dish came in. I stumbled across it on “Can You Stay For Dinner“, and decided to adapt it to fit what ingredients we had on hand as well as our different tastes.

I’ll confess… We opted for the broccoli slaw because it was pre-cut. Anything that saves me time and dishes, is totally worth it in my book, especially after a long day. And honestly… you can’t even tell the difference!

Hopefully this meal will be some what healthy, man pleasing, easy to make, and just the savory dish you were all looking for. And if you were looking for even better meals to save you time, check out my Freezer Friendly meals. We freeze a lot of the stuff I make and use it on those days when I just don’t have the time or energy to get into the kitchen.

      Thank you Michelle! That’s so nice! I have a blog friend that talks up my food pics all of the time, and it puts on SO much pressure! It’s nice to get such a compliment from a reader :0)

    The G-SHOCK represented a new kind of watch that survived
    shaking and impacts. The time piece is good enough but cannot beat the clock.
    In fact a RISEMAN could sit in the dark for 20 months with
    no recharge yet still keep accurate time.
