I think I had never had it because: we have only ever ordered Thai food once (which is when I tried it the first time) I don't really like tofu, ... read more

Chicken Chow Mein

Chicken Chow Mein - Quick and easy chicken chow mein that is better than takeout!

The downside to living with a food blogger is you don't often get to have the same meal twice!  I have a bad habit of never making things again, even if we love them, or at least not for a long while.  So now my family will make sure to tell me when something is such a winner that it needs to make it into the regular rotation, not just get lost in the list ... read more
