Chicken and Veggie Lo Mein


Chinese take-out is a wonderful thing. Even more wonderful is making it at home with all of the ingredients of your choice! This sauce is salty and full of Asian flavor. You can use whatever veggies strike your fancy, just choose the ones you like best! Bean sprouts are one of my Asian faves, as a matter of fact I had to go to THREE different grocery stores because the first two were out. I squeeled with joy when I snagged the last bag at the third store, I know, I’m a little wacky. 🙂

  2. Ha! Maybe it was less of a squeal and more of a sigh of relief that my two extra stops paid off and weren’t for nothing!! 🙂
