On my way to 100 recipes in 100 days. Here is recipe 86: Chicken and Spring Vegetable Lo Mein.
Its no secret that I love Asian food. But until recently, I have never tried to cook it myself. I usually would order in or go out to enjoy my favorites. I think it may be dangerous that I have now found two great recipes.
My daughters love any kind of noodles….so this was a fun dinner for them. I used chopsticks and they slurped their noodles. We all enjoyed it.
