Chicken Lo Mein - A Noodle Experience
I ordered lo Mein, and as I took a bite, I took photos. My coworker was still giggling about it hours later. Well, I protested, how am I going to remember what is supposed to be in it if I don't take pictures.
It was basically noodles, covered with a gravy.
I used two frying pans. One for noodles, and the other for frying the vegetables. The vegetables were were started before I started the water for boiling. I wanted to make sure the vegetables had time to start to brown before I added the chicken and mushrooms.
Just before adding the noodles, I mixed the sauces and gravy together and dumped the sauce into the vegetables. The noodles take 3 minutes into the boiling water
So now, I have made the decision to make my own. I have a snack size bags of frozen chopped celery and frozen sweet pepper. I'm going to fry my vegetables together after I chop them all up so for now I will just accumulate the chopped bits in a bowl.
Brussels sprouts, sweet onion, pieces of onion tops, frozen carrot shreds, fresh baby carrots sliced the long way.
I sliced some cooked chicken tenders into chunks. There is some brown gravy and bottles of oyster sauce, Thai Chili sauce, and soy sauce.
Oh, and lo mein noodles.

Oops. Do not dump noodles from package into water. These noodles have bundle wraps on them, which need to be removed before cooking. My bad.
