Dinner: Saturday, January 10

Shrimp Stir Fry with Asian Noodles
Total Cost:$4.75

While I was with my daughter at the library, I gave my husband the task of creating something wonderful for dinner. He spend two years in Taiwan and ten weeks in Japan. He's at his best in the kitchen when he cooks anything using bottles with Chinese characters on the label.

He cooked a bag of stir fry veggies, threw in a couple handfuls of frozen shrimp, created a sauce using aforementioned bottles of Chinese mystery sauces, and added some cooked noodles.

When we sat down to eat, it was heaven. It's such a simple meal: noodles, vegetables, sauce (made with garlic, ginger, soy sauce, sugar and sesame oil.) Most of us ate with forks, but Josh at with chopsticks.

P.S. Chinese mystery sauces can be found at your local Asian market. We love to buy authentic Chinese ingredients there, including noodles, soy sauce, sesame oil, hoisin sauce,and Josh's favorite: Chinese broccoli.
