The purpose of What’s For Dinner? is to provide you a recipe with items on sale this week, with no more than 10 ingredients (not including pantry items), and coming in at under $10 per meal.
Hubs has an addiction to cooking Chinese/Thai food.
And most of the time it tastes like Midwestern Ethnic Food…edible, but not something you wanted an additional helping of…if you know what I mean
To be honest, there are only two recipes (out of the 100 he has tried) that rate for me – Crockpot Mongolian Beef and Sesame Chicken.
So when Hubs offered to make Sesame Noodles, I responded with.. “Sure, baby.”
But what I was thinking was…”For the love of Cashew Chicken, GIVE IT UP and let’s go to Pei Wei.”
But as he has done over the 14 years of marriage – he surprised me and it is now one of my favorite go-to meals. Hope you enjoy it too.
