Juicy flank steak and green bean stir fry over asian noodles tossed in a spicy, sweet, and sour sauce.
Have I mentioned it’s midterms and my brain is fried?
Who thought going back to get your masters while working full time was a good idea? T and I are both on our computers still and it’s past 8 PM. Well, technically I’m writing this, but he’s still finishing up our three hour supply chain management midterm. Did your eyes just glaze over? Same.
There is something about asian noodles that bring out the college kid in me. But now the school part is worse, but these noodles are way better 🙂
Try not to judge me for all the swirly, twirly noodle action shots. I was ravenous and this sauce is killer! It would be a crime not to try it first…
Now as a treat after midterms I will grab a glass of wine (or 4), eat my yummy asian noodles, and binge watch Fixer Upper 🙂 Is anyone else obsessed with Chip and Joanna Gaines? It’s one of my guilty pleasures along with the Kardashians. Sorry T!
