Eating In: 2-Minute Noodles
So, what does a gal living on her own have for dinner when she's tired, CBF, and not particularly hungry? Hardly a lick of food in the house, even though pantry and freezer are chockers. Wow, a pack of 2-minute noodles. Hmm... some frozen vegies. Hm, I'm having an idea... it ain't pretty, but it's quick, and I'm guessing somewhat nutritious (or at least not UNhealthy).
Cook the noodles (without the packet flavouring) and let them drain thoroughly. Meanwhile heat oil in a wok, then add some crushed garlic, broccoli and cauliflower florets. Stir it all round for a few minutes (remember, frozen stuff has to thaw then heat... fresh would be SO much quicker but I never get through fresh stuff before it goes bad unless I buy tiny amounts and shop every couple of days and... well, yeah, anyway, I digress). Add the peas, corn and beans. Splash around some soy sauce, some honey, and a dash of sweet chilli. Keep it all moving until the vegies are heated through. Throw in the noodles and keep everything moving around until it's all hot. Then dish it up.
See, 2-minute noodles. But different.
