Anyone who knows me, knows I'm a creature of habit. I'm the biggest bedtime Nazi with my children, I eat a couple marshmallows everyday around 4pm, I drink the same green smoothie almost every morning... So it should really be no surprise that when I get Chinese food, I order the same vegetable lo mein every time. While perusing Pinterest last week, I saw this recipe and knew I had to give it a try! I really don't know how people cooked a variety of meals all the time before Pinterest happened. This recipe was absolutely delicious, and I'm always amazed when I make Chinese food at home and it taste like it's supposed to!
