Catching Up & Lo Mein Recipe

Man, I feel like this last month has just been crazy. Our Decembers always get very busy and it seems like once we hit December 1st it is until after Jaxson's birthday until we can catch our breathes again. Not to mention we have had pink eye and now we are all fighting nasty colds.

I am soooo behind on the blogs I follow so if you have had any important news that I have missed please leave me a comment so I don't miss out on it. I'm trying to catch up but I'm pretty behind.

Now for the Lo Mein recipe I promised you. I personally do not add any meat to this but you can add pork, beef or chicken to it. Everyone loves this recipe and it's one of those recipes you can make up, throw in the crock-pot for a few hours and it turns out even better. Hey Rett, have you found your crock-pot yet???

Lo Mein
6-8 servings

1 pound spaghetti
3/4 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup soy sauce
2 teaspoons sugar
2 Tablespoons peanut oil
2 pork tenderloins (about 2 pounds), thinly sliced - REMEMBER I do not use meat so you don't have to add this.
8 scallions, thinly sliced
2 carrots, sliced diagonally
1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
1/2 pound fresh snow peas, trimmed

1. Prepare the spaghetti according to the package directions; drain and keep warm in large serving bowl.
2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the chicken broth, soy sauce, and sugar; mix well and set aside.
3. In a large skillet, heat the oil over high heat. Add the pork and cook until no pink remains, stirring constantly.
4. Add the scallions, carrots, mushrooms, snow peas, and the chicken broth mixture. Stir-fry for 3-5 minutes, or until the vegetables are crisp-tender. Toss with spaghetti and server.

I just added another giveaway link at my other blog for a Melissa & Doug toy so go to check it out. The link is on my sidebar.
