Do you ever sit and wonder how you can meet a complete stranger, yet tell them your whole life story in about 30 minutes or less? How did you meet your husband? How many kids? Where did you grow up and go to college? What do you do now? How do you succeed being a blogger?
These are questions that I answer all the time when talking to strangers and I freely give them up. However, a loved one can ask us a question and we keep it bustled inside for “what feels like eternity.” I wonder if it’s the fact of knowing we may never see them again and we comfortable in knowing that and sharing our story. Or maybe we want to know more about them and we feel like we have to indulge in order to hear all about their life and everyday bearings.
If you have an answer to these questions please feel free to let me know.
Right now I’m in Cleveland with the American Dairy Association. As you can tell from my story above that I probably was a rambler on the plane to the lady sitting next to me. (You may even be reading this since you got my blog name) Thanks for letting me talk to you about my life.
Before I left I cooked up this simple Pork Stir Fry Noodle Dish. It was meant to be for the whole family but my hand was a little heavy on the red pepper flake side so I fed them something else. I did alter the recipe to reflect a little less heat in this dish. My husband and I both ate this for leftovers but I highly recommend eating it right away. There is something about day old noodles that never really settles quite right with me. You can also substitute the pork with chicken, shrimp or just more vegetables for a vegetarian meal.
In a large saute pan add olive oil over medium heat. Add the ground pork and cook until brown. Remove from heat and drain the extra juices from the pan. Place meat on a separate plate.
While pork is cooking add 5 cups of water to a large pot. Bring to a boil and add in stir fry rice noodles. Remove from heat and allow to cook for 10 minutes or cook according to package instructions. Rinse under cold water to stop the cooking.
In a bowl combine sugar, fish sauce, soy sauce and red pepper flakes.
In the pork saute pan add beaten egg and scramble on low heat. Add the cooked pork, noodles and then drizzle the sauce over the top. Stir in peanuts, green onions and cilantro.
