It’s Monday and I just got back from my staycation and girl’s weekend. I was craving Lo Mein and rummaged through the fridge. . but nothing. My husband did go grocery shopping. . but purchased English muffins, bread and butter. Ha! No vegetables in the fridge.
This recipe is great and super versatile. Add a protein: pork, chicken or beef. . or add more vegetables. . if I had bok choy or broccoli, I would have been SO HAPPY.
Bottom line: use this recipe as is, or add to it! I hope you enjoy!
