Pineapple Chicken Stir Fry

Pineapple Chicken Stir Fry

I’m gonna say it now: stir fry must be the most versatile meal there is. Get a pan really hot (even though mine can’t get as hot as my mom’s cast iron wok), throw in whatever meat and vegetables you want, and then work out some sort of spicy, sweet, salty sauce.

I’m not trying to say this to dissuade you from ever following a stir fry recipe (especially this one!), but I think it’s the perfect way to use up vegetable odds and ends in a cohesive dish.

And adding pineapple and lo mein noodles to it? Serious win.

I almost always add pineapple into my stir fry, but this was the first time I’d ever used noodles instead of rice. I might never go back! And the noodles cook in 4 minutes… much easier than 20+ minutes for rice!

Sweet and Spicy Scrambled Eggs

Sweet and Spicy Scrambled Eggs

Confession: I never owned nor understood sriracha until a month ago. I still have never even bought the stuff; my roommate bought the bottle (sorry I’m using it all, Meredith). Now I can’t stop putting it on top of every dish I make, and I’m constantly looking up others I could use it in. This sweet/salty/spicy combo with sriracha, brown sugar, and soy sauce has been my one and only craving lately. Top it off with fresh cilantro and the crisp bite from green onions, and it’s absolute perfection.

I got home from the gym dying for protein today, and I made Beth from Budget Bytes’ Dragon Noodles. They were delicious, but I needed more food afterwards. I wanted to eat the same thing, but had no more noodles! So I got a little creative and put my own spin on it by using the same flavors to make sweet and spicy scrambled eggs. This dish would make a great breakfast, lunch, or late night snack. And it can be easily doubled, tripled, quadrupled… heck, make it for a crowd! Oh, and it takes less than 5 minutes. You’re welcome.
