Every New Years Eve, Jordan and I hang out in sweatpants eating Chinese food and watching action movies. We always get invited to parties but I love our little tradition, especially now that we have kids to get up with the next morning.
When we were first married we would get an assortment of food from our local Chinese Restaurant but now I like to try a new recipe every year to go with potstickers from The Fresh Market and take out Egg Rolls.
This year I wanted to make some Drunken Noodles, also known as Pad Kee Mao. It is one of my favorite dishes to order and it had been on my mind since I received Simply Nigella for Christmas which featured a delicious 10 minute vegetarian version. But for New years even I wanted to dress it up a little more and include some lean protein.
Since then we have made this dish at least four times. It is such a quick dinner and you can incorporate an vegetables you happen to have on hand. I love it with bok choy, asparagus, and bell peppers. We also discovered it is an amazing cold remedy! It was the only meal Jordan wanted to eat during a two week cold.
