operation: empty the fridge9:00 AM
Just like the post title says,my fridge really needed to be cleaned up a bit. I really wanted to make a meal out of stuff I already had so I got to brain storming. Honestly, I'm pretty proud of myself because I only had to buy one thing to make this meal. Everything else was either in my fridge or pantry.
So in my fridge/freezer I had half a bag of Tyson grilled chicken strips (I actually don't buy Tyson brand anymore because of a documentary I watched called, "Food Inc." you should check it out), two eggs, hoison sauce, plum sauce, sweet chili pepper sauce, and linguine/spaghetti. I bought some fresh broccoli to add some veggies to the mix. Total cost for the meal? Two bucks.
I grilled up the chicken to warm it, fried up the eggs, and boiled the pasta and broccoli together. Then I took the sauces and just mixed them together in equal parts to taste [a recipe my mom taught me]. Threw it all together in a wok and schazam! Some kick-butt stir fry.
It was soooo good. Mike loved it. I'm pretty proud of myself [I think I said that already]. I think I would even consider this part of my foodie challenge since it was the first time I did something without a written recipe from a book or online. Yay!
