In case there aren’t enough posts with the word “noodly” in them, here’s another one.

Asian Noodly-Type Stuff

TA DAAAAAAAAA

TA DAAAAAAAAA

L made this tasty dish from a leftover veggie tray from a party. It feeds several hundred.

Or two people for a few days.

Or one REALLY HUNGRY PERSON.

Anyway,

YOU WILL NEED:

  • Veggie tray stuff (we used 1 handful each of diced green, red, and yellow peppers, carrots, celery, and cherry tomatoes.)
  • 1 onion, also diced.
  • 3 cloves of minced garlic (in fact, just dump in a spoonful or so of the jarred stuff.)
  • Whatever leftover spaghetti you have. If you have a new box, guess, or use one of these amazing things.
  • Chicken breast(s) (2 works fine, we only had one.)
  • olive oil or veg. oil
  • salt and pepper
  • ginger powder
  • bottled teriyaki sauce

WHAT TO DO:

  1. Boil a big ol’ pot of water, then boil the pasta.
  2. Sauté onion, garlic, and oil in a large skillet until soft.
  3. Toss in the rest of the veggies, then let them get soft. WHILE THAT’S HAPPENING:
  4. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and a bit of oil, and pan-sear. (Cook until brown on the outside and cooked through. Basically until it looks like chicken.)
  5. Slice chicken into bite-size pieces.
  6. Pour the teriyaki sauce (1/2 to 3/4 cup) in with the vegetables, mix it on up.
  7. Add the drained spaghetti and mix.
WOOO SO FANCY

WOOO SO FANCY

Enjoy!

Ridiculously Easy Beef Stuff

Hi, YPHers!

J here, to tell you how to make beef stroganoff, but more importantly:

THAT RAW MEAT IS AWFUL AND DISGUSTING

AND

HATE IT

I HATE IT

I HATE IT.

Ok. That’s done.

Now on to stroganoff!

YOU WILL NEED:

  • a crock pot
  • 3 cans of condensed cream-of-mushroom soup
  • 1 cup of sour cream
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • a packet of dry onion soup mix (1 ounce)
  • 1 package of stew meat (2 lbs.) (bleh. bleh. bleh.)
  • 1 package of egg noodles

WHAT TO DO:

  1. Mix together everything except the meat and noodles in the crock pot.
  2. Take on the inevitable task of opening the meat package and dumping it into the crock pot. (L managed to find some that came pre-cut into cubes, saving me from having to touch the stuff too much. Is this an irrational dislike? Maybe.)
  3. Mix all o’ that together with a wooden spoon.

Put ’em together and whaddya got?

UNSPEAKABLE BLOODY DEMON-SLURRY OF DEATH!

Tasty, right?

Wrong.

Bleh.

BUT:

Cook it on HIGH for 3 hours, put it over some cooked egg noodles, and you get:
