Went to the Walgreens next door for a bottle of soy sauce. They had five different brands of mayo but no soy sauce.
Meanwhile, the Chinese liquor store across the street had it. And really good red bean ice cream bars YEEEEAAAAAH.
PS. I was gonna get so much shit done this weekend now that finals are over but instead I gotta deal with a swollen-ass ankle from hell.
Look at this clumsy fucking nerd.
Curry Lo Mein Style Dinner
1 chicken breast
1 onion, sliced
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 teaspoons curry powder
2 teaspoons corn starch
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup beef broth
1 carrot sliced very thin
8 ounces pasta
2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
oil for cooking
Cook pasta according to directions and then toss with sesame oil. In a small bowl mix together soy sauce, curry powder, corn starch, sugar, garlic powder and beef broth. In a large (deepish) cast iron skillet heat a little oil (I used coconut oil) and cook the onions over low heat for about 7 minutes until soft. Add the chicken and cook thoroughly. Remove chicken and onions from heat. Add additional cooking oil and cook the carrot over medium high heat for a couple of minutes add the cooked pasta noodles to the pan with the carrots adding additional oil if needed to coat the noodles. Cook for a couple of minutes. Add the soy sauce mixture to the skillet and stir to coat (the sauce will thicken up) then add the chicken/onion mixture. Stir quickly and let cook for a minute or so until heated through.
So I’ve been doubling this recipe lately as my go-to “man, I wanna make a lot of food all at once without having to go to the store for fresh ingredients,” since I pretty much always have chicken in the freezer and a bag of onions. Sometimes I leave out the carrots, but I usually have those, too.
