This does not mean Tim is becoming a vegetarian, He would never give up meat or wine entirely! We are making some small adjustments to our weekly menu, and measuring the results. An added perk is that it makes cooking for myself easier. Twice a week the whole family is eating the same thing!
Which brings me to last Thursday night. I created this dish on a whim, and I am incredibly proud of how it turned out. When asked, Tim said there was nothing he would change. Plus while it is packed with vegetables, it still has massive kid appeal. They could even help make it. It is that easy!
1/2 package Baby Carrots
1 package Shitake Mushroom
2 handfulls Snow Peas
1 Red Bell Pepper
1 bunch Green Onion
Bok Choy (I used 1 Baby Bok Choy)
1 package Udon Noodles
2-3 tbsp Sesame Oil
1/3 low sodium Soy Sauce
2 tbsp Honey
1/2 - 1 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (to taste)
