I am now posting Tasty Attempts every other Tuesday. The posts will include a variety of recipes, maybe some of them turn out tasty, maybe others are failed attempts.
On the weekends we usually let Munchkin pick what we are having for dinner, it encourages him to make good food choices and he is more likely to eat dinner if he picks and helps prepare it. But lately all he has been asking for is Pizza or Steak and my Hubby was really disappointed last weekend because he wanted Chinese takeout. So this weekend I thought I would make something on Saturday for him and let Munchkin choose. Funds have been tight with some bathroom repairs so I decided to find a recipe and surprisingly enough we had nearly everything needed to make both these recipes.
I chose to make a Chicken Lo Mein and Mushroom Fried Rice, both I found on Pinterest. They were easy enough to make but did take a lot of ingredients and prep work. The Chicken Lo Mein was okay, the fish sauce was a little over powering and I didn't have quite the right noodles, Munchkin did love it though and gobbled it down. The Mushroom Fried Rice though was out of this world! I will definitely be making it again!
