December Cooking Challenge Update

So, how did we go this week? Well ... I kind of met the challenge! I said that last week too didn't I, but it's for different reasons this week!

Sunday night - I had Steak and pasta and vegies. Actually this was leftovers from Friday night. My son had noodles.

Monday night - Hungry Jacks - Uh-oh, it looks like a pattern forming! I had this last Monday night as well.

Tuesday night - Chicken marinaded in Red Wine and Garlic sauce, served with rice and vegies

Wednesday night - Veal schnitzel, chips and vegies

Thursday night - nothing. This is where I am saying I am not sure if I met the challenge, because for me the challenge is as much about not buying take away every night of the week as it is about finding new recipes! I didn't have anything because I was still full from our work Christmas lunch.

Friday night - McDonalds. We weren't eating until late because my son had his first school disco.

Saturday night
- Chicken curry noodles.

The chicken curry noodles is a recipe that I cooked two or three times about 5 or 6 years ago, and I thought I would pull out the recipe and make again. Wouldn't you know it, I couldn't find the darn book, so I ended up just improvising but it tasted really good so I might make it again! I was a bit worried that it would be a little dry but as long as the chicken isn't overcooked it was fine!

I cut 500g of boneless chicken into strips, and marinaded it for an hour or so in 2 tablespoons of green curry paste (like you would use in Thai cooking).

Stir fry the chicken, and then add some snow peas.

Prepare a packet of fresh Hokkien Noodles as per the instructions and then toss with the chicken and snow peas and serve!

Simple but yummy, and I am thinking relatively healthy but you might not want to quote me on that!
