20190121 hoisin meatball lo mein nm 2.jpg?ixlib=rails 2.1

The flavors in this noodle stir-fry are about as different as you can get from Monday's Spanish-inspired meal, but it uses leftover meatballs as a protein.
Smarts: Slice the meatballs into quarters before cooking so that they will heat up faster (and will be all the better if you're using chopsticks to eat them!).

So quick and easy. Really nice use of leftover meatballs. Flavor didn’t wow me, but was pretty good.

Delicious “healthy” lo mein Used snap peas instead of snow, rice noodles because it’s what I had, and added cashews. Great left overs.

This was okay. Used cashew butter, tasted okay on the veggies. Think the whole 30 bs were a challenge for me here.

I liked this, but would almost double the veggies - particularly the mushrooms.
