Lo Mein-tenance Day

Wearing: I was going for easy, cute and comfortable today, and I knew that a great place to start would be this dress. I added a few of my favorite summer colors, and I quickly had an outfit. There are days when I like to take a lot of time to carefully plan what I’m going to wear and go through several options. Yesterday, however, was not one of those days.

Orange cardigan: Loft; dress: Merona, Target; belt: Old Navy; suede flats: Merona, Target

You see, I accidentally bought myself a new alarm clock. One that goes off at least an hour earlier than my usual wake up time, and one that doesn’t have a snooze button. It sounds like this: “squeak squeak squeak squeak squeak”. Yes, my new alarm clock is the new toy I bought for my dog Ellie. And yes, I hid that thing before I went to bed last night. I might be a slow learner, but at least I learn.

Eating: I started to make this meal on Monday night, but our power went out. We forced ourselves to go to Panzon’s, a Mexican restaurant, while we waited for the power to come back. So I had a mini case of déjà vu when I began to cook last night. Luckily, the power loss didn’t repeat itself.

I adapted this Chicken Lo Mein dish from Rachael Ray’s Book of 10. (If you can’t tell, I’m slowly trying to work my way through this cookbook. So I apologize in advance if you’re already tired of the Rachael Ray dishes.) 

I really loved how it turned out. The sauce (made with tamari, hoisin, and hot sauce) was so flavorful, and it would taste great with so many different ingredients. You could easily take out the chicken and add extra veggies (such as snap peas, cabbage, or carrots) to make this a vegetarian meal.
