Beef Lo Mein & Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge
My sister in-law Dawn is having her second child this coming Monday. I can't say I know how she's feeling but I know that being pregnant in this crazy hot weather is not easy. I wanted to bring her some noodles since she really likes the Asian foods I make. For the Beef Lo Mein, I used the recipe from Steamy Kitchen since it's very similar to the noodle my mom makes. I added scallions and swap out the Chinese broccoli with frozen stir fry veggies. For the noodles, instead of dry noodles I used the fresh Chinese egg noodles from the local Chinese grocer. I also made Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge since I was craving chocolate. I used recipes of peanut butter fudge and regular chocolate fudge then cut each recipe in half since I didn't want to end up having 5 lbs of fudge.
