Take-Out, Fake-Out: Mongolian Beef
Chinese take-out always gets the best of us. You’re tired when you come home from work and you have kids & husbands whining (haha) that they’re hungry. What’s the easy thing to do? Pick up the phone and call take-out. I mean, I won’t lie, I’ve done it numerous times. Panda Express is literally 2 minutes from my house and some nights I’m like “screw it, let’s go get some.” It happens, but you can’t let it happen one too many times cause that stuff just isn’t good for you and it starts to show in numerous parts of your body ;)
So this past weekend I went to my first dress fitting. It went pretty well. The dress fits like a glove. The seamstress only has to hem it and put in a bustle. Which is great, except when it’s all zipped up, I have back cleavage. Haha, it’s such a funny term but it’s actually a real good description of back fat. All I gotta do is just lose probably 5 pounds and I should be good to go. If I lose any more weight, then I’m going to have to get the dress taken in and I don’t want to spend more money for that!
No more greasy take-out until after the wedding ;) until then, I can most definitely suffice with this take-out, fake-out mongolian beef. This thing is KILLER and tastes amazing. I swear Jason and I each had two bowls of it (oh yeah, portion control needs to kick in haha). It makes a lot so leftovers for lunch or dinner the next day is super awesome! I love having leftovers of delicious meals :) makes it feel like cooking the meal was well worth it!
Oh, so the best part of this? You can have this on your table in less than 30 minutes. I sound like Rachael Ray, don’t I? I didn’t mean to, but I had to get my point across, lol
