Have you ever been so angry about something that you can’t think of anything else but that one thing? Even if its been resolved?
That’s me right now. I’m sitting here stewing and livid. I try not to have a lot of negative energy in life but our internet provider threw us for a loop yesterday and completely ruined our evening and wasted our time. I don’t like getting played!
I know there are worse things that could happen in life and I know we should be thankful that we have internet. I get all that. It’s just hard when you’re in the moment to think of how lucky you are, which is why I’m writing this now – so I can reflect on this later and be grateful.
ANYWAY. Sometimes you just have to laugh about it and let it go and eat a big bowl of ginger garlic shrimp noodle stir fry :)
This noodle stir fry is PACKED with flavor. If you like some heat in your food, then you’ll love this dish BUT the beauty of making your own meals is the fact that you can tweak to what you like. If you don’t like heat, you can easily omit the heat in this dish but if you like a lot of heat, you can add a lot! It’s very versatile.
I love the thick sauce that coats the noodles and the shrimp sprinkled throughout. You’re gonna love this dinner if this is on your menu!
Hold me. I’m going in!
