I am allergic to the phone.
Seriously, this is a real thing. Right? Phone talking allergies?
I hate making phone calls! Talking on the phone is the worst. Honestly, the thought of it sometimes makes me want to throw a tantrum. Love text messages hate talking on the phone and voicemail. Voicemail is the worst! In fact, whenever we are considering ordering takeout OB, and I engage in some weird stand-off as to who is going to call and order take-out. Which, is why I kind of love Dominos, because I can order from a phone app. Don’t judge me!
So, what do you know if no one wants to call for take-out (debilitating phone allergy remember) and going out isn’t an option because, the schizo weather has decided to dump ice from the sky? You make your own take out! Also, going out requires real pants and I am a little attached to my pajama pants on Sundays, which is another reason to diy take-out.
Yes, my phone phobia is that serious. I prefer to make my own Chinese take-out than make a phone call or put on real pants on a Sunday. Am I alone in the phone phobia / real pants thing? This is normal behavior, isn’t it?
Ok fine let’s get back on topic…homemade take-out. Phone calls and real pants aside, let’s be honest homemade take-out just taste better and, you can tweak it to your taste.
This dish is so quick and easy you will have no problem making it instead of picking up the phone. It’s got a little spice, good sauce (You like the sauce? I like the sauce) and crispy fresh vegetables. Not to mention it’s a bowl of meaty tasty goodness. Serve it over rice or even better rice noodles. I kind of love rice noodles. Also, make extra because you know how Chinese is, you’ll want more 30 minutes later.
