January 23, 2006
Look I'm a simple guy. I'm no masterchef so when I'm peckish at 4.30 am in the morning and I'm on a diet (ie living off fresh fruit, veg and chicken breast coupled with the odd glass of skimmed milk/OJ), it's difficult to decide what to cook.
Luckily, I had a few packets of Amoy's straight to wok noodles. Admittedly I've never been a fan of Amoy's noodles but they were a lifesaver. A surprisingly calorific lifesaver! So I limited myself to one 150g sachet and vowed to learn how to make fresh noodles myself, so as to avoid the nastiness of Rapeseed/Palm oil.
Now, noodles, fried in a tiny puddle of olive oil (somewhat unorthodox I know)aren't going to be the best thing you've ever tasted. Dark soy sauce to the rescue. A couple of minutes frying in the pan, then I splashed in the soy sauce (practically calorie-free :D but high in salt content :'() and about a minute later I had a perfect little dinner/breakfast (and a smoke-filled kitchen) with the cost of about 190 Kcs.
But, I have to give everyone two tips:
1) Don't lather your food with dark soy sauce if it's on high heat. (Or at least turn off your smoke-alarms before you do)
2) Don't leave a bag of sweet-peppers next to a radiator when you bring in your shopping then forget about them… and turn on the heating. DOH. – The bag filled with toxic-slime a day or two later is certainly not pleasant. Nor deliciously aromatic >_<.
