Who here loves Asian food?
It is my FAVORITE! I try to eat it as often as I can, but the hubby isn’t a huge fan so I don’t get it as much as I’d like. 🙁 It’s not that he won’t eat it, he just liked a ton other things more. I’m so happy that my kids enjoy it though because I still make it for dinner, and Lorin is nice enough to eat it when I do make it. (Picky, I know, but he says it’s “particular” and not pick) – HA!
The Asian recipes my kids enjoy most are the noodles and rice! They LOVE it, and I admit I do too. Recently, my mom found a recipe for Crock Pot Lo Mein, so she decided to give it a try. I suggested she throw in some edamame and snow peas, and the result was amazing! If you’re a huge fan of crock pot recipes like I am, as well as Asian recipes, then I definitely think you’ll enjoy this. It has chicken but can also be substituted for other meats like pork or beef. And you can always throw in other veggies you like more, like carrots or broccoli. It’s completely customizable to what you prefer, which is awesome
If you’d like to try out our Crock Pot Lo mein version, here’s the recipe. It’s YUMMY!
