We have things to talk about today people.
Things that will surely make your Monday a whole heck of a lot better.
Lemongrass Steak Noodle Bowls, to be precise.
But before we get too serious about food, how was everybody’s weekends?
I literally spent all of Saturday hungover, which is funny because you realize once you get to your mid-twenties that you can’t quite go out like you used to.
Before that, I hadn’t been out for a couple weeks. Call it November hibernation (why does it have to get dark out at 5pm though?!!!) or call it my workaholic nature, but I’ve literally had no plans for almost the whole month, which led to a dangerous splurge at Sephora and Aritzia on Black Friday (hey, work hard, play hard, right?!)
But I finally got out the house Friday and headed on downtown to celebrate another Friendsgiving (yes, I celebrated TWICE this year hehe) and went to a games’ bar over in Little Italy. So much fun and some much needed downtime.
But by 7pm Saturday I was back at home comatose watching reruns of Grey’s Anatomy and pigging out on burrito bowls (sadly, not homemade).
I know, my life is so exciting right?
Well, now I’m back again at my kitchen table, gearing up for another week full of food photoshoots and business planning, and not even knowing how I can get all my work done this week. I just have absolutely so much work, I can’t stand it. Somehow I thought it would be easier once I was done school…
Sound like anybody else’s Monday?
I can’t deal.
So, these Lemongrass Steak Noodle Bowls. They’re filled with all kinds of Vietnamese-inspired flavours and herbs, and ALL OF THE VEGGIES. Sweet potato, cilantro, corn, bell peppers, lemongrass, crispy shallots, crushed peanuts, steak seared with red curry paste and a sweet chili sauce to tie it all together.
I’m dying over these.
I actually have a version of them waiting for me in the fridge for lunch from last week’s meal prepping efforts, and I’ve been salivating over them all morning. I still can’t wait for lunch.
That counts as lunchtime right?
