Fried Curried Noodles

I was flattered to find out just how many of my friends read my blog. I appreciate all your advice and I took it to heart- I contacted this chick yesterday and told her that despite the awkwardness, I would enjoy seeing her again. It took her a full 25 hours, but she called me to say that she saw me as a friend only. I know what that means and I don't need another friend anyway, so I thanked her for calling, wished her luck with grad school and will most likely never see her or speak to her again. Oh well, I'm basically 27; if I can't take a little rejection, then what have I been doing my whole life?

So here I am, attempting to listen to every version of "Sexual Healing" that Spotify has to offer while relishing in a most exemplary dinner. This is not good break-up food (which is good, because we would've had to have been together in order to have broken up)... it's just good food!

Fried Curried Noodles



Sesame Oil
4 Cloves of Garlic Minced
Block of Ginger Minced
Dashes of Cumin
Dashes of Coriander
Dashes of Turmeric
1 Onion Diced
1 Green Bell Pepper Diced
2 Carrots Diced
1/2 lb. Steak Chopped into Tiny Cubes
0.54 lb. Shrimp Diced
2 Jalapenos Diced
1/2 Bunch Cilantro Cut Up
Spoonful of Sesame Seeds
Handfuls of Bean Sprouts
Salt and Pepper
2 Small Bunches Rice Noodles
Splash of Soy Sauce
Splash of Fish Sauce
Splash of Oyster Sauce
Spritz of Sriracha
Juice of 1 Lime

Heat some oil while bringing water to a boil. Fry the Garlic, Ginger, Cumin, Coriander, Turmeric, and Sesame Seeds. After a few minutes add about half of the Onion and 1 Jalapeno. Put the Rice Noodles in the boiling water. Put the Beef into the spiced mixture. Drain the Rice Noodles and add them to the spiced Mixture. Add the Bell Pepper, Carrots, rest of the Onion and Jalapeno. Pour in the Soy Sauce, Fish Sauce, Oyster Sauce, and Sriracha. Add the Shrimp. Let cook for moments. Add the Cilantro and Bean Sprouts. Salt and Pepper to taste. Love this dish! Squeeze in the juice of one lime.

By the way, somehow (***cough cough fellow teacher!!!***) my students found out that I brew beer. Never! I don't know what you're talking about. Isn't that illegal (uh, not since the 70's...)... My regular kids know the deal. They know it's true. My advanced students can't believe it. One said "I can't imagine Mr. Tommy K drinking alcohol; he seems like he'd be afraid of a soda!" I feel like Batman being unmasked. It doesn't feel good. Also, it's like "Hey dude, I'm the Batman, today's not a good day to lie to me, I think I'll be doing the face punching," you know?
