Drunken Noodles

So, much to my surprise, the almighty bathroom scale did not curse at me this morning when I stepped on it. Don't get me wrong, it noted with protest the extra junk I ate this weekend, but it didn't try to use scare tactics or otherwise shock and awe me into submission.

So how do I reward it?

A peer of mine at work has just returned after a long health-related absence. We took her for Thai food at my favorite Thai restaurant, and though I lingered long over the healthier options I just couldn't deny my true favorite dish there -- the Drunken Noodles. From the menu:
Fresh wide noodles stir-fried with ground chicken, egg, onion, carrots, green peppers, basil, and scallions.
I'm not sure what they are drunk on, but it's good stuff. It's not exactly a salad and a yogurt, my usual workday meal, though....

Still, if you could taste it, you'd agree it was worth it.

Man, making me hungry. Mental note not to read blog posts immediately before supper

So you are officially under 200? That is AWESOME!

And the subwoofer looks like a nice footrest.
