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.
