We have been Social Distancing for the last 2 weeks. Although I know that restaurants are still open for pick-up and delivery we have been trying our hardest to avoid going out to lessen our own exposure since we all have loved ones that are in high risk groups for COVID-19.
This does mean that when a craving hits, we are at the mercy of our own recipe book to satisfy that craving. I woke up last week with a tiny thought of Chinese food in my brain and that thought kept getting bigger and bigger until I was begging Dave to dig through his long list of recipes to find something delicious.
We got the recipe up on YouTube, but since we both know that a blog can be easier to follow, we are going to start putting up both!
Check out the YouTube Video below, and keep scrolling for the full recipe on the blog.
