Cook the Issue 2010: Ham Lo Mein with Snow Peas

By Pielove, member

December 7th, 2010

This is a fairly standard lo mein recipe, nothing earthshattering-- but in a good way, as my noodle-loving family (especially the kid) really enjoyed it.  My daughter liked it so much she requested the leftovers for lunch tomorrow.  The fresh ham is delicious here-- very tasty with the noodles.  My red bell pepper fell prey to a husbandly 'fridge cleanout, so we just have snow peas, which I left large for effect.

user-4713770 writes: My granddaughter would take the leftovers for lunch as well, good for you. I wasn’t sure about the seasoned ham for the lo mein and I would be tempted to toss in some shiitakes for whatever might be in the veggie bin, sorry about your red pepper.

Are you going to make the croquembouche. I wish that I had an excuse to make it, but I can’t justify that amount of work for just a few dinner guests, maybe a mini version would work for me, I'll consider that possibility. Reminds me that you might consider a kids version if you gather with lots of kids, made with donut holes, might even be good for a holiday breakfast buffet.
