~Sundays Supper Surprise~

This Sunday supper was a repeat of last Sunday supper. I enjoyed it so much that I choose to have it again this Sunday. We had chicken lo mein again but we also had shrimp lo mein. Best thing about this meal is that it so healthy for you. We used only fresh vegetables. We used olive oil instead of vegetable oil. When you get lo mein at restaurant, It tends to be a heavy and a little greasy. Its because they are using vegetable oil. Olive oil makes it not so heavy and greasy tasting.  Here is the recipes again, I hope you give it a try. You wont be disappointed.
