I can't be bothered but easy peasy noodles

There are days when I have no ideas on what should I be cooking. Generally, those are days when we are in a rush or had a tough day out there and being infront of the kitchen stove just doesn't seem too appealing.

On those days, fried noodles are usually on the agenda. It's quick, easy and require little washing up. I call them the "I can't be bothered but easy peasy" noodles. =)

I can't be bothered but easy peasy Noodles aka Fried Noodles (serves 4)
250 grams of Singapore noodles blanched with hot water
2 celery sticks
1 red capsicum chopped
1 carrot diced
1 small onion chopped
2 lup chong or chinese sausages, sliced
1 tablespoon of bean sauce
1 tsp of sugar
1/4 cup of huo tiao cooking wine
2 beaten eggs

1) Saute Chinese sausages. Drain some of the oil. Set it aside.

2) Fry the onion till transparent. Add carrot, capsicum and celery. Saute for around 2 minutes. Add noodles. Keep tossing. Add the bean sauce. sugar and wine. Fry it up!

3) Push noodles aside and add beaten egg. Cook till slightly set and start tossing in the wok. Remember to include in the chinese sausages. Serve with fried shallots.

I'm sharing this with my friends at Pasta Presto Nights. This week, Got no milk is hosting.

I always wondered what 'Singapore noodles' are ... are they egg noodles? When I can't be bothered, my meal is some food that I can send to the microwave for 3 minutes, keke
