Maggi Mee Stir Fry

What was your first cooking experience like?

Mine started off with some simple instant noodles. Actually my favorite was the Ramen Char Mee from Myojo(?). I could devour 2 packets at one sitting!

This was probably one of the first REAL dish that I learned how to cook when growing up- Fried maggi mee (instant noodles) with egg. For some odd reason, it is sooo comforting and certainly still hit a good spot in me when it is fried up.

So it isn't as oily or delicious as a packet of instant noodles but at least some calories were saved. 

Some chicken, fresh veges and quick dinner is made. Best of all, it tastes better the next day.
*Slurp Slurp*

Maggie Mee Stir Fry (Stir Fry Instant Noodles)

Good question Daphne...what was the first meal I ever learned to cook? Hmm. Honestly, I cannot remember. I do remember living off of Top Ramen, and Baked potatoes in college. Does that count? Man, I have come a loooong way!

I love when you add vegetables to a pasta dish, making it that much healthier. The Ramen noodles are more attractive than the heavier pasta making a great looking dish.
Thanks for sharing with Presto Pasta Nights.
