Stir-Fried Pork with Noodles

Since mon mari prefers not to eat pasta, and I love pasta, I thought we could try a compromise.

He’s fine with rice.

Voila!

Rice noodles.

The selection of rice noodles at the Asian market is amazing. I had no idea they came in so many different shapes, widths and lengths

I’ve been working on a project.

I love working on projects. The problem is I normally get so engrossed that all else get sloughed off and ignored.

Today I decided to be a good girl.

I got all my chores done this morning, caught up on emails and other internet stuff, did my entire work-out and exercised the dogs.

A quick shower, lunch and I had a solid three hours to spend engrossed in my project.

I was just stepping out of the shower when the lights blinked.

Then they went off, came back on, went off, came back on, went off.

I heard thunder.

The lights stayed off.

Not only could I not work on my project (requires computer) I couldn’t do anything else.

It was a rather violent thunderstorm, the house was dark, the wind was blowing and we had no electricity.

Sigh…..

The best laid plans….

At least I won’t have to water tonight.

Ah yes…. The electricity was only off for about 90 minutes. But, when it came back on the washing machine wouldn’t work. It had been mid-cycle. So we had sopping wet, soapy clothes to deal with. Mon mari fixed the machine and all is back to normal.

Whatever normal is around here…..

  1. Sometimes, I think if you didn’t have bad luck (as the saying goes…)

    But the stir fry looks really yummy so it’s definitely going on my menu. And I’m glad you’re back online 🙂

  2. Kate, that’s summer in the country!

    nightsmusic, usually the storms here blow over quickly. That one was longer. Stir-fry was good.

    Brassfrog, we HAVE a generator…. He just kept saying that it would be on soon LOL
