This was a huge success and hit in the household.  Even my dad who ate the hour before; looked at it on his way out, to get a bowl and try.   My kids who wanted pizza, decided to split the homemade pizza (which I’ll share an easy recipe for in another blog entry), while they devoured this one.      The vi-bites was also a big hit as well as the peanut butter.

Please subscribe, like, and comment.  I would love to hear your feedback, if you love chow mein as I do, share with me in the comments below; the version you like to have.    I usually like to add chicken or ground beef to mine, but this one time it was solely vegetarian and the protein in it was from the peanut butter.
