I think two things are clear here.
I'm not going to win any awards for 1. food presentation or 2. food photography.
But the sweet and sour chicken did taste good.
Or so I'm reliably informed.
Since writing this post last year I have tried to keep things varied and interesting and not get too fed up when things don't go quite to plan.
I want to try and strike a balance between cooking things which I know are certs for a happy mealtime and will end with clear plates and keeping myself from being bored churning out the same old stuff.
Tonight was sweet and sour chicken and I decided to go down the noodle route instead of rice because noodles are loved and rice is tolerated and when you're doing something new teaming it with the preferred option makes things easier.
