I'm pretty sure this winter will go down as one of the strangest, weather-wise, in Northwestern Indiana. We didn't have very much snow. A couple of good days, but that's about it. Not a single snow day for the kiddos. We've had lots of rain. Recently some crazy wind and storms...fortunately tornadoes have passed us by, but completely ravaged some Indiana towns to the South. I kid you not, we even had a couple of days when it threatened to hit 70. Degrees. Fahrenheit. Strange.
Okay, not really. I do love rain. But I'm not the kind of girl that celebrates with bean sprouts.
I just happened to be planning this meal in honor of today's The Food Matters Project choice: Seared Bean Sprouts w/ Beef & Sesame Orange Sauce chosen by Dominica of Food Wine Love.
I wound up eating it over rice, though I think soba noodles would have been a good accompaniment, as well. And honestly, the kids...all three of them...didn't care for it. Hubs thought it was okay, like myself. I can honestly say this is the first non-memorable Bitty-inspired dish I've ever made. It was bound to happen one day...
This post is part of the Food Matters project: hosted by Dominica of Wine Food Love this week (where you can see the original Mark Bittman recipe).
