Satay Pork Noodle bowl

I find one of the best ways to get inspiration for my meal planning and cooking is to look through books and magazines. A favourite of mine are the Coles and Woolworths magazines as I find that they are always up to date with the latest trends as well as exploring seasonal ideas for food. When I got back from interstate and was doing my shopping, I picked up the latest Coles magazine, it was an Easter Special. I headed to the pub that afternoon for a cold beer off the tap, so I took it with me and decided to have a flick through to get some ideas. One of the recipes I came across looked like it had a Vietnamese twist to it and I love Vietnamese food so I decided on that for last weekend. I had all of the ingredients but randomly I didn’t feel like cooking (shock horror) so I froze the mince and took it out again as one of my friends was coming over for Anzac Day afternoon so decided we could make it and enjoy it together. The preparation was half the fun for this meal as we got to have a beer, cut the veggies and put it all together in a bowl. I love how colourful the dish turned out and that as well as getting your protein and veggie serves, you also get a bit of spice from the chilli flakes in the mince and the satay sauce.
