Spicy Drunken Noodles (21 Day Fix Approved)

We returned home from a mini-vacation yesterday and after 2 days of eating out, I was sooo ready to get cooking again. I left the menu up to my 9 year old, and he chose these drunken noodles. They were a hit last time we made them and to be honest, I think he was just looking for a reason to eat some shrimp! Both my boys have developed a love for shrimp and this recipe does the trick!

The whole meal takes about 20 minutes start to finish, is full of flavor, and approved by the whole family. Plus it totally works for 21 Day Fix, as long as you use these awesome brown rice noodles. I order mine from Amazon!

And in case you're wondering WHY they are called "Drunken Noodles", apparently they are best enjoyed with an ice cold beer - I will have to try this combo next time!

Inspired by Spicy Thai Noodles

Our little vacation was pretty amazing - nothing fancy, just a trip up to our lake house to open it up for the season and have some down time. These boys were right at home....a place where boys can boys and dogs can be dogs. I'm not sure who was more excited to be there or who was more sad to go. We all had a blast and are counting the minutes until we head back up!
