Hoisin Pork with Rice Noodles

Can you believe we are already in March?  Easter is right around the corner and who can forget daylight savings time.  I really really wish they would just leave the time alone, so I don’t have to change every clock in my house, car and work.  Let’s not forget about losing that extra hour of perfect sleep this weekend.  As a mom I take every hour that I can get.  The only good thing about spring forward is I will have more time to take photos when I get off of work.

This past week I loaded up on groceries so I could make this hoisin pork with rice noodles.  I am a huge menu planner and that comes in handy while both of us are working.  The menu planner, grocery list and recipe holder I use is ZipList which can be accessed from my website at the top.  Cassie wrote a great article the other day about menu planning if you are interested.

I’m also in the process of reorganizing my kitchen pantry.  I will have a post after it is done showing all the work that I am doing so it doesn’t look like a complete mess.

    I love rice noodles and this looks perfect. :) I agree, I don’t like the change of time and changing all the clocks everywhere. Seems like there’s always one here and there that I forget about too. hahaha….I love menu planning. I used to do that and then my kids requests on whats for dinner messed up the plans and I haven’t done so for a while. I think I’ll have to pick it up again. Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend.
