Honey Pork Noodle Stir fry

Just thought I would share with you a fantastic recipe I found from It is so quick and delicious and Michael quite often requests it :o)

Honey Pork Noodle Stir fry

300g lean pork (either thinly sliced schnitzel or lean pork mince)
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 onion, chopped
3-4 cups chopped seasonal vegetables: courgettes, capsicum, beans, scallopini, broccoli
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons crunchy peanut butter
2 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce
2-3 bundles dried noodles
3/4 cup chicken stock
2 tablespoons honey

1. Cook the noodles according to the packet directions.
2. While the noodles are cooking, heat the sesame oil in a wok or large frying pan. 
Stir-fry the pork, then add the onion and ginger and cook for 2-3 minutes, until onion is soft.
3. Add the soy sauce, honey, chilli sauce, peanut butter and stock, then toss in the vegetables and mix well, stir-fry until the vegetables are tender crisp.
4. Divide the noodles between four bowls and pile on the stir-fried pork and vegetables. 
Spoon over any additional sauce.

This recipe is for 4 so there is always left overs when I make it. They are great to reheat for lunch the following day. Enjoy :o)

The God Gap

For the past few months our family has been waiting to see what is ahead for us in 2011. With Michael accepted into his university course in Sydney we assumed that the house would sell and we would be moving down to NSW at the end of the year. Well the end of the year is now officially here and our house has been on the market for almost 5 months and nothing.

It has been a real challenge believing that God is in control of the situation and there has been many times when we decided that we could do a better job of the situation. God has had so much time to do what obviously needed to be done (in our minds anyway) and we were starting to loose faith that this house was even the miracle house it started out being. After days of struggling with the situation we came back to God and gave Him the situation yet again and decided if we go or stay another year here in Ipswich there will be a reason.

So here we are in the God Gap. Not really sure of where we are headed or how finances will work out, but content knowing that Gods timing is perfect and "He makes all things beautiful in His time."

There is a bridge in a song that reminds me that God is in control and in all things He is worthy of praise.

All of my life, in every season
You are still God
I have a reason to sing, I have a reason to worship.
