Apologies for possibly the most petty AIBU ever, but DP and I just had a huge row about this!

When I do a stirfry, it is some combination of meat and/or veg with noodles or rice and a sauce. DP thinks that stirfried meat and/or veg in a sauce is a perfectly acceptable meal hmm

AIBU or is he nuts?

I would always do some noodles with it, seems a bit unfinished otherwise.

KatAndKit Mon 10-Oct-11 19:35:11

Yes, it needs noodles!

troisgarcons Mon 10-Oct-11 19:35:12

Ummm I only do meat and veg.

Definitely noodles or rice needed too.

RitaMorgan Mon 10-Oct-11 19:36:27

Is that a complete meal then troisgarcons? Just meat and veg?

DH does veg and meat with a bit of rice but I prefer noodles sad

And as he cooks and I don't he gets rice lol

Deffo rice or noodles.

Or sometimes I go all out & have a jacket potato!!

It depends on if you are doing the no carb thing or not. Personally I would have a small amount of noodles or rice, as I don't feel a meal is complete without some form of carbs.

Essential to have noodles or rice with it IMO.

i would put beansprouts in, but no rice or noodles..

KatyMac Mon 10-Oct-11 19:39:17

KatyMac Mon 10-Oct-11 19:39:34

You need noodles or else, where are the lovely filling carbs?

TiggyD Mon 10-Oct-11 19:42:08

I go for extra veg to keep calories down. Usually bean-sprouts.

I've just had one grin with noodles but I have been known to make it with just beansprouts.

of course it has rice or noodles... wouldn't be a proper stir-fry without.

does your DP also have a roast without potatoes?

how weird!

Viagrafalls Mon 10-Oct-11 19:42:46

noodles or rice, definitely!

troisgarcons Mon 10-Oct-11 19:44:11

You havent seen the size of my stirfrys .... mind you now I think about it - at work they have noodles. Cant say I ever thought about doing them at home. I shall ponder this.

Meat and veg with bean sprouts is nice... lower carbs I would think. Good if you are trying to cut them out a bit.

Mmmm... I want bean sprouts now.

RitaMorgan Mon 10-Oct-11 19:46:50

None of us are trying to cut calories or go low carb... I don't think a carb-less dinner is filling enough for a toddler either.

Bean sprouts come under the veg heading in my book!
