Lo Mein

This is a recipe that we have used a lot and made to fit our taste. You can make it spicy or mild whatever your taste, just adjust the amount of chilies that you use. If you do not have chilies on hand we have used crushed red pepper flakes with good results. We have also used frozen stir fry vegetables with good results. If you or a family member dislikes one of the vegetables you can omit it and add something that everyone likes.
