meat and vegs - chicken +vegs or beef w/vegs (broccoli/green peppers spicy).. ..or just the veggies. ..or the soups! :)

I love fried rice. Anything you add in is delicious.

there are times that i'm known to get a craving for fried rice, so that would be my choice - but i don't know the last time that i acted on the craving to actually get it. i like the idea that i can get it all veggie and not have to worry about knowing what's in my food. Also, i'm not really a noodle person, so that would kind of defeat the purpose of chow mein.

Neither! These are both really bad for you, arent they?

Veggie fried rice, it's so good! I usually take most of it home and have it for lunch and snack the next day. So good the next day. :D

I prefer fried rice because the greasiness of chow mein makes me incredibly dizzy. I love soup noodles though!

I LOVE fried's my big splurge when I order Chinese. Normally, I get steamed veggies but when I really want something yummy, it's always pork fried rice :)

Why must we always have such hard choices. Love them both - love the Chinese any way I can get it. All other Asian is just as scrumptious!

Fried rice. No explanation it's just always my go to between these two options. But like faerymagick15, I'm now a steamed brown rice girl.

I love both, but I don't eat either anymore! If we have Chinese food from takeout I get steamed rice with my meal. If I make it at home I use brown rice.
