Cheater Chow Mein

12 oz. angel hair or thin spaghetti
4 Tbsp soy sauce        
2 Tbsp oyster sauce
1 Tbsp oil
1 chicken bullion cube, dissolved in 1/3 cup water
Optional additions:  scrambled egg, green onion, baby corn, bean sprouts, water chestnuts, chopped celery, chopped carrot, meats)

Cook noodles in water as directed on package.  Use oil so they don’t clump together.  Drain.  In non-stick pan, heat oil on high.  Add noodles and stir until fried as desired.  Add soy sauce, oyster sauce, bullion with water, and all additions.  Stir until vegetables are cooked and noodles are coated with sauce.  We like to use carrots, egg, celery, onions, and a tiny bit of sliced BBQ pork from Winco’s deli for flavoring.  Bean sprouts are really good too if you have them on hand.  The baby corn and water chestnuts make the meal more expensive, but add flavor and texture.
