Teriyaki Turkey Stir Fry with Egg Noodles

I cannot remember if I mentioned that it was school holidays here at the moment... nearly one week down and one more to go! I had the first three days of the week off with the children whilst Noel has had today and will have tomorrow also. We will do the same next week. I must say that I am enjoying the fact that I am only working 2 1/2 days out of the normal week. LOL!!

As we do when either of us has the day off - the person at home cooks dinner. So it was Noel's turn tonight. As per usual his dinner was yummy and filling and went down a treat with the kids (always a good thing!)

We had some turkey breast strips in the freezer, that I had bought but to date had turned my nose up to.. only as I have never eaten turkey other than Roast Turkey with all the trimmings on Christmas Day!! Normally you would only ever see turkey in the supermarkets in December but recently there are quite a few turkey products available, such as drumsticks, stir fry strips and even turkey sausages. Funnily enough they are normally found next to the Kangaroo products! Anyway with Noel in charge, turkey was on the menu.

I usually serve my stir frys on rice but seeing yours on noodles is going to make me change how I serve it.
