Eyeballing It

Last weekend I was home and my Dad made these delish noodles for dinner. It always fascinates me how my parents cook...I think I've only ever seen them look at a recipe for reference 2 or 3 times in my entire lifetime. Everything is "eyeballed"! That's what my mom said last weekend. When I cook any given cuisine, I eyeball about half the time, depending on how familiar I am with the style of cooking and the recipe itself (I try new recipes a LOT), but I cannot get the hang of doing this to cook Chinese food! I astound myself, because it's the food I grew up on, yet it's what I trust myself least with. There are only a few recipes I can make off hand...a spicy cucumber salad, fried rice...that's all I can think of!

Anyways, here are a few pictures of my dad serving up those eyeballed noodles =)
He usually throws in any random leftovers there are, and some fresh vegetables.
