Even though there is still nothing in my refrigerator, I knew I could do better than just throwing everything into a pan and calling it a meal.
So I actually planned a real dinner for myself tonight.
The pot to my left was full of heating water, the pot to my right full of what was to become noodle flabor. A little soy sauce, a squeeze of lemon, honey, and a few dashes of Crystal hot sauce. All sprinkled with sesame seeds.
My garlic, red onions and cabbage went into my sauce pot, dried udon noodles went into the boiling water on my left.
Tossed together, they made a pretty mound in my bowl. Especially with a sprinkling of nori on top.
There’s something about this particular brand of udon noodle. They are particularly bouncy and springy. Probably the best Asian noodles I’ve ever had.
M will be home in a few minutes. Yay! He can help me carry groceries and I won’t be a starving orphan anymore!
