Wonder Noodles

Today we ate the Asian version of Kitchen Sink Noodles. It’s been a kitchen sink noodle sort of week.

It’s been a walk to the library, roll on the lawn, sit and watch My American Gypsy Wedding kind of a week. Oh yes it was.

Oh yes it was. I nearly bedazzled my bra last night.

My kids are all about noodles these days. So, I nabbed a bag of the Ohana House precooked Udon noodles at Costco last week after spotting the “VEGAN” sign and nearly clicking my heels together for joy. It’s proven the perfect package for super-snappy meals. You just heat the noodles and rock. Less than 1 minute, and no boiling needed. Praise the stars.

We tossed ours together with every color of the rainbow tonight, and a sweet, limey soy sauce that tasted awful nice.

But, dang. Who needs nice? I’m two seconds away from moving myself to South Carolina and becoming an American Gypsy. I just so need choreographed poetry at my kids weddings.
