Cold Noodles

Basically a noodle salad, Asian style.  Literally 15 minutes to prepare and sooo refreshing during summer heat waves!

Ingredients: Thin noodles, vegetables

Sauce Ingredients: 1/4 cup rice vinegar, 2 tbsp honey, 3 tbsp unsalted creamy peanut butter, 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil, 1 tsp chilli oil

1.  Prepare your noodles by cooking them as the package instructions.  When done, rinse with cold water and either set aside or refrigerate.

2.  Chop your vegetables of choice.  I went with cucumbers, carrots, and cilantro.  Poultry such as chicken or sliced eggs would have been good choices as well.

3.  Make the sauce by whisking together all ingredients and adjusting to taste.

4.  Mix the chilled noodles with the sauce and vegetables and serve cold.

Weekend

Some late night and early morning kitchen creations over the weekend…

8:30 A.M: Breakfast Naan Pizza

Use the same naan recipe as last week, top with with tomato sauce, chopped cooked bacon, shredded mozarella, and carefully crack an egg on top.  Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until the yolk is set.  Top with chopped cilantro and cracked black pepper.  Best served with Sriracha Maple Syrup (equal parts sriracha sauce and maple syrup).

7 P.M: Kimchi Beef Dumplings

Mix 1 lb of ground beef with 1 1/2 cups chopped kimchi.  Mold into dumpling skins and seal.  Boil or steam to cook and serve with your favorite dumpling dipping sauce.

1 A.M: Cheese-Stuffed Jalapeño Poppers

Slice jalapeño peppers in half lengthwise and gut the insides.  Stuff with shredded mozzarella cheese and close the halves together; using toothpicks helps.  Make a batter mix of beaten eggs, black pepper, salt, and herb seasoning.  Dip the jalapeños first in flour, then in the egg mixture, and finally the breadcrumbs. 

Fry in hot oil until golden brown.  Pair with your hot sauce of choice.
