Forks Over Knives: Easy Thai Noodles

Now this is a recipe I'm looking forward to having again. I made it yesterday and thought it was so-so while it was warm. Eating it cold today with a little bit of rice vinegar added makes it fabulous.

It'll actually be even better next time I make it. I used quinoa noodles instead of rice noodles because I couldn't find any while I was shopping. But of course I forgot that I buy rice noodles all the time and you have to get them from the Asian section instead of with the rest of the pasta. I also used a very bland bag of frozen vegetables from WinCo, I think I can find a much better one that'll have water chestnuts and other goodies. And I used cashews because I was having a hard time finding unsalted peanuts. I don't think peanuts would be a huge improvement, though.

It took a while, but I finally made my way through all the muffins I made. At least, I think I did. I can't find any in the freezer. A lot of things got moved around because of the party, so it's possible a couple were tossed or will just turn up at some point. Either way, today was my first day back on sweet potato tacos for breakfast, and they were awesome.

I hated the tortillas I used last time, so I got different ones which are bigger, and made two instead of three. Broccoli slaw in those as well as lunch was a nice addition. It'll be tacos for the rest of the week's breakfasts, and there's one more serving of noodles in the fridge, plus two servings of pizza and one more stroganoff. I'm taken care of until Monday, which is nice.
