What do you eat? Peanut noodle edition!

Jack was so sick yesterday and we're all recovering, so I needed something easy for dinner tonight. Grabbed some frozen peanut sauce (talked about it here) and dug some soba noodles out of the pantry. I love recipes like this which allow you to use up whatever veggies you have on-hand

Simple recipe: cook noodles, cool down with water, drizzle with sesame oil to keep from sticking, sautee veggies, add cucumber strips (optional, of course), mix in peanut sauce. Serve cool or warm, whatever you like. I used 20 ounces of soba noodles; I do find that the recipe, as written, is a little too much for a regular pound of pasta. If you use it, just pour most on the pasta and reserve a bit for use as a dip or whatever else you'd like. Nate wasn't into it tonight, but he's also clearly coming down with what Jack had (fever, headache) so I give him a pass (this is a "thumbs-medium")


 Jack had toast for breakfast, lunch, and dinner so he wasn't given a vote. We had enough for 3 of us for dinner, Stewart's lunch at work, and probably mine as well. Tomorrow I plan to make something more complicated so stay tuned!
