My menu for the week is determined by who I cook for. If it is just John and me then the sky is the limit. I have cooked a lot of my specialties for Supper Club on Wednesday nights, but I hadn’t cooked any Asian dishes until this week. On the menu was PF Changs Mongolian Beef, Fried Rice with Yum Yum Sauce, my Spicy Coconut Soup, and my Sesame Soba Noodles. And we all know I like cooking Asian food mainly because I always have all of the ingredients on hand in my Asian Pantry. This time I only had to go to the store for the flank steak. I recently found out that in Japan traditionally they serve soba noodles on New Years Eve. Maybe this coming New Years we’ll have a varitety of dishes like soba noodles and black eyed peas to bring luck and prosperity into the new year. What dish do you cook to bring in the New Year?
Besides these noodles being wheat and giving such a different taste & texture than my normal heavier and creamier pasta the best thing about this dish is it can be served hot or cold depending on your mood. Try it out and see for yourself! Especially since it is National Pasta Day!
Yes I have dishes just for Asian night – Here is the spread for the evening
