Bath Time Noodle Dish
Now isn’t that perty?
This week has not been as eventful as past weeks but I did have to give Pee Wee an emergency bath in the middle of dinner, during which I accidentally hosed myself down with the hand shower! It’s hard to wield a shower head in one hand and grip a slippery wet and squirmy infant in the other, not to mention remembering that the stream of water actually needs to be aimed! Thankfully this meal is easy enough to prepare even during bath time and turned out to be one worth shouting about.
Thing 1 got a quick sample during one of his many dinner progress inspections and immediately ran out, slammed the door and began yelling at his brothers, “Come quick, it’s a really, really good dinner!”
I went ahead and “re-purposed” that barbecued chicken one last time and since the sun has begun to peek through those spring storms more often I have been in the mood for something more reminiscent of a picnic. A light noodle dish was just the ticket.
Noodle Dish Recipe:
Boil water and cook pasta as recommended (I like tinkyada)
Saute in olive oil over med/low
- sliced mini sweet peppers
- onion (if desired)
Add noodles to wok with cooked (or BBQ) chicken and additional olive oil if needed.
Top with parmesan cheese (if desired) and serve warm!
If you are a goof like me you might forget to saute the garlic and veggies in advance so just push that mass of noodles to the side of your wok and make some room near the bottom so you can do it anyway. Since my chicken was cooked at the beginning of the week it was really just a heat and serve meal. Whew! With more time on your hands you might try this with Noodles at Noon.
