I don't know if you can all tell, but we have been on a bit of an Asian kick.
It honestly wasn't intentional, but no one in our house is complaining, that being Logan or I.
For this recipe I got the opportunity to use my new smaller food processor that also has a shredding attachment, which I must tell you is AMAZING to have.
It does add some extra dishes, but so far my dishwasher (Logan) hasn't complained.
This was a hit in our house, Logan loved the spice from the red pepper flakes and I loved the tang from the dressing. Next time I think I will do less noodles, add some crisp lettuce and use chicken instead of pork. I like white meat better than the other white meat.
All in all this was a great recipe and I imagine I will be asked to make it again.
Poor Logan, my response to all of his inquiries for repeat meals is "not till the blog is done".
Which as we all know could very well be YEARS!
Maybe I could make it for a birthday meal...I guess I could concede another repeat for a birthday meal.
PS...did anyone notice I am now a featured publisher for foodbuzz.com!?!
Very exciting new venture in my blogging.
