I am glad to know that now.  I haven't had noodles/pasta in 3 months.  Now I can

Mrs oldkid just told me that they are called "zoodles."


That's a dumb name.  But it's one way to find recipes, I guess.

Yes but not why I haven't had noodles

It is coming up with the zoodles that I don't like. But then I found I can buy then in Tesco.  But you gave me another idea, there must be a device to make them if/when I am not near a Tesco

Look for spiralizers to make 'spaghetti/noodles' from vegetables.

I'll move this conversation with DH here as it would seem a better place...

I actually made a chicken teriyaki for lunch earlier. It was quite good, I'll just have to get cornstarch next time and adjust the quantities. I was pleasantly suprised to find sesame seeds on the counter. I also made a katsudon last week and I've now tried making ramen twice. It's not all Japanese though, I have noodles at home I've been cooking with the help of my wok. Last thing I did was chicken with vegetables and a Thai curry paste.

There are other things too. I've done Indian curries in the past but in the future I will try some Thai or Japanese curries. I would love to be able to replicate a hearty food court Japanese curry.

I like Pailin's Kitchen channel on Youtube as a guide for a lot of Thai dishes.

Personal fav:

Thai Holy Basil Stir-Fry Recipe (Pad Gaprao):



Once you get this one day, it is simple and fast to prepare. I usually make a big batch of it once or twice a week though I often don't eat it with rice which is probably sacrilege.  The avocado is my thing, not Thai style



This BBQ pork is also amazing:



I usually do it with a different dipping sauce that is often used for chicken but most of my friends prefer it

Since I don't have a BBQ at home, I put the pork on a cast iron skillet under the broiler in the oven which actually seems to work better as you can put more of the sauce on when you have to flip it.

I don't know what happened this morning but when I was frying some eggs (sunny side up), one of the yolks like just kina "popped" and splatted halfway across the pan, leaving a yolk sized crater in the middle of the egg whites. Very odd experience. I took a bit out of that egg when it was done... it didn't taste right. Looked normal though. Didn't make me sick. /offmychest
