It is easy for me think of new American or Italian-style dishes to have for dinner because I can just do riffs of things I know. For Asian dishes, I have to put on my creative thinking cap. K and I wanted a new dish to make with udon noodles besides soup. We had bought the frozen ones as recommended by Monica of Playing with Flour which means that we have a stockpile of them to use. This was a combined effort from K and me, and I think it was very successful! The sauce gets absorbed into the noodles perfectly, and K said it is a lot easier to stir fry the udon noodles than rice noodles.
