Walnut Miso Noodles
Thanks again to Heidi and her amazing blog, we had another fabulous meal! I have to admit to being slightly skeptical about how all the flavors would come together in these walnut miso noodles, but I'm happy to report that the flavors couldn't be more perfect, and this dish was divine!
The walnut-miso "pesto" was nice and thick, so it stuck perfectly to all of the noodles. I decided to top ours with some slightly wilted rainbow chard, chard stems, scallions, and walnuts. D and I were both surprised at how tender and tasty the swiss chard stems were, and how perfectly everything went together. Even though J started out saying that he wanted "noodles with sprinkle cheese (parmesan cheese)", he ended up abandoning his version for ours, and loving them as well! Oh, and did I mention he ate up a whole bunch of the asparagus too? Mommy has a very big "happy face" tonight!
Finally, I just wanted to take a moment to reflect on this new age of technology and blogging. It's incredible to me that in the short just over 2 years since starting this blog, I have been influenced in so many ways by others blogs from around the world. It's amazing that so many blogs can determine what's cooking in my kitchen!
