Of Snowy days...and lazy nights!

Every now and again, K surprises me with an offer to make dinner....and I gladly accept. This time, he made Chinese Style noodles after I had expressed a craving for them. The last time I had made these, I wasn't too happy with the outcome...so I just let K take over. This recipe was inspired by Nabeela of Trial and Error.

These were great..much better than last time's fiasco....with just the right amount of spices and textures. It was one of those lazy nights when you just crave something spicy to "refresh" the palate from the usual flavors. This really hit the spot....! Husbands!.....they really do surprise with their creativity and enthusiasm sometimes!

Do visit Nabeela's site and try it..you won't be disappointed.

This is also my first entry to Rooma's monthly Blog patrolling event!
Check this great idea out, it is a wonderful way to try out the flavors of the world and who knows, maybe even find a new favorite. So, browse around for a new recipe to try....and get cooking!

Another thing I would like to share with you all....and especially for Rooma, are some pictures of Snow around my neighborhood. I apologize for the pictures not being clear, all Camera's fault!

View from the Living Room Window:

View from the Back porch.......On a Sunny day, I am lucky enough to see the Ocean's rim...and the hamlets seen here are also much clearer and prettier!

More pictures another day......when the Camera decides to behave!

Lovely post Trupti :-) Noodles look yummmmmm....Its summer here at the moment but even in winter we don't get any snow in Auckland. But only three hours drive down south in winter, we get to see lots of snow - so sort of get best of both worlds :-)

WOW you live in a beautiful place.
We probably won't have snow this winter (I hope) but a little part of me misses it a little bit too. The Chinese Style noodles are looking good. K seems like a good and nice of him to offer.

indosungod said...

You guys are actually having snow up there? It's been rain, rain and more rain here in Toronto... Which is weird, cause we usually get more snow than you (You're in BC, right? I don't know why I think that... Maybe I'm wrong...).

And the noodles look fantastic. I was in a similar noodly mood yesterday, but it turned into a lazy spaghetti effort.

Hey Trupti,

Did you use the egg noodles for the chinese noodles recipe as Nabeela's recipe says egg noodles.
What kind of noodles did you use?
Please let me know.
And I have also posted an interesting recipe for Plantains at my blog "zaayka". I am sure you gonna love that recipe. It is for plantain tikkis.
Yeah the noodles are absolute delight.
