Noodling Around

gluten free - trader joe's

All I have to say is: TGIFF. The extra “F” is for this:

But on the same day Abe broke his pinky finger (jumping into a pool – yes, a swimming pool) we got a new fridge! For 8 years we’ve had one without shelves on the door; so much extra space now that we can easily access our condiments…

…I immediately went to Trader Joe’s to stock up.

The Fresh Rice Noodles are easy to make, but immediately began clumping after boiling – anyone have a tip for that?

Did NOT like it mixed with their Peanut Satay. Not sure if it was the sauce – I definitely liked them with french fries – but with the noodles, the combo was meh.

Our Disneyland shoot is postponed until after Abe’s cast is removed – but in the meantime, check out who’s in his latest BuzzFeed video (at 36 seconds in)

    I buy those noodles! I make them with a super-quick and awesome peanut sauce by Allyson Kramer. I’ll try to remember to send you the recipe this weekend. You could add a tiny bit of oil to the boiling water to help with the clumping issue. Sesame oil would be a good choice if you were serving them with a peanut sauce.

    Sending healing energy to Abe! I hope he’s out of that cast soon.

    Hey Lynn,
    Sorry about Abe, I hope his finger heals soon! I have a tip for non-clumpy noodles. You can either A. add a few drops of oil to the boiling water when you add the pasta, or B. drain the noodles in a strainer, rinse under cold water to remove the starch and then add a few drops of sesame oil and mix and either serve cold or heat back up in a pot with sauce. I hope this helps!

      Will definitely try. Thanks, Jessica!
