  4. don soup is one of my favorites, I LOVE making it the night after we have had homemade Chinese food and then I can add the leftovers to it! Thanks for visiting us and we hope you have a marvellously happy day!

  5. Looks good except I would leave out the cilantro. :)

  6. Udon. My new favorite noodle! For anything that would normally utilize spaghetti-type pasta. Sauce clings delightfully!
    I use the fresh (refrigerated) or frozen kind.
