It's noodle time!! Yay! I LOVE noodle. I love any kind of noodle. With any kind of shape, taste, sauce, condiment. As long as it is eatable, i will love it. Egg noodle, rice noodle, mung bean noodle, you name it (including instant noodle. Oh.... It is my guilty pleasure).

This morning, i saw a picture of my friend in Facebook. A noodle. One of my favorite noodle that is sold in one restaurant my hometown. The picture is so appealing. And suddenly i really want to cook noodle for our dinner. I think i still have 2 packs of egg noodle. Let's get creative. I'm going to cook it and serve it with crispy chicken and teriyaki sauce.
