Big Guy and I had plans for a date night out last Friday night. Except I couldn’t decide where I wanted to go and the couch sounded so much more fun than putting on “real” clothes and shoes. #9monthproblems Don’t worry, we’re still going to try and squeeze in a date night out before the end of this weekend but honestly my desire to go out doesn’t exist.
So instead of going out last night, I made us double-sesame noodles and we plopped on the couch and watched a few Netflix shows. It was glorious. And don’t even think that take-out is easier – because it really isn’t. In fact, I bet this dinner was ready in half the time it would have taken me to call a take-out place (I’m not even sure who I would call), place my order and then drive to pick-up said order.
Big Guy really liked this dinner.
Soba noodles along with purple cabbage, green onions and shredded chicken are tossed in a nutty sauce that is down right addicting. The base of the sauce is tahini – so if you’ve bought a jar for another recipe and aren’t sure how to use it up, make this! Along with the tahini, you whisk in water (to help loosen things up), toasted sesame oil (the whole “double-sesame” thing), lime juice (for some tartness and to liven up the dish), Sriracha (for a little kick) and salt.
Once everything is tossed together, simply dig in with your chopsticks.
Because chopsticks make any meal more fun.
