Simple Sesame Noodles

Ok, you know I love, I mean LOVE to shop in International Food Stores.  We don't have one where I live (and maybe that's a good thing) because I would probably be in there, even if I didn't buy anything.  It just really fascinates me as to all the ingredients that can be found all over the world.  Being in an International Food Store makes me feel like I've stepped outside of my everyday life and stepped into a whole other world, depending on what aisle I'm on.

Suffice to say, when I do have the chance to shop at International Food Stores, I may even bring home an item that I have no idea what I'll do with it.  I just get it and wait and see.  On my last shopping trip, I purchased a package of Hakubaku's organic somen noodles.  And finally with the recipe featured below, I had the opportunity to use them.

So what's the recipe?  The Pioneer Woman's Simple Sesame Noodles.  I didn't find this simple recipe through her blog, but rather through Pinterest of course.  And since I'm determined not to be a pinner only, but also a doer, I set out to make this dish.  I had everything already, minus the green onions, so this was a winner!

The only modifications I used were these organic somen noodles and I used 1 tsp of hot chili paste instead of the 1/2 tsp of hot oil (which I don't even know what that is).  Plus I sprinkled in some sesame seeds.  Let me repeat, these noodles were soooo good!

Enamored by the pretty picture in the pinned image, I had to create my own set.  :-)

p.s.  Today marks my last day of the 20/20 Challenge.  :-)
