Do you like eating out or eating in?
Usually I eat out because it's convenient and also because I'm always out! Besides, I live very far from where I study so it's always best to grab a quick bite before heading for school or heading for home from school.
So today I had an afternoon lecture and decided against being lazy and made my own lunch. It's quite a yummy yet easy to make lunch. Wonder what it was? Well, it had something to do with that brown sauce at the top right there, and somemore homemade noodles:
ya, the other day it was fettucine, today, it's noodles. :)
Okay, back to lunch. Yes, I decided to try out a recipe I chanced on this food blog I stumbled upon. Titled "Everybody Likes Sandwiches" (the title caught my eye i must admit... funky eh?), the author had posted up a recipe for Cabbage, spinach and tofu on noodles with peanut sauce and I happily saved the recipe in hope of trying it out someday. And today happened to be the day.
I made some variations to the recipe though. I had no spinach at home so I just left that out. I added some fish I marinated with teriyaki sauce though. The recipe called for natural peanut butter but since I didn't have any, I just used normal peanut butter spread. Maybe next time I'll try it with the natural version. All in all, I quite like this recipe BUT i think i made a mistake... I think I added too much garlic and ginger in the sauce.. it was pretty hot! not in the spicy sort of way but in the gingery-garlicky kinda way, erm, if you know what i mean. heh.
here's the end-product:
It looks very oriental eh? I really like this dish! Eating it with homemade noodles makes it even better. haha.
