a cold dinner for a cold night

Even though a nice warm meal is typically just the thing to beat the chill on a cold night, some nights it's nice to have room temp or cold dinner option (especially if your husband is getting home from the hospital at 11:30 p.m. and will be raiding the fridge). Enter - Asian noodles & spring rolls. I have shared a pork spring roll recipe before - these were pretty similar. Shredded pork, carrot, bell pepper, lettuce, little soy and some spicy peanut sauce.
Spring rolls are so delicious, Vance and I can't get enough of them! Next time will be shrimp and veggies. The unexpected star of last night's dinner was adapted from The Pioneer Woman's Sesame Noodles, adjusted to serve a very hungry couple or three normal adults.
6-8 ounces, whole grain angel hair pasta, cooked and drained
2-3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 t
ablespoon sugar
2 garlic cloves, minced
1-2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon Sriracha

2 whole
green onions, sliced thin
(little vegetable or canola oil if the flavor is too strong for your palette)
Whisk together all ingredients except noodles. In large bowl, pour dressing over noodles and toss. Try not to choke as you inhale this delicious and simple dish. This would be great with some sauteed shrimp, veggies, chicken, old sneaker, tire...anything.
And when I said it was cold here...I meant like 7 degrees cold, almost a state of emergency for Nashville.
