noodles in hoisin/peanut butter sauce

noodles in hoisin-peanut butter sauce

I've been running around like a chicken with my head chopped off. Did you hear that? Yup, that was me head, rolling down the kitchen "alley" and into a set of rolling "pins".

I'm wearing a lot of hats lately (on my chopped head of course) and I'm getting a wee bit tired of it. I'm hoping it slows down but unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be happening. No end in sight until maybe January. boo hoo.

So when this happens, it's hard to think about food. But we gotta eat, so that's when I pull out some frozen chinese food I bought at that huge bulk grocery store and make some sides. Like these noodles.

Quite frankly, I can not remember if I sauted the noodles with garlic and onions first before I added the sauce (I made this a short while ago - remember, my brain isn't intact with my typing fingers). But, really, you can go either way. (Plus, I can't tell by looking at the picture either! grumble, grumble).

Hoisin sauce and peanut butter are like best friends and they really dance well on the tastebuds. And, oh so easy to make.
