Have we talked about Udon noodles?

Because if not, we need to.

Admittedly, we’ve been fairly silent this month on 2frugalfoodies.  We’ve been eating great food this month, but the problem is, we haven’t cooked most of it.  The highlights of our restaurant-binge-spree have been trips to New York and Washington, DC, where we dined in some pretty incredible places.  This post could go on for pages about those trips, but we can boil it down to two tips:  In NYC, go to Colicchio and Sons – it’s worth it.  In DC, go to anything that Todd Thrasher owns in Alexandria.  We went to at least 3, maybe more, of his places and each one was fantastic.

Back to the udon noodles.  They’ve become a new staple in our diet.  Found mainly in Japanese cuisine (as that’s where they originate), they’re delicious, perfectly textured wheat noodles that add just enough of their own flavor to Asian-inspired dishes.  Toss with shrimp, veggies, or maybe some Soy-Ginger Halibut…. and you’re good to go!
