Peanut Sesame Noodles

White bowl full of peanut noodles.

Just a quick post before my daughter and I head out the door for a road trip to Mobile, Alabama with several stops on the way. I am beyond thrilled that my soon to be 14-year-old daughter wants to go anywhere with me. Her main motivation is to see friends in Alabama, and I am her means of getting there, but I’ll take what I can get.

Bowl full of Sesame Peanut Noodles with chop sticks.

Our first stop is in Greenville, SC where if all goes as planned and we don’t have a heat stroke, we will bike ride the Swamp Rabbit Trail and stop for lunch in Travelers Rest. After we spend the day in Greenville, we will head to Atlanta for a day and then on to Mobile. Hopefully we have lots of adventures in store, all of them fun ones.


Anyways, I have spent hours searching the internet for restaurants and things to do in the places we’ll be visiting and I haven’t had much time to cook. Peanut Sesame Noodles is a wonderful recipe for when you are short on time. Bring some water to a boil while you throw all the ingredients for the sauce into a blender and chop a few veggies, boil the noodles and toss everything together. Cut back on the red pepper flakes if you don’t want it spicy. This is a meal the whole family will enjoy and it tastes good at room temperature or even chilled.

      We didn’t have much time in Atlanta so we went to the Aquarium, World of Coke, and Centennial Park. Oh, and we had some wonderful doughnuts at Sublime Doughnuts! Can’t wait to go back.

    I eat pasta like crazy, but always tend to go italian. But I´ve been dying to try the peanut butter thing for the longest time, and just never do! This recipe is going to change that! So flavorful.

    Oh yum!!!….please…can you come over and make it for me? Too delish – I can’t stand it!!! If I was evenly slightly adept at using chopsticks, I’d so be eating that right now.
