143.6...Simple Sesame Noodles

I decided to make Sesame Chicken last night and wanted something to go with it. I saw a recipe for The Pioneer Woman’s Simple Sesame Noodles and knew it would be perfect. It was!

I served the noodles with Baked Sesame Chicken and Sesame-Soy Broccoli (recipe coming).

I must have had some kind of sesame obsession yesterday! I’m not going to post the chicken recipe because it was nothing special. I based the recipe off this one on All Recipes

Breakfast today:

My son finally decided to try a bite of my beloved poached egg and avocado on an English muffin. He tried to tell me that he liked it but he was making a face that said otherwise. Then he said it was “kinda good” and when I asked him again if he really did like it, he proclaimed “no.” Really?? I couldn’t tell. That’s fine. More for me.

After I dropped them off at school, I went to Zumba. Five days in a row at the gym, people. It’s almost a miracle. Oh by the way, I retired as PTO co-president at my school. Maybe that’s where I’m finding the time? :)

Lunch included a new discovery at Trader Joe’s:

Sriracha Ranch Dressing. I decided to dip veggies in along with a turkey sandwich. The sandwich got dipped too.

This stuff is spicy!! They aren’t messing around! It was great with the veggies but I wouldn’t put it on a salad probably. Actually it was fabulous on a taco salad! Or on fish tacos!! 

What else should I do with the Sriracha Ranch Dressing?
