My Drunken Noodle Dish

I was curious about this Rice Flakes that I saw at Asian Grocery so I bought it. I thought I could try and make some kind of "drunken noodle" dish with it. I'm not really sure, but I think it was $1.99.


I found a recipe at Food 52 here. The instructions said to soak the noodles for 10 minutes, drain, and add to your stir-fried mixture. I soaked the noodles for 1/2 hour, drained and added to my stir-fried mixture. 

I never ate a bicycle tire before, but I imagine the texture is similar. It was pretty horrible.

I attempted to save the dish by adding a bit of water and covering it. 

At about this time Wendell called and while talking to him, the bicycle-tire noodles burned.


Landon said to not give up on the noodles . . . maybe next time I should boil it first.  So, okay, maybe I'll try again.

“I never ate a bicycle tire before, but I imagine the texture is similar”. 😆😆 So sorry the noodles were bad, but what you wrote is funny.

Even the tire analogy didn't phase me because it still looked ono!

Some instructions on the web say to soak for 10 minutes in VERY warm water - so I think that means hot. I like that you don't have to boil it and then drain. Check out this pretty Thai lady cooking mung bean noodles. She reminds me of my friend Gayln.

Too bad, I thought rice noodles only had to be soaked in water to soften up. Going come out more betta next time.
