Chowtime blog

And since I don’t have a food photo, you’ll have to settle for pics of Bellingham’s Premier Baby, eating strawberries.

So, last summer my sister-in-law Tara visited made Asian salad for us. It was one of those meals that was so delicious it had me thinking about it fondly, long after… I believe Tara got the recipe from Pioneer Woman’s site (she’s a huge fan of PW). Shortly after than she asked why I “wasn’t like Pioneer Woman”. As in, why isn’t my blog a huge national hit bringing in tons of money so I can tour the country and give away Kitchen Aid mixers and new cameras…umm, I guess I just haven’t been discovered yet…but that’s beside the point.

Anyway, I came up with my own delicious version that we often have for lunch, and here I am sharing it with you, my faithful readers.

Okay…for my crew I:

Boil two packages of spaghetti noodles. When they are cooked I run cold water on the noodles to cool them.

Next I dump in tons of raw, chopped veggies…usually: bell peppers (of any color), carrots and broccoli.

Then I add about a 1/4 cup of toasted sesame seeds.

Then my secret sauce…which I’m about to share with you, my dear friends…

3/4 cups of sesame oil

1/3 cup sugar

1/4 balsamic vinegar

3 Tablespoons soy sauce.

Toss, serve, enjoy.

  1. This sounds phenomenal. I can’t wait to try it. Thanks!!

  2. Thx, I needed something to bring to our friend’s Chinese New Year’s celebration tonight (nothing like waiting until the last minute, huh?)…plus, it’s a recipe with which our little girl can help which fits-the-bill two-ways! I’d never read a “blog” before, but found yours due to a hit googling “recipes kids can make”… – admittedly I skipped the recipe and went right to your “double arch” link as I knew the medical term and have always had a clinical propensity… I read it completely, and hope Apollo’s continued to fair well!
    And I also read your “love on a mission” which made me realize that we’re sisters in Christ! No wonder I felt such an affinity for ya!!I
    I have NO doubt that you do Him proud by the excellent spirit in which you embrace the life He’s given you, and for the way you serve – wholeheartedly! You REALLY ARE a “credit” to His family and an excellent Ambassador for Christ! You go girl! Isn’t it fulfilling living in the center of His will?! As much as I wish Christ would return already, I gotta say that having to live “by faith” is actually very exciting! Our daughter has really caught the vision about Christ’s return, I mean, she talks like it’ll be next week, LOL! I think she likes the idea of the lion laying down with the lamb – just gotta love viewing life thru the eyes of a 5 year old! Thx again for the recipe – don’t know where ya find the time to write with your full house, but I know it can be therapeutic – and it’s apparent your “readers” are engaged, and it’s a wonderful forum for your Christ-centered testimony, living soo transparently! Like I said, you must make our Lord really proud! God bless you & your family!
