...across the room for a recipe of sorts....

Oh I do wish I would remember to take more pictures!  I wish I had taken a picture of my beautiful noodle dish I cooked last night.  Not only was it beautiful, it tasted so good!!

This was another dish that just simply evolved.  I had no idea the chicken I had defrosted was going to morph into a noodle dish last night.

I looked at the pieces of chicken breast and decided they needed a sprinkling of the roasted garlic and peppers spice in my pantry, along with some freshly ground salt and pepper.  For some reason it seemed this chicken would be happiest in my bright red dutch oven along with a good amount of chopped celery, leaves and all, an onion, two cloves of garlic, minced fresh ginger (never TOO much!) and a chopped up carrot all getting close in there with a certain amount of canola oil.  I chased it around in the dutch oven until the chicken was browned and then I bathed it in a cup of chicken broth and 1/2 cup water and just left them to party at a slow simmer for about 1/2 hour.   This seemed a good time to toss in a good hand full of cilantro, parsley and a squirt or two of lime juice.  They were having such a great time I just covered them up again and cooked the thinest noodles I had in my pantry and then ladled the soupy chicken mixture into bowls and topped them with a decent amount of noodles and ate until I could eat no more.

And that is how my concoctions become recipes of sorts.   Of sorts, because it will never taste the same again because I don't know how much of anything I use but that's OK as far as I'm concerned.   I call this simply, Noodle Bowl!

This was definitely a fun dish to make or else I was just in the mood to create :)
