Shrimp Rice Noodles

Shrimp, noodles and Asian flavors, makes me hungry…

12.12.12! The world didn’t end, we are all alive and kicking. Honestly, I don’t think this world is going to crash anytime soon, there is a lot more to happen. On the other hand, I am not sure how long am I going to live and I don’t want to think about that as this specific thought always chills me to the bone.

It’s been a very stressful time for me even though it’s the most beautiful time of the year. Having a tug-of-war between reality and illusion. At times, it feels good to have challenges in life which makes life more exciting. I’ve realized one thing, only those who overcome the trouble without losing hope will survive and reach their destination. Isn’t that “life of Pi ” is all about? Wow, what an amazing movie! It’s truly a visual and emotional treat.

I’ve a lot of recipes to post yet I am not able to blog. I need to have a clear mind to blog, that’s what is missing these days, a clear mind! Anyway, today I am forcing myself to blog and to overcome the block.

Here’s one of my favorite ways to make noodles. I love to add shrimp rather than chicken, shrimp noodles tastes better than chicken noodles. I seldom buy instant noodles and I absolutely dislike the seasoning that comes with instant noodles. Making a delicious noodle dish is not that hard, with a few ingredients we can whip up a great tasting noodles.
