curry + noodles = happy me!

If you read my blog at least infrequently, I'm sure you've seen at least one post about curry -- I love it all, especially coconut-based Thai curries. I love the sweet-spicy-salty-creamy-flavorful goodness!

I have pretty much always served my curries over either brown or Jasmine rice, but then a recipe for "Thai Curried Noodles with Broccoli and Tofu," from the most recent issue of Vegetarian Times, caught my eye. Now, my love affair with curried noodles has begun.

Confessionally . . . I'm really not much of a rice person. I make rice because it goes with things, not because I like it. Pasta, however? I LOOOOOOOOVE any noodle, any time, any where! It's as if my curry prayers have been answered . . . I can now enjoy a big bowl of curry without any of that annoying rice getting in my way! :)

Good thing this recipe generated quite a bit of leftovers, because I'm not home the next two nights in a row . . . being busy can be a good thing, but it is hard to maintain sometimes! What are your best tricks for getting through busy spells?

You do a really good job of NOT doing this when you get busy, but I tend to eat out more or rely on packaged foods. :)

I love curry, but i'm the only one in the house who does. Thus, my curry eating is relegated to lunches and restaurants.

Emily, thanks for that awesome compliment! I really do try and avoid processed foods.

Michelle, I really hope that I don't end up with a "picky" family someday! I love intense food!
