This week has been all about getting healthy. I'm getting major serious about it and my dear husband is being thrown into it whether he likes it or not. I even stopped him from taking a second portion of tonight's totally kick ass dinner. We've been testing out new recipes and tonight's definitely topped the list of new favorites.
Thai-Style Peanut Noodles
Makes 4 Servings
1/2 cup Thai satay peanut sauce
1/2 cup almond milk or low-fat 2% milk (we used Skim)
1 tsp peeled and grated fresh ginger
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp fresh ground pepper
1/2 pound somen noodles (we used angel hair pasta)
1/4 cup very thinly sliced scallions
1. To prepare the dressing, puree the satay sauce, almond milk, ginger, salt and pepper in a blender.
2. Cook the noodles according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cool water until cool. Toss the noodles with the dressing and scallions in large serving bowl.

No... the picture isn't what we made, it is from the cookbook, but gosh darnit if it didn't look exactly like that.
