Noodles, Noodles and More Delicious Noodles and a #Giveaway


     You guys are never going to guess what I found.  Ok, so technically I didn't find it so much as it showed up at my doorstep.  To be fair though, I did find it on the front porch.  On second thought, I am totally taking credit for finding it!  Think about making your favorite restaurant style noodles at home in just a matter of minutes and that is just the start of it!  Sit down and let me tell you more.


    To tell you the truth, when JSL Foods offered to send me some Fortune Noodles to try, I wasn't quite sure what to say.  My only experience with Asian style noodles at home previously were the kind you eat in college with the seasoning packets.  As soon as these arrived at my door on ice packs, I knew I was in for something completely different! Fortune Noodles are fresh, cholesterol free, MSG free and ready in a jiffy!  They are made with natural ingredients have great gluten free and whole wheat options too.  You can find them in your grocer's produce section by the wonton wrappers.



   Now while I'm being honest, I'll let you know that while I noticed instantly that these were different than the dried noodles I've had before I was still a little skeptical about the sauce packets.  I thought for sure I'd need to do some doctoring.  But I thought I'd give them a try anyway.  I chopped a few chicken breasts and stir fried them up with an onion and a pound of edamame. Then I went to work on the noodles.  The packages didn't seem that big, so we thought we'd make them all for a side by side comparison.



    One by one I prepped the noodles and added in some of the chicken mixture. It only took a few minutes and all three kinds of noodles were ready.  The sauces packets made a lovely coating for each kind of noodles.  There was plenty to give the noodles and all of our stir-ins plenty of flavor.  It smelled delicious and we couldn't wait to give them a try. So, we sat down for the big tasting.  We ate our fill. My husband and little dude both liked the Coconut Curry Noodles the best, closely followed by the Teriyaki.  Little dude thought the Thai Peanut Noodles were 'too spicy' and my husband has never been a big fan of peanut sauce.  I thought they were scrumptious! They had just enough heat to make them interesting.  And my concern that the serving size of two on each package was grossly optimistic was wrong too!  The three of us ate them for lunch, my husband had a big bowl as a late night snack and I brought the rest of the leftovers to work to have as lunch the next two days! Win, win and win!



    So of course I have more noodles on my grocery list.  I was short on fresh produce last weekend when I whipped these up.  I was refusing to go to the grocery store until the Easter leftovers were gone, so I made them quick and simple.  Next time I'm going to whip up the boys' favorite Coconut Curry Noodles with shrimp and plenty of fresh veggies.  If you would like to try some Fortune Noodles for yourself, be sure to enter the giveaway.  You can pick two of your favorite noodle flavors and they will send them right to you!

  3. Hi Carlee, I do love noodles and me and my daughter often have those nasty three minute noodles as our guilty pleasure on a Friday night. They are so bad they are good! I put it down to the fact I was allowed them as a child, so I'm rebelling!

    I'd happily give any of those noodle packets a try, the flavours all sound good.

    1. Heehee! We always have a few of those in the house too. My husband loves them and like them as a late night snack after a long cold day at work. These are definitely better though!

    1. I really liked it. I've made a few peanut sauces at home, but my hubby isn't usually a big fan. This would be a perfect way for me to get the flavor with almost no work and get a couple of lunches out of the deal!
