Sesame Noodles + Mustard Greens


My husband and I had plans to take the boys on a quick road trip this weekend to Boise, Idaho. I was excited to catch up with a dear friend that lives there and we haven’t seen each other in years. Unfortunately the day we were to leave, my little guy came down with a 102 fever. So instead of a fun filled weekend as a family, my husband took my older son and the baby and I stayed home. We pretty much spent the entire weekend snuggled in my bed watching Max and Ruby episodes one after another.


After two days of eating cereal and toast, I needed some “real food” last night. I was exhausted, I didn’t have much in the kitchen and it was hot. I needed something quick. I remember seeing some sesame noodles on Pinterest a few months back and I was pretty sure I had everything on hand to throw them together.


I had some beautiful mustard greens from a local organic farm share that had been sitting in the fridge for a few days begging to be cooked. Mustard greens have a peppery bite to them and I concluded (hoped) that they’d be a good addition to the noodles. I was right.


The dressing for the noodles is all staple pantry items. In the time it took to cook the spaghetti, I’d come up with a satisfying and comfort fueled dinner. I ate them warm last night but when my husband came home at midnight, I met him in the kitchen for a late night snack. These noodles are just as good cold.


Hope you all had a great weekend and an even better week ahead. I hope my babe gets better quick because on Thursday I’m attending the Evo Conference right here in Park City, Utah at my home mountain, The Canyons. I’m so excited to see some familiar faces and make some new friends!
