I made it this morning. I use KAF's 250 yr old starter. I posted the recipe over here if you are interested.

OH NO!! Another noodle addict!!

My mom had a whole garden of peppermint, spearmint and wintergreen. When I was a kid she always made mint tea and she also sliced zukes thin, fried the slices in olive oil then put them in a bowl covered with fresh olive oil and mint leaves. Let sit overnight in fridge, eat with crusty bread.
Sorry your mint tea brought back memories.

I've been eating those noodles all summer!

Thanks for sharing the memory. How much mint did she use? It sounds good!

Hmmmmmmmmm I didn't like it so much but she LOVED zukes that way. Let me think ............... for 1 med zuke maybe 5 or 6 leaves (chiffonade) but its all to your taste. She loved the mint flavor.

Macaroni salad, and cucumber, onion salad with rice wine vinegar and Splenda.

Chicken, veggie and noodle soup. Made from scratch, I'm starting to feel better, but my digestion is still iffy. But homemade beats the cartons I was heating up earlier in the week.

This.

My girlfriend (Michelle) and I went down to the market yesterday and came back with 8 plump fresh tomatoes, fresh thai basil, fresh scallions, tofu and straw mushrooms. 2 hours of cooking over an electric hot plate in a tiny kitchen that is what emerged. It was actually very good :)

The fresh produce here is excellent, and those tomatoes were delicious. I think I over cooked the scallions though. I put them in at the beginning with the tomatoes and the garlic, and they'd lost all their color and turned a little brown by the end. So when I posted the recipe I changed it to have them go in later.
