Thumbs up Fried Saimin

… continuing with the Hawaii theme …

I really wanted some comfort food today, and I remembered that I had brought back some frozen Yakisoba Noodles from Las Vegas

I gave the noodles a quick zap in the `micro to defrost,

If I had to depend on chop sticks for eating, I am afraid I would starve to death first. I cannot master using them.

Jeannie likes them often and fairly plain so, for a snack I will make a dashi from powder, soften the noodles and simply toss them in a bit of sesame oil for her..

When I got into Japanese cooking through Nami Chen (Just One Cookbook) I'd follow her recipes as closely as possible.. My local Asian Market has the frozen from fresh yakisoba noodles and I buy them there..

As to "Japanese-American", I thought that "3rd generation" made that a given and didn't realize that PC was necessary..

Yeah. It is moments like that when a mother wonders if they gave her the wrong baby to take home.

He could have been from another country, his family emigrated to Japan 3 generations ago, met your daughter and moved to the States.

It's not PC. It's accurate.

It's completely possible that this nit-picking is unnecessary and should stop.
