Refreshing Cold Asian Noodle Recipe for a Hot Summer Night

A couple of weeks ago I posted a pic on IG of dinner. Jenny and Martino, you guys seemed interested in the recipe! It was a hot hot hot day, and we don’t have central air conditioning! So when I got home hungry, this was my go to dinner.

There are several new things to me at the moment.

I’ve left my home of Brooklyn after 13 years and moved to a tiny (and snowy) town, Keene, New Hampshire. It’s a lovely little place but a major lifestyle change from Brooklyn.

We had a seamless transition from the hustle and bustle of Brooklyn to Keene. He has graciously allowed us to stay in his house until we can figure out a permanent living solution.
