Here was one of my makeshift dinners whilst mum was away. Start with a pack of soba noodles (cook as per the instructions on the pack), top with soba sauce, seaweed and toasted sesame seeds.
For a more filling meal, have the noodles with gyoza. I love my gyoza with vinegar dipping sauce.
And to make it a little more fancy, serve with a soft boiled egg! Kudos to Char's blog - you gave me the inspiration.
All up it took me about 20 minutes to get a meal on the table which I thought was pretty good. It probably took me less time to eat it but it was a nice and simple meal which didn't cause too much of a mess. (As much as I was looking forward to trying some more recipes whilst mum was away, it turned out that there just wasn't any time. There was always things to do and the other half of the time, I just wanted to sleep).
Well, no excuses now. I'm back to blogging and hopefully some more adventurous recipes to follow.
