 Thoughts & Impressions:

-Rice noodles are sticky. Mix noodles with sesame oil right after finished cooking.

Thoughts and Impressions:

    • Rice noodles are sticky. They’ll soften up again once added to the stir fry!
    • I just used what I already had around–maybe add some broccoli next time.
    • If anything, it’s ok to scale back on the vinegar in the sauce.
