Garlic Noodles

Old Recipe Savoury,Savoury

Since the ban of my dear beloved Maggi, my craving for good greasy noodles have really spiked, and the worst place to be hit with such a heavy desire is when you are in holed up in the Boston suburban, with the grown ups away (yes, I consider myself in the kid category), and two beautiful baby girls under my care. My three-year-old niece is a lot like me: noodles are her comfort food too, along with pizza, pasta, cheese, chips, strawberries and chocolate. Our habits are so similar it’s scary!

So, back to noodles and Boston, a limited stocked fridge and my culinary skills are put to test.
