Udon is my favorite type of noodle.  I like it in soup, but LOVE to fry it in a wok, which is a very unorthodox way of eating udon.  But trust me!  Fried udon is really good!  

Here is how you can make this delicious, easy dish:

Step 1: Dice vegetables.  (You can use any type of veggies you want, but I prefer scallions, onions or leeks.  Today, I used leeks)

Step 2: Rinse vegetables thoroughly.  Sometimes they can be very dirty.

Step 3: Use 2 packets of udon to make about 2 servings.  (You can get them from your local grocery store.  Normally they are in the same place tofus are sold, near the produce.)

Step 4: Heat up wok, pour in oil, and dump in the veggies.  Fry until they are just a tad golden.

Step 5: When you take the noodles out of the bag, you might want to break them apart a bit

Step 6: Add noodle into the wok and stir at med - high heat

Step 7: After about 3 - 5 min of stirring, the noodles should be well cooked.
Take out 1 of the packets that came with the udon

(To ensure that your noodle isn't too salty, using 1/2 the flavoring packet is sufficient)

Add flavor packet into the wok and stir again for about 2 minutes

Step 8: Add meat of your choice 
(this is optional)


Delicious udon noodle in less than 30 min.

From the sandy beaches of Orange County to the concrete streets of Manhattan, the Real Housewives episodes by Bravo are taking over Reality TV by storm!  And I must admit, I have become an addict!  

However, no matter how much backstabbing and cat clawing all the housewives can do, none of them match the fights and cries of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.  These girls take NASTY to a whole new level!

There is the ex-con, ex-stripper, ex-model Daniel, up against everyone else, including the very tightly knit Manzo family.  She does put up a good fight time and again.  If it were me, I'd never be such a tough b*tch.

 Daniel: victim or vixen?  Hard to tell.

As the season is nearing its end, apparently we will see even Daniel in tears after another scary face off with Teressa.  Instead of flipping a dinner table, I wonder what Teressa will do this time?  

It's funny how these TV Shows can bring out ugliness in the most beautiful and wealthy of our society.  But the dirtiest cat fights keep us coming back for more!

I hear that the newest slew of housewives are in D.C - ooooooooooooooooooh!  Wonder what kind of crazy drama will come from that one?

Here is Teressa after a heated argument with Daniel, right before she flipped a dinner table.

 Teressa again, smearing Daniel with the book that exposed all of Daniel's dirty laundry.

Why can't they just get along?!?!

To embrace the sunny days ahead of what's left of this summer, I am trying on some warm makeup colors that are both natural and delightful.  Because before we know it, it will be fall and winter again.
