Shrimp and Bokchoy Noodles

[UPDATE: I have submitted this post to Presto Pasta Nights, a weekly blogging event. This time around, it's hosted by Soy and Pepper. This submission is my first ever to any sort of blogging thing. How exciting!]

This is not what my dinner was supposed to look like. I had planned on a simple Asian noodle soup to use up some chicken broth that had been unearthed in my pantry. In typical fashion, I came home to realize my chicken broth had expired in November 2007. Whoops!

With my powers of improvisation, I came up with this noodle dish, which had the following: shrimp, baby bokchoy, garlic, onion, ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil and thin udon noodles. I wish I had grabbed more bokchoy; I had forgotten how much I like it!

Now, I'm watching The Cosboy Show and eating popcorn. Mid-week therapy of champions!

Seee....sometimes the "oops" of life give one great results. I love your pasta and hope to see many more on Presto Pasta Nights.

Hi Ruth! Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to participating in many more Presto Pasta Nights to come. :)

Hi Mary! Thank you, I am usually not organized enough to have everything work out the way it's supposed to, but somehow it turns out in an unanticipated, but still delicious way. (There are also many missteps along the way, of course!)
