The June issue of Food Network Magazine yielded this treasure.

The June issue of Food Network Magazine yielded this treasure.

I haven’t cooked in a few days due to a heavy schedule of extra-curriculars, and I can’t face another dinner of leftovers/cold cereal/frozen pizza/restaurant.
Because I’m cooking for my column tomorrow, I was just sifting through books, magazines and e-mails for contenders.
The recipe-choosing process for my printed Loaves & Dishes column can take a while. The dishes have to be appealing, fresh and interesting, but not terribly exotic, expensive or overly time consuming. It can’t be horrible in the nutrition department, and when possible needs to incorporate timely ingredients, meaning in the growing season and/or holiday categories. It also needs to be photogenic.
Deep breath.
My criteria for blog posts, though, is much more flexible: If I want to make it, it qualifies. Sometimes I’m able to make them immediately, other times they fall into my rainy day pile.
Cold Peanut-Sesame Noodles escaped the arduous L&D process to find life here as a simple, summer weeknight dish. In fact, I want to make it tonight, so it more than qualifies.
