Thursday, November 3rd

Thanks to Ingrid & Molly for the Noodles and Company ordering advice. I went with the 'Indonesian Peanut Saute' $ 7. 89 - Spicy Peanut Sauce and Rice Noodle Stir-Fry, Broccoli, Carrots, Cabbage, Asian Sprouts, Cilantro, Crushed Peanuts and Lime with Tofu. It was pretty decent. Didnt feel mentally or physically worse off after eating it, but I wouldn't go out of my way for it again either.
The restaurant was giving out free lip balms. Like Muscadine Jelly, this was a new one on me, but my lips were happy for the little gift.
Morningstar Vegan Grillers with TJ's Veggie Chili and a Baked Potato with Sour Supreme for dinner. Now THIS is what I call a delicious meal.
A Half Baked Truffle for dessert.
Coming up tomorrow: Using a Restaurant.Com Coupon for lunch.

The noodles looked good, too bad it wasn't anything special :( At least you got free lip balm out of the deal! Have you ever tried Hurraw lip balm? They are the only ones I use now, they are SO GOOD. I have one in pretty much every bag I own. Your dinner looks yummy and yay for the truffles! I'm going to be making 2 more kinds of truffles around the holidays :)

I love Noodles and Co! Give it another chance! Try the Japanese pan noodle with tofu

Molly said...

It doesn't look like they put much sauce on the Noodles dish. I agree with Susan- you should try the pan noodles, too. Funny that they were giving out lip balm, but cool too!

I want one of those truffles!!

Stacy said...

Free lipchap is pretty awesome, even if the grub was less than exciting.

Ingrid Improves said...

As you stated, between the smoothie and the noodles - I need to up my game. I will now begin a new section on eats, dubbed "Shen-Worthy". :)

Michelle said...

The noodles look good... Sorry they weren't anything to brag about.
How come no one has ever heard of Muscadine jelly? It must just be a southern thing. I think you would really like it.
OMG.... I can not believe you still have truffles. Please tell me that was your last one. :0)

We don't have any of these noodle places around here...the noodles sounded really promising in the description. Chili with baked potato=yum!

Hey Now!!!!

VaVa, never heard of 'Hurraw' lip balm. I bought a lifetime supply of 'Kiss My Face' lip balm at Big Lots a few years ago, so I'm 'covered' so to speak. Hope there is another Truffle giveaway coming.

Susan, you love Noodles & Co too? If I give it another try, I'll go for the Japanese Pan Noodles.

Molly, there was quite a bit of Peanut Sauce at the bottom of the bowl. It wasn't bad, but I'm fortunate to have WFs as a lunch option and I think I'm better off with their Noodle dishes.

Stacy, it was organic 'lip chap'. Doubly awesome. I thought of taking more than one from the bowl, but instead decided to pretend I wasn't greedy.

Ingrid, insert 'sponge-worthy' joke here. Ain't fallin' for it.

Michelle2, now don't you feel bad you ate all your Half-Baked Truffles?? I wisely parsed mine out to enjoy for months to come.

Rose, I'm starting to suspect you don't really live in Seattle...Could you be a pubescent boy in the midwest pretending to be a vegan aesthete for sh*ts and giggles? If so, that's cool too.

Rose said...

Haha!! How'd you guess?

But seriously, either Seattle is over-rated or I'm an elderly shut-in...probably the latter.

Argghh your sweets are killing me...let me know when you fancy doing a parcel swap, I NEED your desserts in my life!!
