Teriyaki Noodles with Broccoli & Chicken

First, I must say that the burgers and cherry tomatoes came out so yummy last night! My husband usually does the grilling, but he was working late so I manned the grill and I did a damn good job if I do say so myself. haha!

Tonight we are going to have something a little different for us. I don't usually make Asian-type food, but I bought this box of noodles and it has inspired me. The brand is Asia Specialties and I found it at Aldi, it was an impulse buy because it was on sale for $0.89. The box says Sesame Teriyaki - Noodles with Sesame Teriyaki Sauce & Sesame Seed Topping. I figured I would make the noodles for myself for lunch one day, but my husband saw the box and asked if we were going to have them for dinner, so now we are.

I am going to make the noodles according to package directions and then add in some diced cooked chicken and broccoli, which I always have on hand for my daughter to eat. (Yes, she loves to eat broccoli; cauliflower too. I am SO lucky.) Anyway, it sounds good to me, I'll let you know tomorrow how it tastes and if the husband liked it too.

I need to work on my grocery list because tomorrow is shopping day. I have to come up with three more dinner ideas and I am looking to try some new things, so I am going to check out all my favorite websites and blogs for inspiration. You know I love to share so here is my list:

The Websites:
Allrecipes at

The Blogs:

(you can click on those blogs under My Blog List to get to them)

I was reading the blogs this morning and got two great ideas; grilled cheese with egg inside from Tried And True (which she got from Krista's Kitchen), and pizza on the grill from This Stop Willoughby. Two down, one to go...

Happy eating!


  1. I'm glad you liked the grilled pizza idea. It's so much fun, especially with the kids.
