Scribble and Scrambles ~ Din-Din Report.

So we made four recipes to try out over the weekend.

-Good Cold Sesame Noodles and the good news is that you can click on the title...the recipe is posted at the HG website. I am now a fan of these crazy Tofu Shirataki noodles. These noodles are firmer than pasta. The only trick is that they have to be rinsed well and very thoroughly dried. If they have any other funkiness I couldn't pick up on it. I even ate a raw one and there was no aftertaste and the only texture difference is that it felt like extra al dente pasta. Very Yummo.

The other three recipes were
Jalapeno Swappers, Lord of the Onion Rings and Fiber-ific Fried Chicken Strips. All made with Fiber One cereal.

Honestly, I was less impressed. Fiber One has a sweet taste. The texture was great, especially with the onion rings. We baked them longer that suggested and cut the onions into thinner slices. But the sweetness bugged me. I will try to find another breading option that will not have a sweet overtone. If I do, I'll let you know what I discover.
