Sesame Soba Soy Scallion Noodles

Try saying that one five times in a row!  Unlike the challenging title, this dish is so easy to make and absolutely scrumptious! It was amazing how long I had been living in China before I started to get my feet wet with basic Chinese or other Asian dishes.  I had been tooling around with udon noodles and this incredible and common chili sauce here but that was about it. This noodle dish is refreshing, simple, and most likely something a bit different than your day-to-day noodle nom-noms. Usually, noodle for me equals Italian food.  However, both this dish and the recipe that will be posted afterwards are indeed Asian inspired.  I made them both last year when I decided to spoil the crap out of my husband for his entire birthday weekend.  I literally cooked him crazy awesome and sometimes crazy involved meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner 3 days in a row.  I know, I know, how insane or insanely nice of me, right?  Well, selfishly, as this is my hobby, it was a fantastic opportunity for me to concoct some creations I’d had brewing in my brain for some time.  I loved every second of it!  Enjoy!
