Hubby ask me what’s for dinner a million time on the way back from work and I replied him bluntly that he should just have cornflakes with cold milk. He of course not happy with my reply but sometimes I prefer to skip cooking dinner so I have to pretend I am in bad mood to get my ways. When we got home and as I reach for the fridge for milk, * SCREAMS* No cold MILK!! Damn Damn Damn.
Hubby of course didn’t know what’s going on so I told him I am such a good wife, eventhough I am moody I will still cook him a nice meal. I have to think of something to cook randomly.
Aiyooooh.. Weather is so hot! What to eat? Porridge make me sweat more. Soup make me sweat too. Spagetti ah? Everyday also spagetti. Have to weigh my options based on weather this time. Hubby said I always on the aircond in the living room and the electricity bill skyrocketed. Cannot blame me what? Its the weather! I am forbidden to open wide the sliding door at the balcony or else all the freaking hateful bloodsucking mosquito would come in and attack the mosquito magnet. (mosquito magnet here refers to my hubby).
Check my fridge and here’s what I have
A pack of zuchinni bought from Cold Storage for RM5.99
Check the can food section
Still got Tuna in chilli oil
I still have lots of varieties of noodle left. I always stock up on noodles and if something happen during the Bersih 2.0 I think my supplies can last me for 2 weeks at least. heheheheh
I have to reduce my noodles stock anyway, I decided to make cold noodles. I am not a fan of cold noodles and I hardly order any cold soba when I dine at any Japanese restaurant as I prefer piping hot noodles to burn my tongue so that I dont eat too quickly.
I think cold noodles is a perfect dish for ridicously hot weather, its light and healthy too.
Here’s how I make them.
First, boil a a large pot of water with a couple of salt added. When the water is at boiling point, add the noodles and cook until al dente. Once the noodle is ready, remove it immediately from the salt water and give it a cold ice water bath, ideally. Or you can just leave it aside and add a couple of ice cubes on the noodle and leave it alone to cool at room temperature so that the ice melt or chuck it into the fridge.
Get your can of tuna ready, discard the chilli oil you dont need it. Leave aside
Blanch the sliced carrot and zucchinni with another pot of hot water until slightly soft. Do not overcook it or the texture of the vegetables will turn mushy. Leave the vegetable to cool, or again add ice cubes. Meanwhile, thinly slice onion and you dont need to cook it at all. set aside.
Then you may add the tuna in chilli, a couple teaspoon of olive oil, a pinch of salt and toss/mix again.
Tadaa!! Cold Noodles with Tuna
To add a bit of zing to your palate on this dish, eat this cold noodle together with the garlic tomato puree!!Tweet
