Hot and Sour Noodles

I made this last night and it came out very well. To make it truly fatfree, you need to leave off the peanuts. (But I was bad and ate the peanuts–they added a lot to it!)

    • Shredded Brussels Sprouts Salad with Dried Cranberries and Cashews
      Dried cranberries, spiced cashews, pickled red onion, and a tangy maple-mustard vinaigrette make this shredded Brussels Sprouts salad sparkle with flavor.  Last week my husband and I had dinner with some friends at a local pub.
