Out of all the carb choices, noodles are probably my favorite.
Then, rice, and then bread.
I don’t want to say pasta, because I don’t get the same satisfaction from short pasta when I have craving for noodles.
They have to be long so that I can slurp (lol)!
You may ask what is “Nanban”?
Well, there are many Japanese dishes that have “Nanban” in their name.
It’s usually flavored with sweet and sour sauce with scallion and hot peppers.
I probably won’t make “Nanban” chicken anymore, but Nanban noodles are pretty tasty!

Here is my Sashiko (Japanese embroidery) project #3.
This design is called “biscuit”, and I think it looks good on this canvas fabric.
