While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Give it a twirl - October 6 is National Noodle Day!
We're just crazy for the oodles of noodles to be slurped down all across the world. Whether you like to twist long ribbons around your fork, slip strips into soup, dish out bow-ties and spirals, or layer sheets with all kinds of savory delights, today is all about canoodling with noodles.
While noodles can be made from virtually any kind of dough - wheat, rice, potato, maize, nut, buckwheat - it's all in how you like to slurp them down. Traditionally, you've got to boil them in water or broth to bring the texture back to life. From there, you can serve them drenched in sauce, chilled in a salad, stir-fried in oil or tossed in with your favorite casserole.
So how do you get your noodle on? Is Mom's special casserole still your it's-been-that-kind-of-day comfort or are you a pasta and marinara sauce purist? Does ramen straight-up still get you through? Let us know! And don't worry, we won't tell if you were the kid eating all of the dried noodles in art class.
