Snowflakes and Rain Showers

It was a dark and stormy afternoon – we have those now and then in Washington. πŸ™‚ I got home on lunch break, pulled up the shades to let a bit of light in and there were snowflakes! Stuck there by my roommmate Robyn. πŸ™‚ Aren’t they cheery?

I’ve been bed-ridden so much lately that I simply had to post some pictures of my beautiful Washington. Just looking at them makes me FEEL like I’ve been out and about. πŸ™‚

Dairy country. That’s Mount Baker off in the distance

Nooksack River

Nooksack Falls

Sigh. I feel better already. πŸ™‚

Sometimes in the middle of winter I crave summer. I know you couldn’t tell from all the hot, sunny photos I’ve been posting lately. πŸ™‚ Well, I’ve also been craving summery foods, light, bright and packed with flavor. Like this noodle salad.

I picked up some lovely mung bean noodles – something I’d never cooked with before.

I love how they go all glassy and silvery when they’re cooked.

I added scallions…

…cilantro…

…plump mandarin orange segments…

…and some thinly sliced yellow bell pepper, then made a quick vinaigrette of freshly squeezed lime and orange juices, sesame oil and a bit of kosher salt and pepper.

It suited my craving beautifully. πŸ™‚
