Stuffed Somen Salad

Every year the weekend of Thanksgiving, my Japanese great aunts throw a huge Christmas party. The entire family is invited, so it’s a huge day of craziness, fun, and tons of really good Japanese food. I have fond memories of eating sushi and somen salad (somen is a type of Japanese noodle) and watching while all the adults played white elephant. Unfortunately, once I started performing Nutcracker every year the party conflicted with the performances, so I haven’t gone since I was pretty young.
I have been craving somen salad for a while now, but I didn’t know what it was called so I couldn’t ask my mom about it. So of course I was elated when I walked into the kitchen a week ago and smelled the dressing! She put the somen salad in inari packets… just when I thought somen salad couldn’t get any better! Believe me… this is heaven!!! I really could eat this the rest of my life… it’s pretty light but still makes a good meal, and it’s sooooo good! Just try it… I promise that you will love it too!
By the way, I think it would be pretty awesome if all my food bloggers sign up to participate in Taste & Create . It’s this thing where all the participants get partnered up with eachother, and each person makes any recipe from the other’s blog, then writes a post about it. I think it would be a lot of fun to have an excuse to make something from one of your blogs… and just think… one of you might get to make sushi! Hehe but seriously, I think it’s going to be a pretty cool little thing.
