…you go to the Asian market.
I was looking for, what we in the Midwest call “chow Mein noodles.” I was acutely informed today by the sweet Asian lady at the market that these are not, in fact, those.
Usually, I would just go to the regular “American” grocery store and buy them, but they were out.
So, why do I need them? To make haystack butterscotch and chocolate cookies of course!
You should have seen me in this market trying to explain to this lady what I needed…
After many attempts at saying “chow mein” and her dragging me to the refrigerator section, I explained that I was looking for “fried noodles to put chocolate on.”
You should have seen her face! It was priceless.
Anyway, eventually, I googled what I was looking for, (the American version), and showed her and she took me right to what I needed!
It was awesome!
Adventures in cooking!
