It's National Eat Your Noodles Day❗

Today is a reminder to eat your noodles. 


According to web-holidays.com, "the earliest written record of noodles in China is in a book dated to the Eastern Han period (25–220 BCE). In 2005, Chinese archaeologists found an earthenware bowl that contained the remains of 4000-year-old noodles at the Lajia archaeological site. They resembled Lamian, a type of Chinese noodle and were made from millet.

It’s now believed noodles originated from a desert region in Central Asia, the Tarim Basin in China’s Xinjian province.

There are lots of varieties including flour noodle, rice noodle, glass noodles (mung bean noodles), kelp noodles, shirataki (yam), soba (buckwheat). Though noodles are normally cooked in boiling water, they can also be pan-fried or deep-fried."


In honor of today, here are a few ways you can pay homage:

📍Visit your favorite restaurant and see what type of noodles they have on the menu.

Kugel is a traditional Jewish side dish. With apples and raisins, our version of this special baked noodle pudding would be equally delicious served for dessert.
