With the memory of Asian bolognese from Thursday night at XO Restaurant still fresh in my mind tonight I made garlic prawns and bacon with udon noodles. In my mind an improvement on an Italian garlic prawn pasta. This is the first time I’ve bought bacon for about six months. With the recent IARC/WHO announcement in mind I only bought one 50 g rasher. I’ve never done that before.

If you want to see how nicely the noodles were cooked check out the YouTube video I recorded.

This was a really tasty meal. The udon noodles are terrific at absorbing the flavours of garlic and bacon and the hot and spicy chilli flakes.

For dessert I enjoyed some Weis’ pineapple, coconut and lime sorbet.

For lunch I ate a poppy seed bagel with smoked salmon, cream cheese, wasabi sesame seeds, capers and dill. It was a pretty good sambo.
