Cookie Decorating Part 2 and Pancit

Wonster, JW and I had another cake decorating party at my place on Wednesday. All the cookies were such a hit last week, we got more requests for them (OK, I'll be honest, the requests were mostly from ourselves, but who's paying attention). So the girls came over and we made gingerbread cookies, peanut butter-cup cookies and the original Nestle Toll House chocolate chip cookies this time.

I wanted to make some cookies to send to my cousin Jung in SF. So here are some cookies we decorated for him.
Look at the cute Halloween cookie my friend made. Sooo cute!

For lunch, Wonster made us a yummy lunch of Filipino fried noodles called Pancit. She brought over all the ingredients and whipped it up in no time.

Wonster's Pancit

1/2 lb peeled shrimp
1 lb sliced pork
1 16-oz pack of pancit bihon noodles
1 cup of chicken broth
1/4th of a cabbage, sliced into strips
1 onion, sliced
couple cloves of garlic, crushed and minced
2 green onions, chopped
1/2 carrot, sliced
2 stems celery, sliced
1.5 tbsp of fish sauce
3 tbsp of soy sauce

Soak the pancit bihon noodles under hot water to soften.

Grease a large pan or wok and saute onions and the pork strips. Then add the garlic until fragrant. Next, add the carrots, celery and cabbage. Drain water from the noodles and add to the pan or wok. Add the chicken broth, soy sauce and fish sauce. Add in the shrimp. Cook until the noodles are soft.

The noodles are thin so they will cook pretty fast and these noodles are meant to break apart, so don't think you've ruined the dish if you start to obliterate the noodles with your super strength. It's supposed to be like that. Once the liquid has been absorbed into the noodles, it is ready to eat. Just don't forget to add the green onions in before serving. Pour on some siracha and dig in.
Thanks Wonster for sharing the recipe with us. This is a shockingly simple recipe that yields a delicious and quick meal. It's healthy too. We used a little bit of oil to grease the pan at first, but that was about it and it's chock full of veggies. It gets the soomeenshee seal of approval. =)


  1. thanks for the cookies sue!

    i didn't know that peanut butter cookie was a reese's cup cookie. makes sense now!

  2. No problem. Whenever you crave cookies, let me know. I'd be happy to bake them for you. Yes the peanut butter goodness is from the reese's peanut butter cups.
