Here is another one of my favorite "comfort foods". When I make this dish and sit down on my recliner to eat, I can just feel a great big hug from everyone that is also eating this. I created this dish when I was a brand new mommy. Udon is a japanese thick white smooth noodle about 4-8mm thick. It is made from wheat flour, salt and water. Kids usually like to eat noodles here in the islands and so this tasty dish was made with my keikis (children) in mind. They have now learned how to make this for their children who love to eat it, too! I hope that you give it a try and can feel the love, too!
