No pictures this week but a thumbs up and a thumbs down. The Pork Medallions in Mustard Sauce may have turned out better had I not overcooked the pork and made it dry. But still, this recipe was tossed. I have no room or tolerance for "OK" recipes. :) The Soba Noodles with Chicken and Vegetables, however, was a huge hit with everyone. I couldn't find regular soba noodles in our local grocery store and ended up using pre-cooked Yakisoba noodles (which are NOT made with buckwheat) found in the Asian section of the produce aisles. I also substituted dried ginger for fresh simply because I couldn't find any at Fred Meyer. I served it with steamed sugar snap peas which seemed to compliment the meal well. All in all, the results were fabulous and this was a keeper!

Yum the soba noodles sound good. I may have to add that one to my list of recipes to try. I'm with you...I don't keep a recipe unless it is really good.
