  1. Wow Linda, I had to reread the first line of your directions a couple of times – uncooked noodles!!! My goodness, what next will you come up with? There’s no limit to your creativeness.

    • LOL Jan – we may have to do this in Class one time – I think different brands of noodles would bring different effects – I am certainly willing to try…- how about you?! {{{hugs}}}

  2. LOL Cathy – I am sure these noodles will not be served up on anyone’s plate – especially now this TUTORIAL is live! 😀

  3. Oh my goodness – and you say you admire my use of new techniques – this is astonishing! and stunning. Don’t think I will ever look at noodles in the same way again – thankfully we don’t eat the instant ones!
