Are you a Noodle Lover? :)

Most kids love noodles. Macaroni, as in Mac n’ Cheese, is a noodle. Do you love spaghetti and meatballs? That’s noodles. I am going to say it because you know its coming – noodles are oodles of fun.

Did you know that Italy’s famous pasta dishes almost didn’t happen unless Marco Polo, that intrepid explorer and inspiration for everyone’s favorite pool game, had not traveled to marvelous, exotic China. Noodles are Chinese. In China they are called ‘Lo-Mein’, which basically means boiled noodles. In Japan, boiled noodles are called Ramen. The noodle is an amazing invention. Think of all the yummy things you eat with noodles.

Stay tuned for some noodle fun facts.
