I am glad you have a board for dementia, am caring for a 97 yo aunt by marriage since November. Alma Schneider
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons rice vinegar or white wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon dried hot red pepper flakes
4 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1/2 cup chicken or vegetable broth or even water
3/4-1 pound linguine or lo mein noodles chopped scallions and chopped, peeled cucumber for garnish
In a medium sized saucepan, combine all ingredients up to and including the chicken broth. Cook on medium heat, stirring until it is thickened and smooth. Let cool.
Cook noodles, drain and rinse in cold water. Transfer noodles to a big bowl and toss with the sauce. Serve at room temp. and garnish with the scallions and cukes.
IMPORTANT NOTE! If you make the sauce beforehand, DO NOT toss with the noodles until you are ready to serve. If they sit for a while already mixed, the noodles will soak up all the sauce and it will get dried out. You can make the pasta before as well as the sauce but just keep them in separate bowls. You can prep the garnish before also and leave it in the fridge in a small covered bowl or tupperware. Enjoy! anything) for her. I am a retired RN 57 yo and he is 62 yo.
