Now that T is capable of staying up until 7:30 or 8, we have begun to regularly eat dinner all together most nights instead of once or twice a week. Everyone is loving the new system, as it means we all eat together and M and I are getting to eat before 9! It's a bit crazy trying to get dinner on the table by 6:15 or 6:30, but we're doing a pretty good job and we're enjoying cooking with T - as is he! At any rate, because of this relatively new system, we're repeating a bit more for a while,so we can get the kinks worked out. We had this soba dish for the first time in late June and it was a huge hit. Thus, we're making it again to both solidify the meal in the repertoire and to have a sure fire bet for our new group eating plan. At any rate, the results were fantastic and T LOVED it. We had to remind him several times to use a fork or spoon instead of shovelling the soba and tofu in with his hands. Once he had calmed a bit, we even rubber banded some chopsticks together and he tried those. It was great!

Prep Notes
Difficulty: Easy
Chopping: Zucchini, garlic, ginger
Time: 35 minutes
Make ahead: I'd do this last minute.

"A family favorite!"
