October 6 is National Noodle Day

I just have to say that I cannot believe I missed this day. It just goes to show how much of a bummer going back to school is having on my life. That being said, I did eat noodles that day! It must be a sign!

This is just a really quick entertaining Friday read (but probably meant for Tuesday). I hope that you enjoy the quirky facts! I wonder if there is National “Ramen” Day….

Thank goodness for Friday!

  3. Noodles symbolise longevity in China.
  4. Noodles have been created from flour and water since 1000BC and today they are more popular than ever.
  5. Noodles are low in fat and have a very low sodium content.
