Where does the name come from?
The Cook You Some Noodles® name is referenced from a 1996 Hong Kong martial arts/comedy film called Forbidden City Cop. Hubby (boyfriend at the time) and I watched it a while back and there was a bit in it where the main character was having a full heated argument with his wife. In the middle of the argument, the wife wondered to herself whether the husband might be hungry, so she asks him “Are you hungry? I’ll make you some noodles”. The husband stops mid-sentence, shrugs his shoulders and then says “What the hell.”
WARNING: Sappy moment coming up
Then one time after that, partner and I were having, I am sure, a silly argument, when he suddenly stopped and asked “Do you want me to cook you some noodles?” We stopped arguing, I laughed about it remembering the movie and had some noodles. Ever since then, when we know an argument is over something silly or minor, one would turn to the other and ask “Cook you some noodles?”
So when I started this blog to journal my crafty creations and life with my boys, I asked hubby what I should call it and he said “Cook You Some Noodles”.
Cook You Some Noodles is a reminder that everything is fine, don’t sweat the small stuff – love the little things in life. It’s the teeny-tiny precious moments added together that make one ball of HAPPY! (sappy I know, but hey, what can I say, loving life at the moment)

Thanks Jodi. When I first started the blog, it was more like a journal for me with the stuff I made when my boys were babies. Didn’t imagine this is where I’d be 🙂
