Chicken Satay Noodles

As a child, every Saturday morning I would go grocery shopping with my grandma. I loved going to the grocery store with my grandma, helping her get all the things on her list. It was my time with just grandma. And I still love grocery shopping today. My current fav grocery store is an Asian supermarket about 15 minutes away from me. Now if only Grandma still paid for the groceries...
