One of my favorite summertime meals is a calamari salad to which I have added bean thread noodles. They key element being the noodles themselves. And, they come in an eye-popping pink mesh bag. The closure consists of a red plastic ring and an orange rubberband. A lot of citrus fruits come packaged in those same types of bags. In part as a way to enhance the color of the fruit, which I find a little deceptive. Either way, I love the bags, and use the pink ones in particular instead of wrapping paper. I actually have one hanging on my wall because I love it so.
