Friday Night

So it's Friday night, I'm a moderately with-it(although I did just write "with-it" which probably disqualifies me) 26-year-0ld and I live in Brooklyn... What do I do?
Make granola, of course. I do not have a picture of said granola, but I have a good deal of it left so you will probably get to see it sometime soon. Pretty straightforward: oats, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, wheat germ, pepitas, cinnamon, molasses. It is good, or at least good in comparison to the crap they call granola in most grocery stores. It has a much cleaner taste in that you can actually taste that it contains oats. It is not just a vehicle for huge amounts of rice syrup.
Prior to making this granola I made dinner.
I have been in a cold noodle mood of late and figured I had some things laying around that could dress it up a bit. So here goes:

Cellophane noodles with small shrimp, asparagus, chives, tomato, sweet onion, fried shallots, and ground peanuts with a light dressing of peanut butter, lime juice, rice vinegar, tamarind concentrate, fish sauce. And probably something else I am forgetting.
Pretty good. Should have drained the noodles a little longer, as the remaining water made the dressing watery. But good flavors, and I love buying $2 of shrimp, because it is surprisingly a lot of shrimp.
My one meal of the day(it was too hot to eat earlier on) and a good one.
