Weeknight take out: Peanut Noodles + Bok Choy with Peppers

When the temps drop, my craving for noodles tends to go up. I've also been a lover of peanut butter since I could remember (Make your own here) . You can imagine my joy when I stumbled upon a recipe for Gluten free Asian Peanut Noodles. I've made a few changes from the recipe I found at Feed me Phoebe. This is a wonderful dish for an easy weeknight meal. The only thing that's missing is some egg drop or miso soup. What's your favorite take out meal to make at home?
