I guess I want food now

#1: the only thing I want to eat in the entire world is ramen
(and coffee)
#2: those are both good things
well, depending
I mean, you can get bad ramen and bad coffee
but you wouldn’t
because why would you when there are good versions?
#1: I mean I want all the ramen. I want ramen noodles cooked with only a thin sauce; or the soup version; at home or in a restaurant; many kinds of ramen but only ramen.  It’s the only thing I want in this world right now.
#2: there is an anime about all the different kinds of ramen
#1: ooh
memo to self, someday when I have energy/caring, I would like to try the chilled cucumber, cauliflower, and ginger soup from this webpage (although first I have to figure out how to measure in mL, what even kind of crap is that) and:  http://orsararecipes.net/best-eggplant-rollatini-recipe
#2: that looks good!  I want a personal chef
#1: don’t we all?
#2: Last night we had steak and an Asian-themed cucumber salad
today for breakfast I had oatmeal with raisins and macadamia nuts
for snack I had pistachios
#1: sometimes I put trail mix in my oatmeal
#2: I do that too, but we’re out (and most trail mix has sugar added… sigh) [#1 is totes baffled by this, I haven’t seen this!  The trail mixes I get never have sugar.] .[do you not get dried fruits with trail mix?  Or chocolate or granola are other offenders]
#1: I would love to have colcannon, mmmm…
it seems like work to make it though.
#2: for lunch I had leftover steak with leftover lemon butter mixed veggies [#1 thinks this would be good if there were a shallot-mustard sauce on the steak]  [but no ramen there…]

Now I’m all hungry.  What are good recipes?

    Hi from the land of aubergines, coriander and swede! (Eggplant, cilantro and rutabaga)

    Google, as ever, is your friend: ml= millilitre so millilitres to US tablespoons is the conversion you need for the soup. I guess that US and UK tablespoons and teaspoons might not be the same size which is why I specified US tablespoons just in case there’s a difference!

      1 US tablespoon = 15 ml. 1 cup = 250 ml (more-or-less). :-) I am out of recipe ideas and in a serious food rut.

    My favorite ramen to make at home with fresh noodles from the Asian market. I also haven’t made chiles en nogada in a while and am craving it now:

    This makes me miss the ramen place a few blocks from my grad school office. I have to take the subway to get good ramen here, so I have to make it An Event, instead of just a nice lunch on a whim.

    I made this (without the edamame or garnish because I was lazy) last week and it was super good! Lots of chopping but otherwise simple! And SO MUCH VEG. If i make it again I will either add 2 more servings of salmon or reduce the veggies a bit.

    Here is my favorite thing to do with leftover tortellini or gnocchi: Fry it in a little butter until it browns a bit and then add a scrambled egg and some Parmesan cheese and fry til delicious.

    It works with leftover plain buttered stuff (what I pull out for my kids to eat…) or with leftover tortellini/gnocchi in pesto sauce. Not sure if it would work with any other sauce.

    Sadly, I do not have any leftover tortellini or gnocchi right now….

    Also, to clarify, the raisins in my trail mix don’t have sugar on them

    I very much crave almost every carb in existence with a very big craving for ramen of late. Food and wine has been a really nice source of recipe ideas, lately, though I often adapt them to reduce complication and ingredients.

    On Fulbright in Japan right now, and the ramen here is AMAZING. Every little restaurant where ever you go serves ramen that blows away what we get in the US. If you love ramen, I highly recommend visiting Japan!
