It’s been seven months since my last confessio…erm…post. Lots has happened, including several vacations, tons of design work, and a move to a new home in September. In recent months, much time has been spent settling into said home and getting life organized. Let’s just say, fitting my belongings into a one bedroom place (less than 500 sq. feet) has been a challenging game of Tetris. On the plus side, I’ve been given a reason to simplify my environment into a space that is more streamlined and stress free.
In the upcoming months, I’ll be posting about primarily indoor activities. Today has been a snowy day for Seattle and surrounding areas. Spring is still quite far away, but I’m already aching to get out in my new little garden area. So, while I sip my tea and look out at the blanket of white, I’m flipping through the Territorial Seed Company catalog that just arrived in my mailbox. To get me through the grey months, I’ve planted some paperwhite bulbs to bring a little green into my life. They’ve grown like mad in just over a week. Have you planted narcissus before? It’s easy! Try it yourself.
On the menu today is a meal I’ve been eating several times a week of late. So easy, cheap and warm: Miso Ramen. Using this recipe I found on Foodiecrush, I’ve created many variations. The version pictured doesn’t even use ramen noodles. So many options! I will note, though, that I’ve been boiling the eggs for more like 6 minutes, rather than 4 like the recipe states. Four minutes was a bit too runny for my liking.
Here are the basic ingredients I’ve been using:
- 1 package instant ramen noodles (or other noodles as seen above)
- 2 cups boiling water
- 2 tsp miso paste
- 1-2 eggs at room temperature
- fresh spinach
- Sliced green onion, chopped
- Soy sauce
