My Weekend!

Hey guys!

Friday was my department’s holiday party which turned out really nice. It was a my colleagues home which was beautiful! There was salmon, steak, pasta, latkes, salad, and for dessert there was chocolate cake, cookies, tiramisu, and carrot cake. Everything was delicious!

Saturday my husband and I finished up our Christmas shopping at Kmart, Five and Below, and Modells. After, we ate at a Chinese Buffet which was nice because we haven’t been to a buffet in a long time. So we both enjoyed ourselves!

Sunday we had dinner at my mother n laws house with some extended family. We had a Spanish soup called “Sancocho” which has chicken, celery, carrots, and potatoes. We eat the soup with white rice, avocado, and bread! Yum! It was so good!

The Pittsburgh Steelers also played against the New England Patriots but we ended up losing because of a lousy call the ref made at the end of the game just when we were about to win! But the Steelers definitely put up a good fight! I’m still proud of my team!

What did you do this weekend?!

SPICY PORK RAMEN ANYONE?!

(Picture above is of my homemade Spicy Pork Ramen Soup)

One of me and my husband’s favorite things to do is to eat! We love eating Asian cuisine! It is so colorful, filled with flavor, and most of it is very healthy. So I decided to make a Japanese Ramen Dish for dinner one night.
My husband found the recipe in a food magazine he was browsing while we were waiting in line at CVS. He said “Ooo Babes, take a picture of this recipe! We should try and make this at home!” It was a recipe of Spicy Pork Ramen Soup. He said that he wanted to make it. So we went to the store to gather all the ingredients. But a week went by and he still hadn’t made it. I was getting impatient and told him that I would make it. LOL!

The recipe required cooking seasoned pork and onions in a skillet and place to the side once cooked.

Then I had to add water, chicken stock, and soy sauce to the slow cooker for the base of the soup.

I twisted the recipe a bit so I added mushrooms, fresh ginger, and grated garlic to the slow cooker.

I combined the pork and onions with the ingredients that were already in the slow cooker. The food cooked on high for about 5 hours. When the timer was at about 2 hours left, I added baby bok choy. When it was about 15 minutes left I added 2 packs of ramen noodles(I left out the chicken seasoning that came with it).

Then it was all done. I added a boiled egg to my bowl and dressed my soup with some sesame seeds as well as cayenne pepper for an extra kick of heat! It was so yummy! My husband and I scarfed it down in like 2 seconds! Ha! I will definitely be making this soup again in the near future!

If you would like the full recipe from the magazine, just let me know!

Have you made ramen dish before? If so, feel free to share your recipe! I would love to try it out and maybe even blog about it!
