Made Tom Yum Goong noodle soup. For those who don’t know, this soup is hot, sour and spicy made with shrimp stock, one of the popular dish you’ll find in Thai menus. I’ve never made it before. Because my sister made it a few days ago, and had leftover ingredients (galangal, kaffir lime leaf), she gave them to me. I happen to have some lemongrass, so I tried making it today (following Pailin’s recipe), and added noodles to make it a full meal.

I can’t tell you if the ones I made are similar to the ones in the restaurants. I haven’t had tom yum goong in a long long time, so don’t remember the exact taste. This one I made had all the flavor I could remember. My critics ate it for the first time and gave it two thumbs up.

Meatless Monday meal serving Korean sticky rice cakes. I liked the chewy texture of the noodles. It went well with the vegetables, mushrooms, and tofu. Was hoping to have leftovers for lunch, but didn’t happen.

Our meatless Monday meal today – japchae, a classic Korean stir fry. A popular dish made from sweet potato noodles you will find in Korean restaurants. I’ve made it with tofu and boys loved it.

Again, on a night where there’s practice and fencing, a quick meal is all we can do. Love the homemade XO sauce comes in so handy. Makes the meal so much more flavorful.

Need some hot soupy meal to warm the bodies – I went for Bun Rieu (Vietnamese Crab and Tomato Noodle Soup) from scratch. Made a big old pot so we will have it for tomorrow night as well! img_4869

Been so busy at work lately that I’m serving simple noodles tonight for dinner. I even made a big ol’ pot hoping to save some for lunch tomorrow. Nope, all gone! Boys are eating machines!

Had hot pot this Sunday and whatever’s left (surprisingly it’s the beef) made it back to our table for dinner tonight. 2lbs of beef has turned into a two-day affair! No one ever turns away a piping hot bowl of pho.

Egg noodles stir fry with 5-spice tofu, mushrooms and cabbage as our Meatless Monday dinner. Simple, just simple.

Made my very own japchae today! Japchae is a very popular dish in Korea. It’s stir fry using potato starch glass noodles with meat (I used chicken), and vegetables. Fairly easy to make, but lots of prep work involved. The flavor wasn’t quite there this time and I know exactly why. I was using the low-sodium soy sauce. Will try again next time, maybe with a video. Stay tune.
