Dear life,

Damn. You have really been throwing some curveballs at me lately. What a weird series of circumstances! Some really good things, some really bad things. But this time has really shown me how important friends are in my life. I don’t know what I’d do without my little group of close friends right now. To all of my friends, reading this, who have been helping me through the past few weeks – you know who you are – thank you. Thank you a million and one times over. You are all so dear to me.

And to you, life – thank you for showing me that I’m stronger than I ever thought I was. I can face so many challenges and still rise victorious. Thank you for helping me believe in myself.

Love,

Sarah


I originally wasn’t going to post today due to all of the craziness that’s been going on in my life, but someone special to me said that they really enjoy reading my posts – so here I am. It really just goes to show how strong of a motivator the people you care about can be in your life. Doing things for others is what drives me. And to the person reading this, who said they really love reading these posts – this is for you.


And to all of my readers – thank you for bearing with my sporadic thoughts today. Being able to come here and air out my thoughts is so valuable and meaningful to me. If you take anything away from this post, it’s that life is infinitely more complicated than what we can imagine, but we are all stronger than we think in handling the curveballs life throws at us.

This green tea ramen is a celebration of chewy ramen noodles in a beautifully fragrant vegetable and green tea broth. This is not your average ramen!
Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • 4 Cloves Garlic, minced
  • Neutral Oil for Sauté
  • 4 Cups Vegetable Stock
  • 2 Green Tea Sachets
  • 6 Scallions, chopped
  • 2 Tbs Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tsp Sesame Oil
  • 2 Ramen Blocks (I used spinach ramen)
Instructions
  1. Bring a large pot to medium-low heat.
  2. Once pot is hot, add in minced garlic and sauté for a few minutes, or until garlic is fragrant. Be careful not to let garlic brown - it completely changes the flavor of the soup.
  3. Once garlic is done sautéing, add in four cups vegetable stock with the 2 green tea sachets. Let the stock simmer with the green tea for about 5 minutes (you can always simmer for longer for a stronger green tea flavor). Once done, use tongs to remove green tea sachets.
  4. Then, add in chopped scallions, soy sauce, and sesame oil. Simmer for about 2-3 minutes, or until scallions are softened.
  5. Place the ramen noodle blocks in two bowls. You can use any type of ramen you like - even this classic brand. Just leave out the flavor packets. I got my spinach ramen at my local Asian grocery store.
  6. Ladle the broth over the ramen evenly, and let sit for a few minutes, until ramen is softened (about 5-10 minutes).
  7. Serve and enjoy!
