easy dinners

January 27, 2009

tom ran out of his favorite korean instant coffee packets so we went to the asinayo, a small korean market in framingham, where i took the opportunity to stock up on tofu. we got these little yogurt drinks for free and i had mine when i got home with a slice of zucchini carrot bread. are you sick of seeing this bread yet? i still have a huge piece of it in the fridge as well as the freezer!

i was craving some real yogurt, so i had a plain chobani with raisin bran and a tangerine for dinner. simple, but that’s what my tummy wanted 🙂

i tried a new recipe for tommy’s dinner- and it turned out really well, so i’m sharing it!   i made a ramen pouch adapted from an alton brown recipe for ramen shrimp pouch. you basically put ramen noodles, veggies, and meat on a piece of foil, then fold up the sides around it leaving a small hole up top- pour in liquid (i used water, mirin, soy sauce, and sesame oil) and then bake for 15 minutes at 400 degrees. i had a few tastes, and it was surprisingly good- like something that would be served in a japanese noodle restaurant.  this recipe is a great way to reinvent ramen, or you can probably use any type of rice or pasta- i think i will try a healthy version of this with buckwheat noodles in the future.
