It’s about quarter to one and it’s been a delightfully simple, beautiful fall Sunday with no real duties, just the joy and freedom to follow whatever speaks to me. I slept in and then joined a friend for a hot chocolatey walk through downtown.
When I got home, I found my self called to stay outside longer so I grabbed Brady and we soaked up the sun and found some leaves to stomp on. It’s one of those rare absolutely perfect seasonal days that has a crisp freshness to the air, warmed over by the sun so you only need a cozy sweater for comfort.
Eventually, hunger struck. I intend to make avgolemono later, a Greek inspired lemon, chicken, and egg soup so I wanted something simple, but satisfying for lunch. Ramen to the rescue!
While the water boiled and the noodles cooked, I whipped up a simple dressing for the noodles to replace the dreaded seasoning packet: soy sauce, rice vinegar, fresh grated ginger, and just a small squeeze of honey…heaven. The warm noodles soak up the sauce, and topped with a sprinkle of green onion and cilantro? Perfection. Can’t go wrong with a flavor-packed meal that comes together in about six minutes.
Now I’m just waiting for Andrew to come home. Then back outside we go.
