ramen grilled cheese with kimchi, cut, side view
A couple of years ago, I made the original Kimchi Ramen Grilled Cheese, just your regular ol’ grilled cheese sandwich, but with ramen noodles between two slices of bread. Your move.

Recently, I heard about the Ramen Burger, a burger with a burger patty between two “buns” made of ramen. Oh, next level, I see.

So this week, I made a Ramen Grilled Cheese with Kimchi, a grilled cheese sandwich with parmesan crusted, fried ramen noodles as the bread.

If you’re in a dining rut, try a new neighborhood!

I went to Venice and had dinner at Barnyard. The food was good.

Thanks to the whopping 17 of you who played along in the giveaway last week — favorable F-ing odds, especially for Daria, who won the ring. Stay tuned, more to come, including but not limited to Chicken Cacciatore…

I don’t remember when, where, or how I ever had Chicken Cacciatore when I was little. There is no way that my mother, back when we were living in Michigan, Ohio, and Texas, would have ever made something so non-Korean, so non-processed. I can only assume that Chicken Cacciatore was offered at some point either for elementary school lunch when it wasn’t Salisbury steak or straw hats, or as a Lean Cuisine, which I ate on the daily during the last half of my high school career when I was a cheerleaner.

Cheerleader. That’s what I said.

(Patience, friends, someday I will come fully out of the pantry where all my disordered eating skeletons have been quietly rattling for the last idontknowhowmany years! But not today.) [click to continue…]

Lamb. Falafel. Grilled chicken. Hummus and tabbouleh.

This is food I could eat Every.

Single.

Day.

And now that I’ve made my way to Pita Kitchen, maybe I will. [click to continue…]
