During my birthday week last week, Mr. Eats and I tried a new ramen place in Tempe, AZ that was surprisingly tasty. If you find yourself in the Phoenix area craving ramen, stop by Umami in tempe and I’m pretty sure that you won’t be disappointed. It’s basically a “build-your-own” ramen bowl scenario – I chose miso broth, spicy corn, and roasted pork while Mr. Eats chose a paitan (chicken & pork) broth with chicken breast, soft-boiled egg, butter, corn, and double noodles. Both were super delicious.
Speaking of asian food, Korea apparently loves to watch people stuff their faces. I personally find few things to be more disgusting than watching someone eat, but I’m wondering if I should start moonlighting in this business, because I could make a freaking killing.
Happy Thursday! Two things – First, I can’t believe it’s March. WTF, GUYS? WHY IS IT MARCH? To piggyback on that topic, HOW IS MY BIRTHDAY IN 11 DAYS? I’M NOT READY TO BE OLDER YET! If I disappear it’s just because I’m having an existential crisis and have withdrawn from the world… no big deal, guys.
Phoenix has had a busy week, with some raindrops falling, people freaking out about pink clouds, and a near ALPACA-LYPSE. A couple of llamas escaped from their owner’s yard and took the interwebs by storm while our local police spent several hours chasing them down. The llamas were eventually caught, but not before Buzzfeed had time to make a “Which Runaway Llama Are You?” quiz.
Shannon made us Baymax cookies because she’s amazing.
Another Thursday is upon us so, LET’S DO THIS!
I did not get to celebrate Fat Tuesday because the Polish population here in Phoenix is abysmally low, meaning that my beloved paczki are nowhere to be found. Instead I read this double vanilla jam donut recipe and just pretended like I could taste them.
Serious Eats is helping us to demystify our poultry labels.
Nestle has announced their plan to remove all artificial ingredients by the end of 2015, which I think is a rather noble quest.
I was able to find two of the three new Cookie Core flavors at my local Target…
