Yummy plummy noodles

So, in order to get this blog back up and running, I've devised a new strategy-- mobile blogging from all the pictures I've taken over the last year... All those photos that I took thinking "I should post this on Moody Foodie," but didn't.  So, here we go:

I must say, the first time I made these Doong Ji Korean noodles, I thought they were a bust. For one thing, I wasn't in the mood for their cold slithery texture. Plus, I had over cooked them, allowing them to congeal into a cold slithery blob. 

Ok so why on earth would I blog about said slithery noodles? A couple of months ago, in the heat of a Kentucky August, I tried them again (this time following the directions.) And they were delightfully refreshing in all their slipperiness. The plum flavored cold broth is really different, but so good on a sultry evening. I topped mine with a hard boiled egg and veggies for a satisfying summer dinner.

Can I resurrect this blog?

So. It seems this blog has been completely defunct for more than a year... I don't have a good excuse. But as a way to make amends, I offer up a snapshot of my new favorite healthy ramen in all it's quirky Kor-English  glory :)

This particular variety has a unique bright red but mild soup base that oddly reminds me of kind of a tomatoey-paprikash with a touch of tandoori spice. So, not very Asian tasting, but quite tasty.
