sometimes you need a good, big bowl of ramen. m made this from a pack of shin ramyun, with some leftover beef potroast we had on hand, egg, spinach, and frozen dumplings. it was beyond satisfying!

hellllllz yeah to a fry up! m got really good at making delicoius fry ups - this time he made sure to make it properly with grilled tomatoes, which really balances out all the richness of flavors. overeasy eggs, baked beans, sausage (in lieu of bacon), grilled tomatoes and mushrooms, and delicious ciabatta roll toast. this never fails to satisfy us, be it for breakfast, lunch or dinner (today, it was lunch).

m and i made this concoction that lies somewhere between a kimchi jigae and yookgaejang -  mostly because of the addition of beef brisket pot roast (no we didn't cook this, it's a pre-cooked version from trader joe's, again). it's basically kimchi jigae, but because rarely is it made with beef (usually pork or fish like saury) that it reminded us of a very fast and loose version of yookgaejang.
with black rice, it was so good on a day like today, of 1ºF / -17ºC cold weather (even though the baby and i didn't make a step outside).
