So, tonight I made ramen:
That's how it is supposed to be done. I only use Ramen as a soup base to which I add meat and vegetables. Otherwise salty water and noodles isn't very appealing.
I watched the series 'Mind of a Chef' and saw how they layer the ramen, what the differences in the noodle types are as well as examples of the different styles.
Most importantly was they talked about how they made the broth and showed the pot they were making it in; so I had a good visual as well as the Japanese chef's explanations of generally how the broth is made.
Using that as a basis I went from there.
Since the broth isn't a standardized recipe it's really up to whoever is making it to come up with their own version.

It's basically a chicken and pork or beef stock that's cleaned up and cooked down before it's seasoned to taste.
But, it's cleaned up and recooked so it's really inbetween consume and broth.

One tip that Chang pointed out is that ramen, (at least the style he likes to cook) starts with a layer of fat in the bottom of the bowl and it's built on that.
Frozen burritos!

Chook , Pig and Cow flavouring..huge grin
Breakfast!!!

Grits and eggs
I was lazy today.
I just juiced some veggies and made a couple of hot egg and turkey wraps.
I've been jonesing some fucking smoked brisket lately. Smoked brisket, homemade Mac N Cheese, and a pint of Guinness would make me a very happy man right now.
Frozen pizza
Baked chicken thighs, rice, corn, snow peas.

I would punch Mother Teresa in the throat for a frozen pizza.
