It’s always fun to try out new recipes. But it’s more fun to do adjustments on a recipe you’ve never tried and make it your own, especially if you have absolutely know idea how it’s going to turn out.

So, let’s night, that’s what I did to an egg noodle recipe I found online. As is my usual approach, I had to make adjustments as some ingredients will make the dish expensive.

I made my adjustments and hoped for the best.

Chinese Egg Drop Noodle Soup (Original recipe here)

Sometimes it is just magical to meet up with good friends and talk. About anything and everything over really good food.


She happens to be one of those really good friends that I can spend an entire day with and we won’t run out of topics to talk about.

Well, it probably helps that we are both chatty but still. It’s hard to find someone you can spend more than 5hours with and still feel that there wasn’t enough time.

And it’s an added bonus that we are both adventurous when it comes to food. I am so blessed that I was able to spend this afternoon (until early evening) with her as we are usually too busy with work and our everyday lives.
