Happy Sunday!

It’s been such a nice weekend with clear skies and warm weather. I’ve been trying to savor it as much as I can because living where I live, the clear skies don’t often stay for too long. And I’m excited because tonight, my sisters and I are attending the annual CUESA Summer Bash. Over 40 restaurants, bars, and wineries will be present to serve food and drinks using farmer’s market produce. It was amazing last year, and we definitely wanted to attend the event tonight.

But in the mean time, can we talk about this Korean style kimchi soba noodles?

I’m kinda obsessed with it at the moment. Maybe it’s because it’s so packed full of flavor using simple, easy to find ingredients. I love that there are cucumbers and mint leaves to give the dish a refreshing taste. The egg added a little protein. The kimchi, well, the kimchi and the gochujang sauce (Korean chili paste) is what makes this dish soo amazing.
