Ramen fail

I still need to write up a post regarding our New Years resolution about health. Part of that goal includes trying new recipes, as our menu is pretty limited. We usually find a new favorite dish and then eat it frequently.

This morning, hubby and I tried to make a ramen dish we discovered several years ago but had forgotten about. Hubby had posted the recipe on an old blog but we couldn't find it and had to improvise. The ingredient list is fairly simple - ramen noodles, green onions, tomatoes, lemon juice, soy sauce, and hot sauce. We use Sriracha Chili Sauce which I absolutely love. We'll have to experiment a bit to figure out the ratio of lemon juice to soy sauce to hot sauce. Don't use two tablespoons of any type of hot sauce with only one serving of ramen. Ouch. My lips and tongue were burning. Oh, it sure tasted good though!

Wow, that sounds tasty! I'll have to give it a try, but light on the hot sauce.

It really is very good if you don't burn your mouth! Let me know how it turns out for you.

Have you ever tried Sweet Chili sauce? That's something that we always have in our home and we eat it with almost everything.
Love your blog.

Salome, thanks for commenting! I haven't tried sweet chili sauce but it sounds really good. Next time I'm at the store, I'll see if I can find some.

Hi Cassandra,
I need your help! I have put on some of the weight I lost last spring so would you please, PLEASE come visit me every now and again on my diet blog? Accountability is everything with me and it worked so well for me the last time!

Happy New Year.
