Around exactly the same time every year when the sun sets later and the weather is getting dryer and warmer, I start to think that spring has finally come. And at that exact moment, those last days of wintery horrible weather come back, almost as if nature was having a laugh.
But with bad cold weather comes hot delicious food, and what better meal to satisfy your cravings and warm your body than a homemade Ramen?
What I love about this dish is thateven when made from scratch, it’s ready to eat under 30 minutes.
