So I was really hungry, but I have the flu and so far everything I cook ends in disaster. Then I remembered that I had magic in my cabinet.
Nongshim Shin Ramyun Black with No MSG
So far these are some of my favorite ramyun noodles ever.
Sick as I was, I heard the angels sing. Not as spicy as the regular spicy pack stuffed me very well and made excellent soup broth.
Contents of the package.
Dried package contents and weight.
Soup Base #1
Turned the broth from clear to white.
Soup base #2 with all the spiciness.
Turned the broth orange with red spots.
I had chicken left over from chicken noodle soup with no noodles the night before.
The results with almost no broth.
The end results and now I can eat and be happy! And all I had to do was boil water. Budget gourmet dining at it's best. Now I just need more Nongshim products to eat! I have no idea why I weighed the contents of the packages, the flu made me do it!
A living BJD. At the St. Louis Japanese Festival the Cosplayers made their presence known! I didn't get their names and now think that I should have taken a notebook and gathered email addresses. The SLUTS (St. Louis Ubiquitous Tailors Society) and a few other organized costume guilds are attempting to join forces with the Cosplay group and raise the level of costume visibility in the St. Louis Metropolitan area and surrounding areas as well. The interests run in all directions, from mascot creations, Steam-punk, Gothic Lolita, Pirates, the Fae, Stuffies, Clothing and much more then I can list at this moment. There are more events upcoming that I would like to attend and capture the creativity that my hometown has to offer.
I have been learning fashion illustration and beginning fashion design at home on my own. I am now ready to start playing with sewing and basic garment construction. I want to learn about pleats. I found that awesome blog that is inspiring as well as informative.
There are many pleats and techniques to learn. I will start with the jewelry pleat because it is most often used on petticoats and on skirts. I need to make many petticoats and skirts so I may as well focus my attention on the details needed to produce them.
