Onion Salad

If you’re Asian, or even if you’re not!  You understand the need to have that crunchy, spicy, sour, salty, veggie side dish to accompany all the fatty and greasy goodness we often eat.  You visualize (or at least I do) the oil globules hardening from mixing with all the cold beverages you consume.

OK, back to the point.  Koreans’ number one staple is kimchi (next to rice…or maybe vice versa), but sometimes we don’t always have kimchi in the house (unless you live with your parents).  Hannah shared a yummy onion salad recipe with us that is sure to satisfy every taste bud.  It has every flavor you need: sour, salty, spicy, nutty, and…sweet…like me!  Pfftt.  Just kidding.  I guess I’d be spicy, if I had to choose.  Not saying I’m hot or anything, but anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE spicy food and hot sauces.

Here are a few different versions by the girls. 

Can you tell which one is the original?

A Noodle Kind of Week

My girls and I send phone pics of everything that goes on in our lives…like everyday…all day.  Why am I not surprised that we all had cold noodles at least once during the past week?  Not even together…we live in SD, OC, IE, and LA!

It’s like a domino effect.  By the way, these are all homemade except one.

Can you guess which one cheated?
