So let's catch up about weekends for a second. This weekend we went out for some delicious Chinese food.
Not gonna lie, I am not the biggest fan of Chinese food usually. I can't stand Chinese takeaway, I hate the greasy feeling you get in your mouth that just won't shift.
I tend to find that all Chinese takeaway dishes taste very similar and I know real Chinese food definitely isn't supposed to be like that.
That's what was so good about the food on Saturday night. Real, authentic Chinese food and super cheap as well!
We had loads of dumplings which are pretty much my favourite things ever and something they called 'Big Plate Chicken' which was chicken cooked in a super fragrant broth with homemade noodles mixed in. Yum!
Anyway, this easy vegetable ramen might not quite be authentic but it is pretty tasty and for a 30 minute dish it'll definitely put a smile on your face!
