비빔국수

savory and refreshing

This is  Korean dish that I consider comfort food.  When I was younger, my mom made her version, and it always hit the spot and I felt I could go on 2nds even 3rds (often I did). That is what comfort food is, isn’t it? A dish that makes you feel good often having some kind of meaning/reason behind it.

The 0ther day I was over at my dear friend’s house. Things have been a little crazy for me these days, and ironically she made this for lunch. I never told her it was something that I loved a lot when I was younger nor that I hadn’t eaten it in a really long time. Even though her version is very different from my moms it made me really happy- same feeling I had when I last ate my mom’s version. I think I know why.  Couldn’t stop thinking about that satisfaction, so I demanded that she give me the recipe. Thank you Jin!

I just made this for lunch for my family- and they loved it.

It is so easy.

    This looks delicious. It’s funny how just smelling a certain food takes us back to our childhood. When I was younger chicken soup was always my comfort food!
