I am very proud to announce the birth of our first child together – Miles!
We’re about as happy as humanly possible! Happy 0th birthday, Miles!
Today’s a special day for us – five years ago today, we first talked to each other. We were both getting through the murky end of horrible relationships and found each other on an online dating website. She lived to far away – me in northern Washington, she in Northern California. That night we spoke on the phone for a whole 6 hours and all I wanted to do was to talk to her again. It was amazing; we found each other right when we most needed each other. Five years later, I’d like to announce that we’re expecting our first child together! We found out two weeks ago! We’re very excited and can’t wait to start this new adventure. To my wife – I love you and am supremely happy knowing you are in my life everyday. Happy Holidays to all!
Here’s another one from Nepal! Preeti translates to ‘love.’ I love instant noodles, so what better name for them? Let’s check this pack out!
Here’s the back of the packet (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat-free but check for yourself.
The noodles block. Pre-seasoned noodles that can be eaten uncooked as a snack as well.
A dual packet – soup base and chlili powder.
Here’s the red chili powder atop the soup base.
A packet of onion flavored oil.
Has a nice onion scent.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added red, orange and yellow bell peppers, broccoli, jalapeno peppers, Walla Walla sweet onion and some ground coriander on top. The noodles are crumbly, but also have a wonderful chew to them – decent backbone and something I thoroughly liked. The flavor is wonderful – garlic, cumin and a bit of heat and other flavors come together in an exotic and perfect way. It’s funny; my wife’s parents came up to be with us while my wife had surgery and her mom brought me a bag of bujia. Bhujia is a kind of snack mix that is very popular in India about Nepal. It’s dry and crunchy and all around great stuff with strong coriander, garlic and other spices. The flavor of these noodles and broth is very reminiscent of this. It’s no wonder on the back of the package it says you can just crush the block and eat it straight like bhujia! Here’s a recipe for aloo bhujia. I don’t know if it’s grammatically correct, but I must say I preeti Preeti! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 9504000021993.
Here’s a TV spot for Preeti.
