Quick and easy, but homemade, hot, and tasty!

A buck or two well spent!

Blame my poor photography, but this bowl of soup for lunch today was just the ticket!

Manolie made a soup stock from pork bones, adding a little xylitol sweetener to reduce any pork fragrance to the kitchen. (She could have added yellow onions, but didn't this time.)

While the soup stock was bubbling away, she chopped up enough pork to make the pork meatballs you see on the top of the bowl of soup surrounded by slices of tomatoes.

She cooked the meatballs (100% pork) in the by then boiling soup stock and added Ramen-type noodles and chopped spring onion tops.

The cooked noodles went in the bottom of two of our large individual-sized soup bowls, soup stock, and spring onions were added, and the pork balls were put on top surrounded by the sliced tomatoes.

Provide a slice of lemon, any favorite seasonings (I like Bragg's Aminos) and have a soup spoon and a pair of chopsticks (or fork, for the uninitiated) and sit down to a quick and easy bowl of tasty, hot homemade soup for lunch (or anytime!)

      Sherry Hewins - I'm not sure you can still find enough water to make the soup, but it will sure hit the spot, if you can!

      livingpah2004 - I'd share a bowl with you, if you were here!

      hoteltravel - She makes Pat Mi Krob Lao, too, along with other "Thai" dishes that originally came fro Laos when the French gave part of Laos away.

      pandula77 - I am still waiting for you to let me know. I hope you are still here. I will have to check to see.

      b. Malin - It will be great having you back here regularly, too!

      mackyi - I hope this was added to your list of "quick favorites. Let me know.

      It has been said that cooking is an art. I truly belief this! Cooking is really just being creative and the willingness to try different ways of preparing food. Thanks for sharing your work of art. This is something worthwhile trying!

      This is the most unusual recipe I have read. No list of ingredients with measurements. Or step-by-step instructions. But the description and photo looks appetizing enough to make me want to try this out. Voted up and interesting.

      mmm... sounds like quite a bargain. Cheap and easy and quite an improvement on plain old ramen noodles. Thank you for sharing.
