Nescafe Cafe Creations

A coffee flavor for every mood.

Hubby got this bag full of flavorful coffee mix from his boss. Of the five flavors, I’m only familiar with the Black Roast. The other five flavors are all new to my palate.

Besides the Black Roast, my new favorites are the Mocha Latte and Double Latte. These are perfect for coffee lovers.

I’m enjoying the stash (until supplies last) while waiting for my Almond milk order to arrive.

Nescafe Cafe Creations comes with this dainty straw bag.

Simple Kimchi Fried Rice

Looks very appetizing right? Kimchi fried rice. No fancy ingredients there. Just a mixture of leftovers from our first Samgyupsal experience at home.

This is so easy to prepare.

Saute garlic and onion in a little amount of oil. Add leftover kimchi. Saute for a few minutes before adding pre-cooked rice. Slowly add in other ingredients: Odeng or fish cake, grilled woosamgyupsal. Mixed well. Let it cook for 10 minutes. Top with spring onion before turning off the heat. So easy right?

I was able to save our regular budget for breakfast because of this meal made from leftover ingredients. And it’s like we’ve extended our samgyupsal experience as well. Nutritious pa because its complete with veggies, meat and carbohydrates.

Happy cooking, ’til next recipe!

These are the only available ingredients for toppings I have in the kitchen. You can add variety of seafood for toppings such as, shrimps, mussels, squid.
