how yum does this look?
My chapchae looking suitably fancy
I've  had a desire lately, to make chapchae,which  is a Korean noodle salad. All the recipes I read online told me 10 minutes would be all I'd need to do the prep. Maybe 10 minutes in like the year 1800, I don't know who's 10 minutes. I spent about an hour cutting the carrots into wee "matchstick" size pieces, slicing the green onions, finely dicing the garlic..I had to break out the ol' Ginsu for that.

There are heaps of steps, including cutting the noodles once they've been cooled, with scissors, and the same for the spinach, but it so worth it, because yum!
