Yesterday was a Ramen kind of day.

Irisa Raina 9


This was what I came up with yesterday, I wanted to use up the last little bit of smoked turkey we had left in the freezer.
There was just enough for one pot of soup.
Sorry there are not any pictures of the finished recipe, I wasn’t going to post this but my husband, Bob W and GF said I should so here it is!
