Sometimes, especially on a chilly day (or night), there are few things more delightful than a piping-hot bowl of noodle soup.
Okay, so much of the ingredients in this were of the “instant” variety: the そば buckwheat noodles were the store-bought dry kind, the soup was seasoned with condensed bottled つゆ, and the kamaboko―well, heck, it’s highly unlikely that i’ll ever make  my own fishcake from scratch.
Nevertheless, the soup base consisted of homemade chicken stock (or was it pork stock?  it was 4 years ago, cripe~), and the scallions were fresh.  Though i can’t―for the life of me―recall what else i had on the side… Oh well~

Simple, yet flavorful.  Or at least that’s how i like to remember it.  Yum, ha~       >[:p
