KDrama: 18 Again Review and Life Lessons

I started watching Kdrama a few years ago. It was influenced by my sister who is such a fan of Korean actors and I eventually got curious about it. It started with the trending Kdrama that time which I will write about later on. Initially, it was just a pastime because I really love binge watching tv series. Now, I found myself subscribed to Netlfix, Viu and other Kdrama platforms. The first Kdrama that I will be reviewing here is 18 Again. The story is about a young college couple Jung Da Jung (Kim Ha-neul) and Hong Dae Yong (Yong Sang-hyoon) who was blessed with fraternal twins Hong Shi-ah (Roh Jeong-eui) and Hong Shi-woo (Ryeoun). Their marriage started to fall apart when Jung Da Jung thinks that her husband has been into alcohol and not realizing they have pressing problems other than alcohol. Hong Dae Yong wished for him to turn back so he could fix his life, and suddenly morphs himself into a teenager with a mind of a 37 year old. He began living his life like a teenager and made

Creamy Spinach and Mushroom Fusili recipe

This weekend was quite an exhausting one for me juggling between the roles of being a mom, nurse, educator and manager of the house. Since I haven’t been gone to the market to buy out food for the coming week, I opt to do my lazy meal instead. This time I made it healthier by incorporating spinach and shiitake mushroom to the recipe. You know how I love Shiitake mushrooms right? Plus it’s a healthy alternative protein. So here it is:
 

Ingredients:
  • 250g Fusili Pasta, cooked
  • 3 pieces dried Shiitake mushrooms, rehydrated and cut into strips
  • 1 cup Spinach Leaves
  • Bay leaves
  • 1 ½ cup Fresh milk
  • 1 tbsp all purpose flour
  • One medium sized white onion, julienned
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp Oyster Sauce
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Olive oil
  • Parmesan cheese


Direction:
  1. Boil fusilli pasta according to package instructions. Drain and set aside.
  2. Drizzle pan with olive oil and sauté garlic and onion. Add in mushroom and spinach. Saute for another one minute.
  3. Add fresh milk and add in flour mix until combined. Wait until the sauce thickens and add oyster sauce. The oyster sauce will enhance the flavor of the spinach and mushroom. Add in the fusilli pasta and bay leaves. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Serve with grated parmesan cheese.


That’s my lazy meal for our Sunday family day. Mind you, my picky eater boy enjoyed this meal without knowing that there were green leaves on it. The colorful fusilli makes it more fun to eat.

Hope you enjoyed this recipe. Let me know if you tried this.
