With the temps finally cooling down a bit here in Austin, I’m embracing every possible chance to get outside and soak up the sunshine and cool breezes. And now that I’m working downtown, Adam and I have been trying to squeeze in a few lunch dates — our offices are only a few blocks from each other, so it’s way more doable to squeeze in a midday meet-up than it used to be when I worked from home. Last week, I surprised him with a picnic lunch at a park down the street. This soup-in-a-jar concept is so genius for a picnic — or a perfectly packed work lunch — since you layer all the ingredients and then just pour hot broth over it all when you’re ready to eat. In honor of National Noodle Day on October 6th, I teamed up with Simply Asia to create these jars with their delicious Soba Noodles and Ramen Soy Ginger Chicken Broth which took my soup jars to the next level.
