So recently I have been looking for ways to up my culinary skills because the usual meals were getting to be repetitive and boring. So one day while strolling the aisles of Trader Joe's (which is my favorite place to be) I decided to pick up some ingredients that would intensify my ramen. My girls love ramen and I wanted to see if I could do something different from them just throwing the pack in the microwave and dressing it with the seasoning.

I have seen many different ways on how to take ramen up a notch but in my opinion I beleive I have hit the nail on the head with this ramen recipe. It's quick simple and easy to prepare and anyone can recreate this delicious dish. I find that everytime I make this ramen dish I'm always adding something to it to make it even more tasteful. For this meal you will need.


Ingredients:

  • 1 32oz Trader Joe's Miso Ginger broth

  • Trader Joe's Crunchy Chili Onion (can add as much as you like depending on how spicy you like your ramen)

  • Trader Joe's Furikake Japanese Multi-Purpose Seasoning (again as much as you like for taste)

  • 4 packs of Nissin Top Ramen Beef or Chicken (to include the seasoning packets)

  • Beef or Chicken depending on what flavor you're preparing.


Optional Ingredients:

  • Mushrooms

  • Baby Corn

  • Seaweed

  • Carrots

  • Onions/garlic

  • Bean sprouts

  • Sriracha sauce

  • Boiled egg

  • Fish Cake

  • Bok Choy

  • Green scallions

Steps:

  • Pour Miso broth into medium/large pot and add your Ramen noodles(I always use three to four packs). Set your eye to medium high heat and wait for it to boil. While boiling add your noodle seasoning packets.

  • Add in the Crunchy Chili Onion and Japanese Multi-Purpose seasoning(as much as you need for taste).

  • If you should choose to use beef or chicken cook and add it to your pot. I like to get thin cut beef or cut my chicken into strips or cubes.

  • Adding other ingredients are optional. I prefer to cook my mushrooms, baby corn, carrots onions, garlic and of course my egg.

Tip: Sometimes the miso broth cooks down a little fast to prevent that I add about 4 oz of water.


This Ramen meal should take no more than 30 mins and I promise you you will not be disappointed. Please if you try this meal let me know in the comments how you liked it and give it a thumbs up.


After all is said and done, more is said than done....

Hello all! So, as you know from the previous post my family and I recently moved to Colorado from Texas, and I stated that I've been decorating our new home. Well, I come to you guys for a little help. I want to first start with the living room and the main bedroom.

Okay first let me tell you all what I'm looking to create. I want a luxury feel all throughout our home. I want to make it a place where we never want to leave. I'm a minimalist so I don't want it to be too much over the top in my older years I have come to understand that less is more. I also have come to terms with some things take time and you don't have to do it all at once however I feel as though I'm halfway there in both rooms and with you guys help, I know I will finish up and move on to the next two rooms. One can say this post will be an ongoing post with updates every time there is a change made in the decor.


Let's start with the living room for the most part I have over half of it done but I feel as though something is missing to wrap it all up. For the walls I want to paint them a clean and crisp white to keep the openness and pull the carpet of course and find the right wall art. This is where you guys come in, I'm stuck on what floor pattern and what kind of wall art. I don’t feel as though I need a couch because of how open it is to the kitchen. We also have a movie theater downstairs, so this is what I call the sitting area. I was thinking of maybe adding a record player and a in wall fireplace to give it that cozy feel. I want this room to have a very relax feel because this is where my husband and I come to meditate, read, and listen to music.

My husband pick the color for the our room and of course I agreed but I had to suggest the white

ceilings because he was at first trying to paint the whole room the blue color. I mean I like the color but not that much. As you can see, we are not done with painting. We decided we'll wrap up when we get the panels for the accent wall which will be behind the bed. I just want to know what you guys think as far as accents for the walls. I have some things on my Amazon home and decor list, but I would like to get you all’s opinion and maybe you guys have suggestions of different places to go for decorations. We're going to get another tree and put it in the opposite corner to balance out the other. What do you all think about putting a little table under the television so in that way we will have some where to put the game console and remotes. Donovan was thinking of putting a in wall fireplace, but I told him we would already have one in the living area, and I just think that would be too much. I don't know what do y'all think? Would it be too much?

As I stated earlier, I will keep you guys updated and any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Look out for this post to be updated sometime in the near future. Thank you in advance for any advice or suggestions.

I want to start off by first apologizing to you all for I took such a long break. It was, however, a break well needed. You know when you get that "life just get in the way" feeling? Yes, that was

me! I know most of you don't know this, but I was in Texas for quite some time when my husband and I had the fabulous idea of moving. At first we were just going to move to a different part of Texas but he nixed that by saying he wanted to get out of the South. We went on the hunt to find another state to move to.We narrowed our options down to Nevada, Arizona and Colorado. Being that we only been to two out of the three states we decided to remove Arizona from the list.

After removing Arizona we then started a pros and cons list between Nevada and Colorado. Long

story short we were looking to move to Las Vegas however I did not see it fit to raise kids in Vegas and that is just my personal opinion. Colorado became our destination. Now keep in mind we decided to do all this in the height of the pandemic so there were restriction and guidelines that we had to follow. Determining our destination was the first step the second step was to sale our house

in Texas. Of course we had to find a relator because trying to sale a house in the middle of a pandemic has got to be one of the crazy hardest things to do. Step three deciding where we want to stay in Colorado and finding a relator in that location. We thought we would want to stay in Denver however with it being the capital the houses and cost of living was way out of our budget. Finally we decided on Colorado Springs. We virtually met the most awesome realtor who help guide us to a nice little cozy town outside of Colorado Springs bay the name of Peyton. Selling the house in Texas we hit a couple of snafus the first two buyers backed out and we thought oh no this is bad. However our realtor assured us that sometimes things like that happen. When we finally got an offer which was a great one we sold. Finally being able to put the house in Texas behind us we

had to find a house in the Springs. as I stated earlier our realtor ended up finding us an amazing home on the outskirts. Of course we drove from Texas to Colorado breaking the trip up in two days because we have two kids and two dogs to think about. When we arrived in Colorado it was everything my family and I expected. What made me happy was the fact the girls and the dogs were happy. You would think that once we got here I could settle and come back to you guys that was so not the case. Once we got here we had to hit the ground running with first my husband and I celebrating the fact we brought and upgraded to a bigger home, unpacking, decorating, utilities and a whole bunch of other adult responsibilities. After we finally got some what settled we wanted to go and explore and check out all the cool things Colorado had to offer. As I said before life just got in the way and that is why it took me so long to come back to you all. I would like to say to those of you who are still here a big thank you for not leaving and I'm so happy to be back. I feel as though the break was long needed but at the same time a little too long. I promise you all that my next break won't be as long.
