Beef and Vegetables Over Rice Noodles

With the holidays and college starting I have FINALLY gotten a chance to post something.  A few things have changed, one being that I am on my official “getting older” medicine-prescription Nexium.  I have been advised to avoid anything spicy (not happy about that), citrus (Eh-can be ok with that) and tomatoes (hmmmm-thats going to… Continue reading Beef and Vegetables Over Rice Noodles

Ramen ‘Rocks’ Again

I want to wish everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving weekend. We have absolutely no plans but we do have a smoked ham. 😊 Ramen Noodles-I swore after my first apartment that I would never, EVER eat them or Kraft mac and cheese EVER, EVER again.  I am sure I’m not alone here.  I have… Continue reading Ramen ‘Rocks’ Again

Pig & Pickle Pasta Salad

With all the football games on yesterday I neglected to post this recipe from the day before.  OOPS!!  The Texans won so that made me happy.  I am not a huge football fan but gotta support my home team.  The dogs were watching us watch football-how sad are those little faces. It was soooo beautiful outside-it… Continue reading Pig & Pickle Pasta Salad

Sriracha Salmon With Creamy Macaroni and Cheese

Good Morning Friends….Hope everyone has something fun planned today.  We had a great time playing pool yesterday even though I didn’t win a single game (very odd) ….came close but scratched on the eight ball THREE TIMES.  Three bonehead shots in one day.  It was nice to spend some time with my husband (and he got to… Continue reading Sriracha Salmon With Creamy Macaroni and Cheese
