Same Old Thing

I heard on a show the other day that people get in a rut and have the same old thing for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  In our house I find this to be true.  We have the same meal each week, with maybe a different side or cooked just a little different.  What a rut.  Since my Hubs has recently gone back to work, I now do the cooking and try to keep up with the laundry.  Last night I decided to try and make something Asian.  One of our favorite cuisines is Asian.  I had looked at some recipes.  I didn't have all the right ingredients so I just kinda made it up as I went along.

I thought it turned out rather well.  The Boy was very impressed, he wanted to know where I bought the meal.

I don't have a name for the meal, but here is my recipe.

1 pound cooked ground beef
2 packages of Ramen Noodles cooked accordingly discard seasoning packet
1 package of frozen Japanese vegetables steamed
1/2 Cup stir fry sauce
1/2 Cup cashews
2 scallions cut on a diagonal

Combine cooked ground beef, Ramen noddles and Japanese vegetable together.  Add stir fry sauce and mix well.  Add in cashews.  Mix again pour into serving bowl and top with a few more cashews and the scallions.

This weekend was the Tri-State Music Festival in our town.  Local schools come to compete in marching, concert performance and solo or ensembles.  The Boys elementary band got a I in concert performance.  Two days later it was time to march in the parade.  This covers a six block square that is downtown.  He was nervous about this event, as were some of his friends I talked to.  Luckily there was no rain just a little cold and windy.  A good time was had by all the band members.

The band received II for their marching performance.  A very good job for 5th and 6th graders.
