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.

  1. That looks and sounds yummy, Stefanie! I find myself in cooking ruts often...especially if I have not planned the meals ahead.
