The past days have been spent "training/learning" on Gam. Actually I really don't have an official name for "him" yet. I'll have to give that some thought.
Who has time to cook when quilting?! My DH and son's belly beg to differ. The first question my son will ask upon walking in from school is "What's for dinner?" Of course, I'd much rather hear, "How was your day, mom?" One of my many quick and easy and inexpensive meals is Top Ramen Noodles w/Beef. It isn't gourmet but it fills the void. So for the busy quilter on a budget and so that you can purchase another fat quarter here is the recipe:
1# ground beef, 3 pkgs Oriental Ramen Noodles, 2 c. frozen vegetable mixture (whatever kind you want), 1/4 t. ground ginger (I usually leave out), 3 c. water.
Brown beef into crumbles, pour off grease. Season beef with one season packet from packages of ramen noodles. Set beef to the side in a bowl. In the same pan - combine water, broke noodles, vegetables, ginger and remaining two packets of seasoning. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover; simmer for 3 to 7 minutes. Return beef to noodles and serve.
