Last night was one of those nights...

Last night was a complete and total night where I needed this at 5pm to make it through....


Yep.  A 5pm cup of coffee.  Not enough half caf...full on, loaded up caffeinated coffee.  (With some fancy creamer, too.)

And it was  also one of those nights where children ate a mixed bag of things for dinner - sandwiches, leftovers, etc.  and Chris and I were left to fend for ourselves.  I had this...


I love ramen.  Really and truly I do.  Chris laughs at me because I am very particular about following directions and recipes when in the kitchen.  He likes to experiment and play around and I am always saying things like,
don't change anything, don't add anything, make sure you cook that to temperature
Except when it comes to ramen. This is what I do....boil water, dump in noodles, cook for three minutes, scoop out noodles (leaving water in the pot on the stove) into bowl, then dump the powder on top, stir around with spoon to mix in powder.  I just don't like for it to be soup.  I want a bowl of noodles without the liquid.  I used to eat ramen about, um, err, 4 or 5 times a week.  Nutritional, I know.  When I was in college I would make it in my dorm room using the coffee pot.  True story.

Speaking of making things....
Bob gave us a ton of fresh oranges and so we decided to make some freshly squeezed juice. I am glad that we don't get a score from the health department because I'm pretty sure that this would put us in the failing category.  Just sayin.  They would shut. us. down.


 
ps - Please excuse my lack of editing.  It was just one of those nights.

yep I'm pretty sure the Health Dept has some pretty strict rules about squeezing oj while in your underwear.

Remind me never to drink OJ at your house. ;)

Glad y'all are having a good time down South. See you soon!

I love ramen too. I always find excuses to eat it in the winter.
