~ Dreamy abstraction in Four Square House on the Pairie

Month: August 2005

This is sort of a college survival food type of meal. It is good in a pinch when you need something fast and cheap. I have also used beef sausage. This meal will really only serve about two of use so with my family I double the recipe.


Ragin’ Ramen

main dish, pasta

4 cups water
2 packages ramen noodles with seasoning packet
2 cups assorted vegetables or 10 0z package
1/2 cups cooked chicken, beef, turkey or fish

In a large saucepan, put water on boil.
Chop fresh, thick vegetables like carrots and broccoli into small pieces.
Tear or slice leafy vegetables like cabbage and spinach. Chop green onions.
If using chopped frozen vegetables, leave as is.
When water boils. Add vegetables(except onions) and cook for one minute.
Add noodles, breaking if desired. Cook on medium-high for 2 minutes. Add
meat or eggs. If adding eggs, beat them together in a separate bowl and add
to hot soup, stir until cooked (about 1-2 minutes). Remove from heat and
stir in one seasoning package. Add other package if needed for taste. Serve
with green onions on top.


Yield: 4 servings

Shortly I will begin posting. I also hope you will find some enjoyment with some of the recipes that you try. I will usually post the source of the recipe but I do have some that I do not know the source so if you had made the recipe up please let me know so I can give proper credit. Sometimes when I make meals I made add food from many different places. This is one example. I have here a French/Indian pilaf becasue I tend to make my pilaf with whatever I feel like at the monent. This one I used chicken broth, carrots, green peas, dal, cumin and some other spice. We also have a french bread with Beef “Kaati” Kabab (Kaati Kabab) and Chicken Tikka using the Shan Brand mix. A word of caution here when using the mix. Be careful of the amount of the mix you use becasue it tend to be very spicy hot. I only use a small amount.

Good Eating!


Well we got lots of rain last night. As a matter of fact it was raining very hard when we came out of the Sam’s Club. We ended up waiting about 1/2 hour for it to stop poting before going to the car.

Livestock barn with chicken run attached Posted by Picasa


This is a picture of the run that we put on to the barn from the inside pen. Also shown is the net fence which costs a pretty penny. When I was attaching the charger in the barn the dogs were looking at me with the Oh, NO Alpha Female You Are NOT Turning on The Bite Me Charger. Ugh. HeHE

The Heat of Summer

It has been a while since I have lasted blogged. I just do not have much going one. It has been so HOT!!!!! here. I can hardly stand it. Well hopefully it will be a little cooler this weekend. I have worked every day since the 5th of July and could use the time to get things done.

The turkey have gotten huge as big volkswagens. I will have to make a trip soon to the processor. I do not look forward to a 3 hur drive with three golbers in back of the van.

The chickens that are left are doing very well but the yolks have gotten very pale because they have been only inside the barn since the racoon attack. This weekend I should be able to make a run
