MerryCarey, it's an easy one and everyone in the family are making it now. It's actually Fried Ramen Noodles but we nicknamed it, "Christmas Noodles" during that time since it is requested by everyone for him to cook it.

Pkg. of Ramen Noodle any flavor
1 egg
meat and/or veggies of your choice

Cook noodles according to directions. Drain all the liquid.

In a separate bowl scramble an egg and add the seasoning package to it. Whatever veggies or meat you want add to egg mixture.

I personally like chopped onion, corn and broccoli in mine.
My son loves to add a can of tuna to his. He sometimes adds a can chicken. He changes it up all the time.
You can add just about anything to it.

Add cooked noodles to egg mixture and mix well.

Add a little oil to the skillet (not too much because it will get too greasy) and fry until lightly crispy. He sometimes makes them in patties to have as a sandwich adding lettuce and tomato. Other times he stir frys it just scrambling it up while cooking.

There you go!

At least we have the waterpark to look forward to this afternoon!

I hope y'all have a great day!
Have fun at the waterpark!!!

You might be pleasantly surprised......

You all have just made me decide on dinner tonight. Mac and Cheese! Whoo Hoo!
I made a tray of baked macaroni and cheese with dinner last night, the kids have been eating the leftovers all day.
I have a recipe for a Pumpkin Baked Ziti, I need to give it a try one of these days.

At least Brockville is only about an hour train ride/drive from Ottawa...It's an easy travel.

No plans for tonight. I will probably go to the gym at my normal time and then see what is happening afterward. Kim is in Toronto for a bachelorette party, so I'm free to roam if I want to. We'll see what happens.

I hope everyone is having a great Friday... and ready for a monumentous milestone celebration on Sunday. 3/4 to the Christmas Season! It's a good thing that my two new blu rays (Elf - I wanted to upgrade from DVD) and Polar Express arrived in the mail yesterday. Perfect timing!

Have a great day, everyone!
Good luck with the job Brent!

Good afternoon!
I hope everyone is well!
I am taking a quick coffee break and wanted to say hello
My husband finished installing all of the wood floors and will begin to sand them tonight. The next few days are going to be interesting. We have friends that are letting us have their camper to park in our driveway until the floors are finished. I guess we will try and make do with that for as long as we can. We'll see how it goes. I'm trying not to panic, lol. I'm not happy about the whole thing but I want it done now before the girls start school. I'm hoping the kids will be able to stay with their friends for a day or two to make it a little bit easier on them. I also have two cats and two dogs to deal with. We are going to pack up what we think we will need and I am trying to get all of my laundry finished. I was writing out a grocery list earlier but I realized I better put off my food shopping. I will take it day by day. Wish me luck!
I will pop in when I can!

Yes, I guess I did. Well, you're a much better bike-rider and grandma than I could ever be! And all of my cakes start as a packaged cake mix, so I'm sure you have me beat there.
