Tasty Tuesday 1/26/16

Lately I've been wanting some chowmein, I haven't been able to go out and get some so I decided to try my luck and make some. It came out decent and didn't taste that bad, but I still felt like it was missing something, so next time I'll have to play around a little with flavor. For the most part though it was tasty! 

I started with some cabbage mix and cooked it with some oil for a few minutes..

Next, while the cabbage was cooking, I made the sauce with soy sauce, sesame oil, hoisin sauce, some brown sugar (not pictured), and some garlic..

I just eye balled it..

Careful with the sesame oil, a little goes along way..

Then I took my already cooked chicken and my yakisoba noodles and mixed it with the cabbage. 

(I used three packages of yakisoba noodles) 

*(also make sure you loosen up the noodles before you mix it. There's directions on the back..)



When I got that all mixed up I used one of the flavor packets from the yakisoba and mixed that with 1/2 cup of water and the sauce that I made. Cooked it for a few mins a wah-lah! Dinner was done pretty quickly! I used already cooked chicken because on school nights, there never seems to he enough time to get everything done! You can choose any type of meat you prefer! 

I also made some egg rolls! 
I made some more of the sauce from earlier and mixed it with the cabbage and the rest of the chicken and wrapped them up and fried them for a few mins on each side. 


   I've never made egg rolls before and these came out pretty good for my first time! 
 
Added some fortune cookies and had us a dinner in under 30mins! 

Not the best pic but hey that's okay..

2016

The start of a new year...

Hey folks! Okay so it's been close to a year since I've been on, so I probably don't have ANY more followers :(. That's okay I'll just talk to my self. LOL! 

Welcome to 2016! I'm not going to say I have a New Years resolution per say, more like baby resolutions. Haha! There's a lot of stuff I want to accomplish, time doesn't stand still and I'm not getting any younger here. So I'm thinking I will re-do my '101 goals in 1001 days', that seems more realistic to me, so keep a look out for my *new* list of goals! 



 
Tatiana is 8 months today!

Hello March

It seems like time is just flying by! Maybe it's true, the older you get, the faster time goes! Can't believe next month we will have our new little addition here, then the month after is Isaiah's birthday, then they're out of school for summer. 

So I think I'm going to start a little goal plan every month with a few things I would like to accomplish for that month.

So for this month I would like to:
1. Start the chore chart 
2. Finish getting the kids room organized
3. Finish getting my coupon binder in order
4. Start crafting again

That's it for now. Hopefully I can at least accomplish one, I've been feeling pretty lazy lately haha.

New year, same me..


Well with that being said, there will always be things to change each year as life changes. 2014 wasn't a bad year, started out a little rough, but ended great. Filled with love and happiness! My girls had their birthdays then there was Christmas, and every thing else that happened in between. I am very blessed to have my babies and my family alive and well and living each day, I couldn't ask for more. I am very happy to continue on into 2015 with the same love + 1 coming in April :), which we have chose to keep the gender a surprise, but that failed. The ultrasound tech didn't do a very good job keeping it a secret. Anyway here are a few pics from last year..








Our two new additions :)

Tasty Tuesday 6/17/14

Since it's getting hot, I decided to try these gummy bear spritesicles. 

Super easy and only a few things needed:

1. Sprite
2. Gummy bears
3. Popsicle holder/maker


I started by making four groups of gummy bears to put in each of the popsicle makers, then I poured the Sprite in..

Then freeze..

Then eat! 

My kids only ate about half of the popsicle, because they didn't like the gummy bears hard. I thought they were pretty good!

Saturday confessions..6-15-14

First, I know it's Sunday, so with that being said..HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!!

So my Saturday but Sunday confession is that I cheated..yes I gave into temptation! I cheated on my diet with two donuts and a bunch of candy, and well some other things I probably shouldn't ate. I just couldn't help myself I have a sweet tooth! So today I started back on my diet! Last I checked I was 7lbs down so I have to keep going to reach my goal! Wish me luck!..

Throwback Thursday 6-12-14

Ok guys, who remembers this...


I begged my mom to get me one and when she finally did I was so happy. Lol. I think everybody had one of these things, I would play with it constantly and ended up with a couple of them, then they started dieing and I would have to start all over. Haha.

Engagement, Party, & Last day of school!


I am SO excited! I got engaged! I never thought I would see this day honestly. I have always wanted to get married, but then changed my mind and just thought I would probably die alone as the crazy cat lady or something. Lol. I am really just at a loss for words and I think I am still in shock. I can not wait to start planning all the details and look forward to the day I can marry my love! 

Joe let me pick out my own ring and couldn't be more happier :)


Now on to the party! My son turned 7 (yes seven, I can't believe it either!) years old on May 26th, which Memorial Day happened to fall on this year. So we had his party on June 1st, because everybody is usually busy Memorial Day weekend. Anyway we went with a carnival theme and to my surprise the party came together so well and everything turned out great! Minus all the decorations I forgot to bring..






We also rented a waterslide bounce house. The kids had a blast! We played "carnival games" like bobbing for apples, ring toss, throw the ball in the cup, and a sack race, not sure if they have those at the carnival but it was still fun and funny! 


For food we had again "carnival food" hotdogs, nachos, cotton candy, popcorn, candy (of course), and other goodies. 

I also made these cupcakes that looked like little popcorn containers, I just covered the paper part of the cupcake with popcorn tape, since I couldn't find the red and white stripped paper/tape, then I covered the top of the cupcakes with frosting, put marshmallows on top and sprayed it with gold, yes gold, since the store didn't have yellow ( just my luck) food coloring spray. They turned out really cute! (Not sure if you can see them in the pic)

 
My melted snow cone with a fork lol


I got a lot of compliments on the party, I am so glad it turned out good everybody had fun, even if I forgot to decorate. Lol.

Well the kids last day of school was June 4th, it's bittersweet, I feel my kids are growing soo fast these days! It seems it was just the beginning of the school year not to long ago. Well now I have a 2nd grader and with a little struggle this year I have a 5th grader!
