I had a great weekend. I got to see old friends and eat good food. That’s all I ask, really.
Friday night we never did watch any of those movies. We got distracted by the Discovery Health Channel, which was running Hoarders and Addicted. It’s like a train wreck and we couldn’t look away!
We did manage to watch Fantastic Mr. Fox last night though, and it was delightful! A Wes Anderson picture through and through. Our favorite line was “No you’re not, you’re disloyal.” I am a huge Jason Schwartzman fan, and his delivery through the whole film was spot on, but that line was priceless.
I can only handle so much fun though, and last night I was exhausted! I decided to make a ramen pancake for dinner because they are so super easy*. But when I went to get started I discovered we were out of ramen. I didn’t even know that could happen. I mean, we always have ramen. Last week there was a paper bag on the doorstep and they asked us to fill it up for the food bank and set it back outside, which I did, and I guess I gave the food bank all of the ramen. I tell you what, we are going to the grocery store today, because when you don’t even have ramen, you don’t have much, now do you?
No worries, it ended up OK, because we did have Colby jack cheese, tortillas, salsa and green onions. So I made a quesadilla. Not the height of nutrition, but adding salsa and green onions to the cheese before you cook it makes it a super good treat.
*Boil a packet of ramen noodles and drain. Beat one egg with the flavor packet from the noodles in a bowl. Add the noodles to the egg bowl and mix together. Add the ramen and egg to a hot skillet (sprayed with whatever) and cook until the egg sets and the ramen get brown crispy bits. Easy peasy. I also like to add mushrooms, green onion, shredded carrot or whatever else I have. If you want to sauté veggies in the same pan, you can, and then just add the ramen and egg on top of that! It’s a super cheap dinner (we split one pancake) and it’s a great way to use up veggies.
