Homemade Microwave Meal- Asian Noodles

     I believe I am on to something! Lately I have been seeing if stove top meals are better than microwave meals. My research seems to point to differences like how much time food is cooked, what the food is, and how powerful the microwave is plays a big roll in the tastiness of the meal. So my short answer is if you got the time and are feeding more than yourself  the stove is better. If you just want to eat quick and your cooking for yourself, the microwave is key. I am simple and filling meals all day but a simpler and still filling meal .... where is it? One is right hear! This is my #tastytuesday Homemade Microwave Meal- Asian Noodles.  The first in this series is on my Instagram @clynnsart follow over there for more meal ideas.

Preparation time: 2 minutes , Cook time: 7 minutes
Items needed: A Taste of Thai  Vermicelli Rice Noodles Angel Hair, Kroger Frozen Onion,Carrot, Celery Mix, Himalayan Pink Salt, Black Ground Pepper and Onion Powder, Water and Wax Paper.

1) Get a microwave safe bowl and break off a handful of the noodles, add water to the bowl until the noodles are covered or almost covered.
2) Then cut open and add the frozen vegetables after rinsing, about a handful or a cup full. It really depends on the amount of vegetables you want. They too should be under or almost under the water.
3) Add the seasonings, 3 shakes of  salt, 2 shakes of pepper and 2 shakes of onion powder. Then cover with wax paper. ( All seasonings are optional use what you like )
4) Put in the microwave for 6 minutes on medium high or high depending on your microwave.
5) At the half way point of 3 minutes stir up the soup. Replace the wax paper Then start back up.
6) When it’s done stir again, cover back up and start microwave for 1 more minute.
7) The food is done! The bowl will be very hot so be careful removing it from the microwave. Allow to cool for a minute , stir it, taste it and add what seasoning you may need to complete your meal!
8) Time to eat!!!

As with anything new you have to adjust as needed, and all cooking is at your own risk!

New Snack Alert

     This is a new snack alert! At least for me this is new. Dollar Tree store usually has a variety of chip snacks, on this shopping day I found these Pop Corners Sweet and Salty Kettle Corn snack and I loaded up the cart! They have a good balance of  salty and sweet and for $1.00 they are a deal. That’s why I say don’t sleep on cheap! 

     What new snacks have you found lately? Comment below. Until the next blog post!
