If Your Looking For a Good Recipe...

Then this is NOT the blog for you.  I'm usually more into home decor, crafts, and party ideas.  But after the marriage nuptials, I think all newlyweds wants to learn to cook/cook more. 

This is an EASY PEASY recipe...well...more of a CONCOCTION I threw together awhile back to please the Mr.  It takes NO time to prep and less than 30 minutes to cook so I can spend more time crafting and less time in the kitchen.  

What you'll need:
-2 bags of frozen stir fry veggies (I use the Kroger brand and they're usually on sale for $1 every other week)
-Rotini Noodles
-Teriyaki Sauce

Sorry, Brian peeled the label off the teriyaki sauce, but it's Kikoman's Teriyaki Sauce. We use this stuff ALL the time on pasta, chicken, etc... just remember it's the one with the purple top.

-Boil water and cook rotini.

-Cook vegetables in a pan.  I pour a lil bit of Olive Oil on my veggies to get them going.

- Drain your noodles and make sure your veggies are COMPLETELY cooked.  Then pour the noodles in your veggie pan and drench it in your sauce.  And TA DA!!!!

Tonight  I was feeling super Rachel Ray and added cashews.  DARING!! I even tried a new sauce:
I had it on hand and wanted to switch things up a lil bit.  I've even added precooked chicken strips to this dish before.  I  REALLY suck at cooking chicken so I use the precooked stuff you throw on salads, but it can be a bit pricey. 

I'm sure if you follow me on twitter, you saw that I had a LIL surgery this past Thursday (I about had a Twitter breakdown on Friday morning, sorry Twitter followers).  Since I had some time to catch up on daytime television (BORING), I got COMPLETELY MESMERIZED by the Food Network.  Holy Pajamas!!! I'm officially addicted.  I even started a Food Network account and started adding recipes to my recipe box.  So far, I think the Barefoot Contessa is my favorite.  Who knows, maybe this will spark the Ina Garten in me.  

I did want to give a BIG THANK YOU to my BFF, Alyssa, for taking care of me this weekend while hubby was working and for CONSTANTLY checking up on me and putting up with me.

Thank You to Derrick and Sarah for the chocolate peanut butter and popcorn.  Does anyone else like peanut butter with their popcorn?? Well just add chocolate peanut butter and it's HEAVENLY!!!! Thanks for thinking of me during your busy tax season!!

And thank you to Mrs. D for sharing some of your 12 layer chocolate cake.  IT WAS AMAZING and I still can't believe you made it!!!! Lil "happys" on my front door step from Mr. and Mrs. D are my favorite =)
