Ramen noodle stir fry

I’ve made this recipe since high school, pretty basic but it really adds a lot of flavor to your regular ramen. Great, easy meal for college kids or beginner cooks: you just need a stove and a skillet! Note this recipe will feed two people, but it also reheats well, so it’s a perfect 2 in 1, make it for dinner and also eat it for lunch the next day meal.

Ramen Noodle Stir Fry

  • 1 packet Chicken flavored Ramen noodles
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1/4 onion
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • Other optional vegetable choices: zucchini, brocolli, carrots, baby corn
  1. Heat up a skillet on medium heat
  2. Cut your veggies and chicken into bite size pieces
  3. Add oil to skillet and saute your veggies and chicken
  4. While those are cooking, break up your ramen and add to a microwavable bowl filled with water. Microwave for 2 minutes, stir, and microwave for another two minutes. You’ll need about 1/3 cup of water left in the noodles, so drain some water or add some to the bowl depending on how much the noodles soaked up.
  5. Add the soy sauce, pepper flakes and the seasoning packet to the bowl. As soon as the chicken and veggies are cooked through, add the contents of the bowl to the skillet.
  6. Stir well, reduce heat and cook about 5 more minutes or until the noodles have soaked up all the water

Enjoy!

DIY Hobby Lobby inspired wall art

See this beauty right here? I made this. For less than $15. I also made it with my 8 year old sister. It’s a good craft for kids, we made three of them! One for me, one for her, and one for my best friend’s birthday.

I saw something like this at Hobby Lobby and instead of paying like $30 bucks for it, I decided to make it myself.

Here’s how we did it!

You’ll need:

A poster board or canvas

A few sheets of scrapbook paper, pick ones that will coordinate together and match the color schemes where you want to hang it

A stencil (unless you have a steady hand to paint it!) I chose a pretty simple one from Hobby Lobby

Some acrylic paint. I used tan for the chevron and black for the stencil and birdie eyes

Rubber cement

A ruler

Cardstock or index cards

 

First we made the chevron stencil using a ruler and index cards. Draw your chevron on one card, cut it out, then use that as a guide to cut enough cards to go across your poster board.

Trace the chevron with light pencil marks, making sure the pattern goes straight across and are equal lengths apart from each other.

Paint your chevron. You’ll probably need to let this dry overnight.

Then paint on a clothesline with black paint, tree branches would be cute too.

Lightly tape your stencil onto the poster board and carefully paint over it. You have to be very careful not to move it or it will look really sloppy once you take it off.

Draw some organic birdies of different sizes and trace it onto the back of your scrapbook paper. Then cut them out and rubber cement them to your poster board. You can use the black paint to put little eyes on them.

Let your masterpiece dry and admire your work! Scrapbook paper is an easy, inexpensive way to add some pretty designs to your artwork.

Frame your work for a more professional look. I got my frame from Walmart for around $10.

Don’t worry about it being perfect! The stripes make it look super neat, so your birdies look good without being perfect!

Good luck and happy crafting!
