So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Galatians 6:9

Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished! Luke 1:45

Monday Meal

I've been noticing my LID counter up there lately. In one week, it will have reached the minimum wait we were initially told for a child match. When we began this process it was only 15 -18 months. I feel like that is another step but it feels weird to know that if our paperwork had already been in, we might be getting a match soon. Doesn't matter though. Its in God's hands -- therefore whatever time it takes is just right.

So my recipe today is in honor of China, sort of, if a totally American recipe that is asian only because it has that in the name can be in honor of China. I think I originally found this recipe on the internet and then, in typical fashion, totally corrupted it such that it is now my very own with faint glimpses of its original form. It also now pays homage to my pattern laziness. Hope you like it.

Asian Beef and Noodles

1 lb. thinly sliced steak (as in Steak Um)
2 pkgs. Oriental style ramen noodles
1 small bag frozen stir fry vegetables

In a non-stick skillet, cook steak according to pkg directions seasoning with packets from ramen noodles. (In other words, sprinkle the seasoning packets from the ramens onto the steak as you cook it.) Allow to cool a little while you put on water to cook the noodles in. Break the noodles up into pieces before adding to the boiling water. While the noodles are cooking, start tearing the steak into pieces and add to your serving bowl. When the noodles have cooked appropriately, drain them and add to the steak in the serving bowl. Using the same skillet, stir fry the vegetables. Add to the steak and noodles. Toss to mix. Serve immediately. Leftovers reheated in the microwave are really good so don't throw out the extra. I imagine you could add other stuff but its really good this way.
