Quick and Easy Budget Friendly Dinners

Sunday was so crazy. We had our Sunday dinner, but I still need a day or two to get my post ready. I have a recipe for you in the meantime.

It’s a super easy, super delish, big ol’ dinner I made for Chase to take home. It makes six hungry man servings.

Vegetable Yakisoba

Adapted from

1 lb. soba noodles, cooked
1 cup chopped fresh onion
2 – 16 oz. bags frozen stirfry veggies
garlic salt & pepper

1 cup ketchup
¼ cup soy sauce
1-2 t. wasabi powder

1. Cook noodles.
2. Sauté onion; add in veggies, seasonings, and heat through.
3. Make sauce.
4. Mix altogether.
5. Eat!

I also made the Vegetable Biryani from LDV for Chase to take home. It is excellent.

I’m just making sure Chase gets his veggies!

Please come back for Sunday dinner. It was amaaaaazing and I’ll give you 2 recipes!

Yay for yakisoba! My old Japanese teacher had a special recipe that always sold out at our annual Asian Arts Festival. I think the trick was in the sauce, but I also never knew how she kept the noodles intact (it's hard!)
