We have an exciting weekend coming up. We've got all of our Tucson family coming up to Phoenix for an AWESOME celebration. Our cousins, Tim and Gina, are finally making their little man an official part of the family on Saturday, National Adoption Day. The whole family is getting together to celebrate on Saturday, and again on Sunday for his Christening. We couldn't be more excited for them and are really excited to have the family all up in our neck of the woods for the celebration - we'll be sure to post pictures so you can see what we did and just how cute there baby boy is...we're talking Gerber baby material.

Relatively idiot proof - even I couldn't blow it. It was simply adding a few pre-cooked items together.
Cheap - when one of the key ingredients is Ramen, you know it will be reasonably priced.
Versatile - you can make it your own or clean through your kitchen by swapping out the meat, mixing in different spices, even changing noodles for rice.
I liked the fact that we just had to open some bags, cut some chicken, throw a few ingredients together and we were done.
Anything that involves chicken and stir-fry can be put into my belly.
This was an incredibly cheap meal.
I liked that we were able to make the Teriyaki sauce ourselves.
Flavor - the teriyaki sauce we made was very good, but I would like to try it with some kick - somehow make it spicier.
Meat - Ah, the age old debate of white meat or dark. Ronnie's into DRY white meat, so the chicken was a bit dry. I'd like to try it with dark meat (probably won't happen though!!)
Noodles - I would cook the noodles a little bit less before adding them to the cooked veggies and chicken. They ended up a little on the soggy side. Perhaps undercooking them before adding them to everything else and allowing them to finish cooking once added to the veggies and chicken would have helped.
Next time, I'd like to cut the chicken into smaller pieces.
I wouldn't mind a little bit of heat in this dish.
I wish Bird's Eye would pay attention to the random vegetable roots I kept biting into.
I'd mess around with the Teriyaki sauce a bit more and possibly coat the Ramen noodles first, before adding the vegetables.
I wouldn't mind trying it with rice instead of Ramen
Here's our overall rating (with 1 being the worst meal we've ever had and 10 being the best):
Mandi's Rating: 8
Ronnie's Rating: 6.5
