My 365 Photo A Day Project – Day 183 – I’m confused…

I was in the Dollar General near my home and I had stopped in to grab some Ramen soup.  As you can imagine, this package caught my eye…

So what you are saying is….

You can cook Ramen in HALF THE TIME???  AND you can reduce sodium by 50%? 

How can this be??  I inspected the back closely.

Cooks in 3 minutes.  Wow.  That sounds fast.  But wait a minute….isn’t that how long it takes with regular Ramen?  I looked at the package I was buying…

YES!!!  It takes 3 minutes also!  The only thing that I can think of is the fact that they are reducing the amount of time it takes to bring the water to a boil but still…just basing it on their statements they should have said reduces the TOTAL time it takes to cook.  Because both take 3 minutes.

And since you are still using the seasoning packet, how is the sodium level reduced?

I’m confused.  And those are my thoughts for today…..what do y’all think?

Stay awesome y’all!!  ~lisa

My 365 Photo A Day Project – Day 182 – Oh say can you see….

Today is the 4th of July and as always, I’m proud to be an American, I’m proud of the military heritage in my family and I’m proud of my husband who has a heart to serve his community!

I tried to get some creative shots today but the wind wasn’t blowing so the flags were just kind of there. 

But my hubby did put the flags out as he knows how much I enjoy how they look and he does as well.

How did you celebrate today?

Stay awesome y’all!! ~lisa

My 365 Photo A Day Project – Day 181 – You don’t plan to fail but sometimes fail to plan…

And because of that quote I have become a bit obsessed with finding a new planner/organizer.  I’ve checked out the Erin Condren planner, I looked at the section in Hobby Lobby for customizable planners, Lily Pulitzer, It’s Just Emmy, and a dozen others that I found online. 

After researching and shopping online and in several stores, I came to the conclusion that I really need an organizer that I can just interchange a new calendar each year and one that I can add and take away from as my needs change. 

And as I often do when trying to make a decision, I take pics of what I see that I like as well as the price so I can find it later.

When you are searching for something, how do you research and shop?

My 365 Photo A Day Project – Day 179 – Yummy for my tummy….

I love food and I love sweets.  Once a month I attend a business luncheon for Realtors and they have a wonderful dessert table filled with miniature desserts.

What delicious things have you eaten lately?

Stay awesome y’all! ~lisa
