Instant Pot Cranberry Juice

Decorate the refreshment tray during your next family gathering with this deliciously refreshing cranberry juice. The red-color will stimulate the optical receptors as the pleasing scent makes everyones mouth water with anticipation. Garnish with a lemon or orange slice to enhance the drink’s presentation to a sophisticated looking beverage. The kids will not hesitate to drain the glass once they get their first taste as the juice is laced with natural sweetness. This recipe uses the perfect balance of honey (buy local if you can find it) and fresh squeezed lemon juice. I had to make this recipe twice as my family drank it all shortly after the first batch was made. The second batch didn’t last much longer but, I ran out of cranberries so that ended the cycle. 

Once the kids have had there serving you may find it rewarding and interesting to include a jigger of your favorite libation in your cup when no-one is looking.  If you like the occasional cosmopolitan you will appreciate the flavor profile this juice serves as a fresh made mixer for a fabulous cranberry cocktail.

          King Oyster Mushroom Ramen Noodles

          Delicious Ramen noodles area a simple and an affordable quick easy meal that can satisfy your appetite without impacting your budget. Over the years for various reasons my family and I have had these types of noodles as a staple in our food rotation. It is affordable to buy these in bulk and have them available for a quick meal that can be made with just about anything you have in the refrigerator. This recipe was put together with some vegetables from the local Asian grocery store and prepared in about 15 minutes. The mushrooms are tender juicy and a good source of nutrition. The greens provide necessary minerals and the Japanese noodles are excellent. The sauce I use is some of my favorite flavors to balance out the dish and bring an extra level of satisfaction to the experience.

          If you are busy or want to have meals available for a throw together quality dinning adventure, I suggest you consider adding these noodles and similar vegetables to your shopping list. My kids are able to make these types of meals to feed themselves when we do not have the time to sit together. Teaching the kids how to feed themselves is a basic life skill and this is a tasty rewarding meal that does not require a lot of dirty dishes when trying to get the food to the table. Watch the video, follow the very simple instructions and be ready at the drop of a hat to pull together a simple tasty foodlicious dish that is succulently savory and very filling.
