Tax season is coming up on us, this, just like the holidays is another stressful time of year for everyone, especially when you have to worry about paying your taxes and still feed you and your family on a budget.
Let’s be real, Ramen Noodles are not everyone’s favorite cheap food, but i have found ways to dress them up because, my love Jeff and I have had to survive on them ourselves plenty of times and they get boring, so I’ve been researching different things to do with them. I know College aged people that have probably been in the same boat and looking for new ways to make them in a Dorm room. so i hope this reaches out to them and gives them inspiration to just try new ways and different things as add-ins to make them to taste better. Enjoy.
