Akira's 10 Minute Bacon and Cheese Noodles

Hi peeps!

And here we find ourselves blessed with a new week, a new week to make it count! Do something great and make yourself feel proud; spread some smiles and tell some jokes; Mondays are what you make of them, so let's spread some love!

One of the most popular posts is where Akira cooks; she asks me to thank you all for taking a peek at it and wanted to share another quick and easy recipe for you to share with your children. They will love these noodles and also be so proud that they helped mom and dad by cooking dinner; I also guarantee that mom and dad will be going back for seconds. This is Akira's 10 minute Bacon and Cheese Noodles...

1 kg bacon bits
4 packets of instant noodles, cheese flavour (we used four packets because there are four of us so its one packet per person).
A tablespoon of salted butter
1 1/2 teaspoons of crushed garlic.
1 cup cheddar cheese

1. Melt the butter in a large pot and add your garlic, give it a bit of a simmer on medium heat.
2. Add your bacon bits and fry until bacon is done.
3. Open the noodle packets and take out the flavour sachet inside; now crush the noodles and add into the bacon.
4. Boil some water in your kettle; pour all the flavourings into a 330ml cup and top up with water. Stir it with a fork. Now add it in to the bacon and add two more cups of boiling water. (Less water is needed is you use less packets of noodles)
5. Pop the lid on and let it sit for 3 minutes
6. Add in the cup of grated cheese and serve with a smile :-D
By note: the bacon bits and the seasoning are salty enough so no extra salt or pepper needs to be added.

Stormy was kind enough to help her sister by popping the noodles in the pot; its a nice way to get them to work together and feel proud of themselves while doing it. I was also lucky with the dishes- because there were so little; Stormy washed and Akira dried them and packed them away, so mom had the whole night off....I just stood and took as many photos as I could and made sure that they both adhered to the safety rules of the kitchen. I, unfortunately don't have a fancy camera and have to use my phone to take the photos of the recipes we do at home so I do apologize for the low quality.

We were also further spoiled by Akira who served dessert; we had sliced bananas and apples with honey and yohgurt. Nice way to round off an easy and tasty meal. I will be doing more of Akira and Storm's recipes in the upcoming weeks. Akira's advice for the kitchen is this:

1. Always wash your hands before cooking
2. Let mom or dad help take lids off pots because the steam can burn.
3. Let mom and dad help when chopping or slicing until you can do it safely by yourself.
4. Clean up your surfaces and throw away peels and empty packets as you go along; the cleaner you leave the kitchen, the more often mom and dad will let you cook.
5. Always have fun! Cooking and baking is loads of fun and makes you feel good. Especially when people go back for seconds!
6. Eat salad with every meal possible because salad is good for you.
And here we have another succesful kiddie meal! Thanks to Akira and Stormy for the wonderful treats. Mom and Dad love you very much. <3

Love your children deeply, peeps!
