Tofu Shirataki Noodles

Everyone in my family enjoyed these healthy, unique Tofu Shirataki Noodles.  
It is a pasta alternative that has a little bit of a chewy texture and is made with tofu and a blend of soybean and yam flour.  Unlike pasta, it's gluten-free, low in calories and low in carbs.  These noodles are also cholesterol-free, sugar-free, dairy-free, vegan and kosher certified. It is offered in a variety of shapes including, macaroni, spaghetti, fettuccine and angel-hair.
I served this filling Tofu Shirataki spaghetti Noodles with pasta sauce, feta cheese and Italian seasoning.  I also served it with soup, which tasted fabulous.  I like the ease of preparing it.  We have to rinse the pasta thoroughly, drain then boil it for about 2 to 3 minutes and drain again before serving.  Since the pasta is perishable keep it in the fridge.  The product is made in USA and is available in all these stores in Canada, USA and online.

Learn & master photography plus shrimp noodles

I have the pleasure of introducing this wonderful new product
learn and master photography. Photography captures memories of our lives and is certainly one important component of blogging as we all know. I believe pictures teach us to appreciate life and nature.

A quote from the book "The question is not what you look at but what you see" P. 5

The chapters in the book supplement the entertaining sessions in the DVDs that clearly explains every detail we need to know to master this skill. It is a wonderful tool not only for beginners but also for advanced users to refresh their memory and refer to.
There are simple assignments with tips throughout which are encouraging for self learners. Colourful pictures throughout the book make it interesting and teaches very visually.

The DVD sessions are broken up into detailed parts that show everything clearly as though you are right there and all the questions are answered well. On the DVDs in addition to having explanations inside the studio the instructor has sessions on location where he goes out to places to capture images at different types of locations. He explains how to take various types of images in all types of settings. The pictures he has taken are available in RAW files that come on 2 CDs to study and see for ourselves.
There is also an online community with forums to ask questions from the instructor to clear up any other questions we may have. It will help us take all types of photographs in all types of conditions.

Learn and master photography teaches every detail from the history of photography, the basics such as tool you need, cleaning and holding the camera properly. It also teaches hard to understand concepts in clear explanations such as f stops, shutter speed, depth of field, focal length, aperture, ISO, using all types of light, white balance and lots more; using language and images that make it easy to understand.

Mastering photography is a learning process and you don't need an expensive camera for this. This product is in my opinion the only tool you need to learn this universal language.
An image speaks a thousand words so lets learn it today.
Legacy learning has offered $130 off this product for $119 from May 9 to 16 as a special offer and after this date the prices will be $249.

Maggie noodles

2 to 3 packets maggie noodles
1 soup cube
4 tbsp oil
1 tbsp onion
1/2 tsp garlic
1/4 cup carrots
1/4 cup leeks
1/4 cup cabbage
1/4 cup bell pepper
2 eggs
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 cup parsley

I use the maggie noodles and throw out the spice packet. Boil the noodles 2 minutes with chicken cubes for flavour and strain, do not over cook, it will become mushy. Chicken cubes have salt, lessen the amount of salt put for the vegetables. Cut the vegetables thinly and sauté in oil with salt and pepper. When the vegetables are cooked add the beaten eggs in the middle and cook. Stir in the noodles and toss with parsley.
