As much as I love cereal, ramen, and other quick meals, I get tired of them pretty quickly. I never have much time between classes, homework, and work, so I’ve been experimenting with some easy bites for breakfast, lunch, and snacks, and I thought I’d share some with you guys!
Blueberry French Toast in a Mug
Okay, this one’s great if you’re craving a sweeter breakfast, especially if you use way too much maple syrup (just like me). There’s just a few ingredients that most have in their kitchens already, and what’s nice is that you don’t have to use blueberries, you can really add any fruit or topping you usually like on french toast (like chocolate chips or strawberries)! Here’s the recipe I use.
This one’s a pretty common one, but it’s just an egg in the middle of a piece of toast. I like to make the egg over-easy so I can dip the toast cut-out in the yolk, but you can cook the egg to your liking. You can also add a slice of cheese on top to add a little extra flavor too!
This one’s so easy, and you can really mix it up however you’d like: add some veggies or protein, use a different kind of pasta, add some spices, etc. The best part? It takes no more than 5 minutes!
If you religiously eat instant ramen noodles, this is a good way to change ‘em up a little bit. Take the noodles, toss the spice packet (or save it, it’s up to you), and whip it up with a creamy sauce and some bacon. Just be careful with the heat on the stove, because if it’s too hot, it’ll scramble the egg instead of making it into a sauce.
These are a personal favorite of mine because they’re sweet, healthy, and perfectly snack-sized. To make the process super easy, get a bag of the mixed frozen fruit of your choice next time you’re at the grocery store.
I personally love blueberries, strawberries, and mango, and I usually just add a couple handfuls of the fruit mix to my blender, pour in enough milk (your choice what kind!) to cover the fruit, and then add some honey for a little extra sweetness. Blend it together and voila! Extra points if you top it with whipped cream, because who doesn’t love whipped cream.
Lunchmeat & Cheese Roll-ups
Not hungry enough for a whole sandwich! Well here’s your solution: roll-ups! Get the lunchmeat and cheese of your choice, and roll a slice of each together. It only takes a few seconds, and a couple of these make for a nice snack. My favorite combo is prosciutto and mozzarella, but mix it up with turkey, ham, salami, muenster, cheddar, swiss, etc.
Those are the recipes! I hope you like ‘em, and they make your life a little easier (and tastier). Enjoy!
When we think of the Marvel Comic hero Spider-Man, we usually think about the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) Tom Holland Spider-Man Or the Sam Rami Spider-Man starring Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man. Think before all that, before the internet or social media was invented.
Back when Stan Lee was working at Timely Comics later to be called Marvel comics, during that time in 1962 Thor and The Incredible Hulk was created. Marvel Comics became a talk and the Stan Lee and Jack Kirby (comic artist) pair were working day in and day out.
At that point Marvel Comics became a popular name in the comic industry. The Fantastic Four was becoming popular during that time. Stan’s publisher came to him and he said; “Stan I want you to come up with a new superhero.” Stan started thinking about what kind of power the hero should have, as soon as he could think of a power then everything started to come together. One day with an interview with Larry King in 2000, Stan said; “I saw a fly crawling on the wall, and I said; “Hey if I can get a superhero that could stick to walls. Man that would be groovy”. Now Stan needed a name. He suggested; “Fly-Man” and “Mosquito-Man '', but those names just didn’t sound right. But, when he cut down to “Spider-Man'', he liked how it sounded dramatic. So Stan got his power and his name, and just for fun he decided to give the character personal problems. Then Stan thought to himself he’ll make the character a teenager, during that time there were no teenage superheroes.
So now equipped with all of that material and all those tremendous ideas, Stan ran to his publishers office and told him about his new creation. His publisher replied; “ Stan that is the worst I have ever heard. First of all people hate spiders so you can’t call a hero Spider-Man''. Also, he didn’t like the idea of the character being a teenager, he said; “Teenagers can only be sidekicks!”. Stan's publisher really didn’t agree about giving the character personal problems. “Stan, don't you know what superhero is?” his publisher exclaimed. Stan was able to put the first story of Spider-Man at the end of the magazine “Amazing Fantasy”. Even though Stan's publisher didn’t like Spider-Man, the reader did. A few months later, Stan put the idea of Spider-Man aside and forgot about it, Stan’s boss saw how much money the magazine had of the Spider-Man story had made. His boss ran to Lee’s office and said “Let make him a regular feature”.
In the words of the great Stan Lee; “If you have an idea that you genuinely think is great, don’t let some idiot talk you out of it”
