#ShaiTakesOn…Possible Addition to the blog!

Hello darlings!

TGIF! My week is not nearly over, I have a 3 page paper due Sunday night and I have to schedule my blog posts for the coming week! It’s raining right now, however, so that’s bringing me happiness. Am I the only one that LOVES the rain? Dreary days makes me very happy, but I am also a very bubbly happy person. Oops, going off topic here. 

I want to bring the best quality content to you, with lots of great pictures, features, and information. So I’m implementing a new addition to Laqing In Creativity. Food Journeys. It will be called “Shai Takes On {insert restaurant/food name}.” The category will be under Food, the tag will be under #ShaiTakesOn. I’m telling you this now for future references 🙂

Creole Shrimp and Bacon Ramen #RamenRecipe

There is one thing I love and that’s shrimp. If you know me, you know that shrimp is probably my favorite meat of all time. I love to mix different foods together and see how they turn out.

Last week I made shrimp and bacon ramen with a butter sauce and it was probably the best thing I ever made. I decided to make it again this week and share it with you all for a quick, easy, 20 minute or less dinner!

What to post when you don’t know what to blog about!

I’m writing this because I’m having one of those days where I have no clue what to blog about. I am a sort of, kinda, new-to-the-business blogger but I have already inspired my best friend to create a blog as well and I felt like I should show her that even though I’ve been doing this for a couple of months, I still get blocked roads and brick walls in front of me. I have a list on my Pinterest board featuring all things blogging and I wanted to share my favorite pins/blogs to get blog post ideas from!

The wonderful Paula from ThirteenThoughts.com has a blog post with 113 ideas to post about! That’s a crazy amount of GOOD information and her post is definitely one of my favorites. She lists quite a few different topics to write about as well!

Also check out Mandy from A Girl, Obsessed for 25 topics to write about if you’re a new blogger!

Recipe: Scrambled Tofu

Hi Dolls and Kens! I wanted to drop off one of my favorite recipes. I have recently gotten into tofu this year trying to be healthier and I found tofu to actually be tasty, providing it is seasoned properly. I searched for many recipes that were easy enough to learn (being brand new to tofu and it’s texture) and I found a southwest breakfast scramble with tofu instead of egg. I figured that was perfect for me. I didn’t have all of the ingredients that the recipe called for though so I came up with my own concoction.

Now I do want to stress that all of my seasoning is never measured with an actual measuring spoon. I like to go by taste and I need my tofu very well seasoned.
