some drop in recipes

drop in recipe stuff that I posted elsewhere - I have been experimenting with food a bit more this summer, and some more weirder stuff is to come as I play with some of my new ingredients:

takes a bit more time to make, but really good with the additions
Esme said it was good and we should make it again
ramen lunch : 1 large specialty pack of ramen with vegetable and boullion pack, 4 soft-boiled eggs, cooled, peeled but not yet cut open, 1 large carrot, grated into long thin strips almost like noodles, chopped green onion tops and bottoms, fine cut banana peppers, shredded kale, frozen sweet peas - simmer the vegetables in the necessary water with the boullion and veggie pack from the ramen until the carrots are tender enough, break and add the noodles, cook until done, pour into bowls and slice the soft-boiled egg immediately before layering on top on one side of the bowl

for the taco salad I mixed our own taco seasoning, paprika, onion powder, garlic, chili powder, crushed red pepper flakes, salt, pepper, cumin and a tiny bit of basil and the recipe I looked at said some cornstarch to keep the extra from clumping - I changed the quantities entirely from what they had put in the seasoning recipe, and it ended up pretty good at the end - now I just have to use it the next few times we make things! Esme says it's Taco Tuesday, so we should use some more of it tonight.  (we did, she asked for it two nights in a row!  The first night the meat got a bit more charred than we liked (but Mark likes it that way) and the second night we watched it more closely and it turned out perfect)
taco salad: shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, sliced black olives, chopped pepper jack cheese, hamburger fried with the above taco seasoning, all combined, lettuce/tomatoes/olives first, then the hamburger with grease stirred up, then the cheese, and then one final stir, and onto two plates
A brown rice flour, egg and banana bread:

2 whole eggs, 2 small overripe bananas, 1/4 cup or less? coconut milk, 3/4 cup brown rice flour, shred baking powder and salt, then added 2 tbsp melted butter, - baked in a ceramic dish at 350 degrees and brushed with more melted butter after it firmed up, baked until it turned just slightly brown on top and was quite browned at the edges - pretty good concoction, like a lighter, spongier banana bread, ate with a bit of maple syrup and peach jam
