Ways to Make Ramen Noodles

much needed nutrition) to your ramen dish.

3. Stir Fry:

This is similar to broiling the ramen, except you flash fry the noodles in a hot skillet (or a wok, if you’ve got it) with sizzling oil. Consider adding some spices to the hot oil, for even more flavor!


1. Egg Drop Soup(ish)

Probably the easiest, most basic, & cheapest way to doctor up and flesh out your ramen is by simply adding eggs. Eggs can be cracked into the boiling water to poach them, just a few minutes before finished. Top with parmesian cheese.

2. Eat Your Vegetables

For the non-carnivorous, or people who just want to have a balanced diet, add some vegetables to your ramen! Add tougher vegetables, like carrots, broccoli, or mixed vegetables to the broth 2–3 minutes before the noodles are done, & softer, more delicate veggies like baby spinach or thinly sliced cabbage a few seconds before serving, to give a bit of crunch (and some

to be a kind roommate when moving out

Sometimes things don’t work out when you live with others, and you may decide that moving out is the right thing to do. One thing to make sure of is that your move doesn’t cause any more trouble for your roommates. 1. Determine what needs to be done to prepare for the next tenant Does your room need to be cleaned? Repainted?


Repairs made? You might want to talk with your roommates and landlord about what needs to be done in your room prior to the next tenant moving in, and when these actions need to take place. While you usually have the room until the last day of your rental lease, it may be nice for you to give the others an extra day or two to make any repairs or changes in your room, especially if the new tenant needs to be in the very first day of the new lease. 2. Clean out your food in the fridge and pantry. Your roommates most likely don’t want to find your leftover moldy stir-fry three weeks after you moved out. Make sure you throw out any perishable food that you purchased, and if you don’t want to waste anything that is still edible, ask if your roommates want it or donate it (a great option for canned food)! 3. Return any keys, garage openers, mailbox keys and gate sensors.This one is selfexplanatory, but remember to return anything that was given to you to use for your apartment. Believe me, there isn’t anything more annoying than tracking down your roommate across town for that extra garage door opener!

Moving Thoughts moving


Calories Packing up and moving an apartment is a time consuming process. People often feel pressured to put their other hobbies and interests on hold in order to dedicate more time to the move. However, cutting out a few trips to the gym shouldn’t hurt because the good news is that the activities associated with relocation burn a significant number of calories. America is in moving season – most of the 43 million Americans who will relocate this year will do so between May and September. Consider the calories they will be burning. According to:, a 140 pound person burns per hour: 222 calories packing and unpacking boxes. 381 calories moving furniture. 191 calories moving household items. 572 calories moving boxes and furniture up stairs. So, just how many hours does it take to move? That depends

on whether you do it yourself or hire a professional. For context, it takes about 46 - 50 boxes to pack and move a 1,000-sf apt.

It takes an experienced, professional packer about one hour to pack eight to 10 boxes, so the average person could probably pack five to seven boxes per hour. That’s at least 10 hours of packing for a 1,000-square-foot home, for a total calorie expenditure of 2,220! If you’re moving the boxes and furniture yourself, you can expect to burn even more calories.

don’t fall victim to

Don’t Offer a Deposit Legitimate movers should never ask for a deposit before moving your items. Check Their Physical Address Check moving companies’ websites and the phone book to ensure they have a physical address in your area. Having a residential address, no address, or just listing a P.O. Box could be an indicator the business is not legitimate.

moving scams

Verify an Active License Look for a U.S. DOT number on the companies’ website. All moving companies should have active operating authority and adequate insurance.

Most often, rogue operations offer low initial estimates, then hold a victim’s possessions hostage until they receive additional payments. You can avoid falling victim to scams by looking for the following red flags:

Check Service Records Check a company’s reputation and qualifications with organizations like American Moving and Storage Association (AMSA) and the Better Business Bureau (BBB).

Did you know that approximately 3,000 Americans are affected by moving fraud every year?

Renters Lifestyle

55+ Living.

How do you know when it’s time to consider senior living? Independent living is a general name for any housing arrangement designed exclusively for seniors. Other terms include retirement communities, retirement homes, senior housing, and senior apartments. These may be apartment complexes, condominiums, or even free-standing homes. In general, the housing is friendlier to older adults—it’s more compact, easier to navigate, and includes help with outside maintenance. Often, recreational centers or clubhouses are also available on site.

You may want to consider independent living if:

• Performing daily activities is difficult without help from others. • You’d like a place that does not require a lot of maintenance and upkeep • Maybe you are no longer able to drive because of loss of vision. • Shopping for yourself is hard because you get fatigued. • Cleaning your home is a task you’re no longer physically able to do. • You could be living alone and desire the company of others. Many seniors have no trouble taking care of themselves; they just want to live with their peers in an independent community that is senior-focused. The following communities are viable choices for this time in your life. v 48

Better Living Good Things To Consider


V i l l a g e Farmers Market

food truck



Located in the heart of historic Elmwood Village, the Elmwood Village Farmers Market is considered by many to be the best market of its type in WNY. In fact, several local publications have honored the market for its fresh produce and family friendly atmosphere. A producer only market, meaning that all their vendors grow or produce what they sell themselves; absolutely no reselling is allowed. In this way, patrons know they’re dealing directly with source — no middlemen, no compromises. They also know they’re helping create a healthy local economy. Open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays, May - November, at the corner of Elmwood Ave & Bidwell Parkway

Food Truck Tuesdays at Larkinville started April 11th and runs through into October. Admission and parking are free thanks to the generous support of presenting sponsor KeyBank and sponsor Independent Health. Every Tuesday, from 5pm - 8pm, Larkin Square welcomes dozens of food trucks and a diverse lineup of live, local music. Beverages will be sold onsite, with colorful seating and hula hoops spread around the square; guests are also welcome to bring their own seating. Each truck will offer at least one item certified as a Healthy Option by the Independent Health Foundation. The 2017 season welcomes a roster of more than 50 food trucks, 15


of which are new to the street since last season. Each week, Larkin Square will host up to 28 food trucks with additional trucks parked at Flying Bison Brewery (840 Seneca Street) in Larkinville. To round out the neighborhoodwide “dinner party,” the Hydraulic Hearth Restaurant & Brewery (716 Swan Street) will welcome diners to bring food purchased from the trucks into their beer garden, as will BFLO Distilling Co. (860 Seneca Street) in their tasting room. With trucks driving from as far as Rochester, the wide variety of food and range covered by the fleet of trucks have helped the event become one of the largest and longest-running food truck events in the country.

Runs thru October 3rd, 2017 5 - 8pm on Tuesdays at Larkin Square, 745 Seneca Street.
