First Meal in a New Home

So we have moved... And my goodness was it a ridiculous day!

The moving van never showed up at our old place, so we had to move everything in my Friend's Neon. The fact that she managed to fit everything in there seems to defy the laws of quantum physics, as things which should have never fit into a tiny little sedan seemed to alter in size to fit! It was amazing.

However, our new place is awesome, and worth the 6 hours and 15 car trips, because it's super great! (And bright! There's all sorts of light! I'm in heaven!)

So we've been eating mostly french fries and microwave dinners, as they are easy to obtain and cook without making a lot of mess, but I thought that today, we're finally moved in , and I have half unpacked the kitchen, so it was time to cook something. What to make for the first ever meal in our new place?

So I cooked something quick, easy, and delicious.

Easy Quick Teriyaki Rice

1/3 cup Teriyaki Cooking sauce
1 mushroom, diced
1/4 cup onion, diced
1 bunch spinach, chopped
1 tsp oil
1/2 cup cooked Jasmine rice

Heat the oil in a wok on med-high. Add in the onions and mushrooms, and cook until the onions are a bit transluscent and the mushrooms have released water and browned.
Add in the spinach, and cook for about 30 seconds.
Pour in the teriyaki sauce, and cook for 1-2 minutes, until the sauce is a reduced and nice and thick.
Pour the contents of your wok over your rice.
Eat and Enjoy!

As an added bonus, a little picture tour of our new place! Keep in mind barely anything is unpacked, so it looks like we live in a very messy warehouse.

Our Kitchen! It's a bit smaller, but has a much nicer layout than our last one. 

The View right when you walk into the front doorway. It's currently very very messy. Bonus Cat in the corner!

Our soon to be dining room. It's currently where we put all of the boxes. You're looking at almost everything we own right now!

Our bedroom! it's the smallest non-bathroom room in the house, as we only use it to sleep so decided to keep the bigger rooms for rooms we'll use. 

The doorway there leads to the Balcony!

My office space in the livingroom/Office. It looks out onto our balcony!
