Cereal is better dry.
I introduced my wife to dry fruit rounds...or whatever you call it, from the box.
Screw milk.

I'll help you out. smile

Ramen is short for "Ramen Noodles" which can either come in a bag (all the noodles are dried and clumped together in a block) and a season packet comes inside the bag as well.

Ramen Noodles can also come inside a cup in which you simply pour hot boiling water into which softens the noodles. Stir......and you have a warm noodle type Asian soup substance.

In the case where the bags are used, you simply dump that into a bowl and pour the hot water over the noodles and add the packet. Mix. Eat.

These bags/cups cost on the average (last time I checked which was around 2007) around .60 cents USD a piece.

They also.......make GENERIC RAMEN which really cracks Me up!

They also make GENERIC SPAM. Again.....this cracks Me up. Might as well eat cat food....

This guy really appears to enjoy the chicken flavor Ramen......

Perhaps some visuals:





And For the foodies who may want to know, Ramen shops are ALL OVER Tokyo. But not in this format.

Imagine being able to walk into a shop on virtually every other street corner and get a steaming hot bowl of thin beef slices and chives in sesame flavoured broth? That, and everyone can smoke too.

Yuuuummmmmm.

I could....but it's more fun explaining it old school style. wink

Notice the kid in the picture appears to be a college student. Backpack....

You can sustain life on those things and buy books with the savings you would have spent on fast food.

Ramen may possibly be one of the greatest inventions EVER created!

BETTER THAN PORN (to Me). Well.....uhhhhh depends on what type of porn We are talking about.

However, food? Oh man.....I love food. I think about food the way some men think about...

Let Us just say I undress food packages with My eyes and think dirty low down thoughts! witch

Gotta love the bottle design.

Believe it or not, my kitchen indeed is done with a rooster motif.

To stay on topic...pass the sauce. grin

Most Ramen over in Japan is apparently considered junk food...like how we consider potato chips junk food.

Then again, anyone who thinks those deep fried noodles with salty topping AREN'T junk food needs to get their head examined.

But they are oh so delicious!

1) I'd argue with these people about the political and social implications of these hand-outs---how hand-outs make people dependent on the Man, how they result in a decrease in self-efficacy and self-esteem, and how they convey our lack of faith in the other person's ability to be or become an autonomous adult. At least seeing people stammer, stutter, and have to re-collect their bearings would be hilarious.


Hell, I'd pay seven bucks for the privelege of watching you debate a bunch of campus hipsters into the ground, using nothing more than a good old "Bootstraps!" argument. wink

Also, this thread is making me nostalgic (and hungry). I practically LIVED on ramen during college.

What is odd.... and perhaps a bit sad?

I oft times make My own pasta noodles from scratch......I make My own beef, chicken, or vegetable stock.....

It's delicious.....but......I really.....really.....am thinking about opening a bag of that Ramen crap!

Sounds......good.

I am a BIG BIG soup fan (Soup Nazi) and noodle/pasta fan.

Sigh......

NO! I have real food to make....onto the sweet corn cake and cookies....

Well.......it only takes a few seconds to boil some water....... put on the tea kettle.... or microwave the water......hmmmm only a few seconds to pure junk bliss.....

DAMN IT YOU ALL!
