    But what's this about adding stuff to it? It never occurred to me. The spice packet/spices in the cup along with the freeze dried veggies were always enough for me.

    Can I boil it and then toss and egg in there, or toss the egg in first?

    I am intrigued. I have tons of Ramen at home. And eggs. No scallions though. :(

    I add the egg at the end. You can beat it for an egg drop soup style or you can crack the egg and drop it straight in the soup.

    Ramen is one of those things that you can pretty much add anything to it. Have fun and satisfy mysterious cravings.

    Why put that much sodium into your body when all you need is some sort of pasta/noodle. Or i all the sodium in the packet?

    And Ramen's the best thing ever for a sore throat.

    It has to be all that salt. You're practically gargling salt water when you eat a cup of instant noodles.

    The theater near where I work sells $2 Nathan's Hot Dogs and has a full ice cream shop in it. The "artsy" side of it (mostly limited release movies, 'only in New York and LA' except we're in a Chicago suburb and we still get them suckers!) has a full bar and pool tables. Sooooo....
    I'd never leave.

    We have Alamo Drafthouse/Movie Taverns here. Food sucks, but a steady supply of brewskis can make me sit through any chick flick.

    Everyone keeps talking about Kimchi being a snack... do you guys mean like, you just take it out and eat it alone? Or like pack it in tupperware and eat it as a snack during your break at work?

    Cause... I only every really eat Kimchi with Ramen, or with some kind of meat... I find you guys really weird.

    I'll eat kimchi on its own, as it is fantastic stuff, and I always have some in the fridge to munch on. I've never actually eaten it with ramen, and the only way I've ever eaten it cooked with something is in kimchi jigae, which I am addicted to.

    Also, what the fuck did you do to that ramen? This is ramen:

    that's overkill...

    I made Beer Food. That's more like a meal.

    Beer Food > meal food
    and American "cheese" > your life.





    in all honesty tho, my original recipe for thsi concotion called for a handful of shredded mild cheddar, but I tried it once with American and was pretty much hooked.

    I just discovered Breeze In, a local bakery/deli, open 24/7, also has a soft serve ice cream machine that pours out vanilla icecream with flavoring syrup in 4 ribbons along the side. Apparently, you can mix whatever flavors you like. A large waffle cone with Butter Pecan/Rootbear icecream cured all the sads on my sunday night.

    This place also serves baked potatoes with all the fixin's with fucking shredded pork verde on top. That shit is bomb.

    I put the seasoning packet into the water before I boil it. then I add in things like worcestershire sauce and a bit of liquid smoke, and some cumin, and/or other spices to the liquid. then, if i have it, i add in froen veggies and some stir-fry sauce seasoned carne picatta beef.

    Eating raw ramen as a snack is pretty good. Open up the top of the package, pour in the seasoning, and then shake vigorously. My friend likes to make his own seasoning for ramen, but he keeps the flavor packs and sprinkles it on his pop corn.

    Yeah, raw ramen is pretty good if you're high or starving.

    By starving, I mean literally starving to death. Because that's what it would take for it to make it tasty.

    I have a very simple ramen recipe. Keep in mind I'm lazy, so I use cup-o-noodles, not brick ramen. Chicken, usually.

    Before adding water, I add a very fair amount of powdered garlic and dried minced onion. After I pour in the water and let it cook for a few minutes, I stir it while adding in some soy sauce.

    Breeze In... you.. you live in Juneau.

    I'm not really prepared to have another Juneau-ite here...

    Okay, relevant conversation: Breeze In is pretty bomb for the emergency food department. Have you tried their sandwiches? best in town, my friend. If you want something seriously bad for your health but tasty as fuck, you want to try the Michaelangelo.

    If I recall correctly, it features turkey and some sort of tomatoe concoction with pesto sauce and some sort of cheese. Also, the bread has sun-dried tomatoes baked in. It is so good, though your stomach may have a riot. It's really... creamy.

    had some of that a few years ago. My eldest daughter wanted to see what it smelled like and held it to her nose and gave the bottle a gentle squeeze...

    It's true. I first found it going out for pho every weekend; all the good Vietnamese places keep it, and pho is about x1000 better with it. When I finally decided to start making my own pho I knew I would have to have it, and there are enough Asian grocery stores around where I live that I found it easily. It's cheap, comes in huge bottles, and makes everything tasty.

    Rarely eat instant ramen anymore, but I did toss in the spice pack before boiling the water. Cooktime was always key for me. The instructions have you cook the noodles for like a minute, but I'd lightly boil mine for 10-15+ minutes. The noodles swell up to like 2-3X regular diameter and they get soft and you're left with a lot less broth.

    Dude, hit up Lemon Creek Breeze in, the deli there is amazing. Jesus Christ that deli is so full of win. They actually weighed my burrito to see if it was a record setter. It was 1 ounce off. I live in the valley, but the wife works by costco. And to keep this thread somewhat on topic, I would like to elect chicken bakes from Costco, they are the most delicious thing to ever look like a puss and sinew filled organ. Gotta be 1000 calories and some change on those babies.
