Ramen Noodles
« on: December 10, 2017, 03:18:27 AM »
I bought a case of ramen in 2014. I used to take them to work with me but a lay off happened and I fully retired. Anyway I still have them, looked at them the other day and saw the best by date. 2018 hmm, pretty good shelf life. If you have Kimchi or vegetables to add they are great. I'm having a bowl for breakfast now. Noodles, whatever flavor you like or leave the flavor packet out, kimchi, soy sauce and sesame oil. Take you time and eat it with chopsticks.

  I use a good number of those also,even though they don't come in possum,squirrel,of alligator flavors. I will often soften them and add some cheese or after softened I may brown them a bit (the first time was an accident) and had a kind of hash brown thing...My dog gets to eat some too.

I have friends who break up a pack of raw ramen and use it in salads.

I can't stomach the stuff. I dated a Japanese major in college and we hit every Asian restaurant in town. There's a place near the U of MN campus called Hong Kong Noodle that will make cheap noodles a thing of the past.

I worked with a bunch of Koreans and learned to eat almost anything with noodles and kimchi.

Cheap fixin's. I used to pay $1 for 7 pkg. now it's getting expensive $1 for 5 pkg. I always bought by the case of 24. I need to start making kimchi again, that stuff isn't cheap. I had to pay $11 for a half gallon a couple weeks ago.

I make a green kimchi from a book I have. It's very similar to this but doesn't use the red pepper flakes (gochugaru). The kimchi I buy is similar also. BTW when I buy it I put a small plastic tub in the floor of the car. The kimchi often starts fermenting again and overflowing the jar even with the lid tight.

Chemsoldier the recipe I use is in this book by Charmaine Solomon. I'm almost positive it is still under copyright so I'll refrain from posting the recipe or even a link I found to it.
