The wonderful world of Ramen


As we speak,  I am eating these blessed noodles for lunch. For the third day in a row. I thought my times of Ramen were over once I was no longer a college student, but alas, tis not so.

Everyone, at one desperate moment or another, has eaten Ramen. It's my belief that Ramen is what holds the universe together. But everyone Ramens (yes, I just made that a verb) differently.

I used to babysit for a family that used Ramen as a snack. Hand your kid a package of Ramen and let 'em go to town dipping the broken up noodles in the seasoning packet.

I had no idea until college that Ramen was supposed to be a noodle soup. I have always just boiled the noodles with the contents of the [chicken flavored] seasoning packet, drained the water, and ate the noodles.

Ramen is not just for college kids [or lunch-lazy SAHMs like me] anymore, at least according to Ramenlicious. These enriched flour noodles have found a home in many traditional dishes such as


angel food cake

and snack mix.

Ramen has also been paired with many pantry staples:


Spam (everyone's favorite alternative canned meat)

Even Jello is not safe...

How do you Ramen?

Ok, I was with you on the Ramen (how do you think I survived my mission?) until I got to the Angel food cake. . . that's just wrong on so many levels! I had a companion on my mission that used to take the noodles out of the packet, cover them with ketchup, and eat it like it was a piece of toast. NASTY!

I like mine with just the cooked noodles,no broth, and lots of veggies and cheddar cheese on top. I'm pretty sure i would eat almost anything with melted cheddar cheese on top. My question is why do people feel they need to mess with jello? Especially putting ramen in it, it's not right.
