    Last night I sliced up a strawberry and added it after I stirred up my ramen. Liked it so well I tried it again today with more strawberries.




    What fun/weird stuff do you do with your cheap food?

    Years ago I also lived on a Ramen Noodle Budget...Ramen noodles and Peanut Butter sandwiches...now I've upgraded to Garlic shells and Ham and Cheese sandwiches.

    Having been to Japan and China multiple times..Noodles are a big deal there.

    Best way to do it..is cook the ingredients separately..and put them together when done.

    I like pork noodles, made with real pork broth.

    The best I ever had probably was like 3000 year old soup, you know, the kind they just keep going all the time and add to regularly. And probably had things other than pork in it. It was almost black, and it was yummy. That was the restaurant that got fined for using road kill. I don't care, they had the best *pork* noodles I've ever had.

    I like boiled eggs and green onions in my ramen, thrown in at the end. A lot of green onion.

    umm...a pot of vegetable soup is cheap and will feed you for a week. Can be frozen for later also. 1000 times better for you than softened cardboard..err...ramen noodles.

    If I could only figure out what Pastables are, I may agree with you :eusa_angel:

    But you need your carbs! :eek:

    Vegies are not all that inexpensive these days, unless you grow your own, or swipe them from the neighbors garden. :lol:
