    “Instant noodles were invented by Momofuku Ando (born Go Pek-Hok) of Nissin Foods in Japan.[1] They were launched in 1958 under the brand name Chikin Ramen. In 1971, Nissin introduced Cup Noodles, the first cup noodle product. Instant noodles are marketed worldwide under many brand names.

    Ramen, a Japanese noodle soup, is sometimes used as a descriptor for instant noodle flavors by some Japanese instant noodle manufacturers. It has become synonymous in America for all instant noodle products.[2]”

    If you've never had actual ramen from a Japanese restaurant, put that at the top of your food-related to do list. Actually go right now. I don’t care if you’re at work, just go.

    Checking for WABS is mostly necessary with the cheap North American packets (as far as I know). If you get Asian versions of instant ramen there are a LOT of great ones with tons of flavor, sauces, dehydrated vegetables. Also the ones served in cup seems to be more deluxe.

    Recipe #1: Broth of choice, Scallions and eggs. I tend to cook my egg most of the way through but you do you, boo.

    Recipe #2: Veggie or chicken broth, Scallions, peanut butter, chopped broccoli. This is my favorite. A simpler version of my spicy peanut butter soup video.

    Recipe #3: No broth, Bacon, butter, parmesan. For when you're feeling filthy and want to compound it.

    Recipe #4: Veggie or chicken broth, Indian curry paste and chic peas. There are a lot of veggies that would work well in this. There are also a ton of Indian curry pastes but I haven't met one I didn't like.

    Recipe #5 Beef broth, spinach, sliced steak. Slice the steak as thinly as possible. I was looking for flank steak, ended up using top sirloin, you could also use hanger steak or skirt steak...there is a lot of opinions on steak cuts but I'm already out of my comfort zone. Just in life in general.

    If you've read this far, congratulations, I'm giving away a prize to the few that get this far. The prize is the gift of reading my random ramblings for the next couple of minutes.

    Do you ever find yourself sitting around, living life, then suddenly you’re all WTF? I mean W IN T ACTUAL F. In an existential kind of way. Honestly the weight of actually existing, even when things are going great, is sometimes just super overwhelming. I'm not sure it's really fathomable. I mean if we think about the beginning of the universe and try to imagine the nothing that it came from, it's gotta be a trick. Like there can't have ever been nothing. But if there can't have ever been nothing then…this is the point at which I've actually gone mad. Help. My brain is trying to stretch in a way it wasn't built for. My brain isn't Simone Biles, you know? And you shouldn't expect it to be. It has limits. But is that just the ceiling of my own confidence? The real problem here is that I said you won a prize, and usually prizes are supposed to be something good where you feel, "yeah, I totally just won a prize, man, I love prizes.” But just look at this. I'm not even sorry. It's possible I was up late last night.

                    If three days ago someone told me I would be on my third day of binge watching some mental patient's youtube cooking show, I would have told that person to that I don't have friends and it seems likely.

                      You know what's better than Hello Fresh? Freshly, which doesn't even require cooking. Instead of simply delivering pre-measured amounts of ingredients for the recipient to cook, the meals are precooked and can simply be heated in the microwave in 3 minutes. So, if you want to pay $12.50 per meal, hit up Freshly... otherwise, get your ass to the grocery store like a normal adult.

                                                    ok here is my ramen "recipe"
                                                    this is to make the broth more tasty
                                                    2x curry flavour noodles
                                                    2x pinch of salt
                                                    ??? random shakes of paprika, chilli powder (MILD NOT ACCEPTABLE MUST BE HOT) and curry powder
                                                    as for protein
                                                    Bacon bits make sure to add the bacon fat because if your living on ramen then you probably dont care about your health like i dont so fuckit
                                                    boil down until the broth is thick and kinda creamy and eat out of the saucepan you used to boil the noodles in while questioning why you listened to some randy with a weird name in the comments (none of this is a joke i did this today)
