My first Washington Winter and it is cold, All I wanted to is something to keep me warm, and I'm craving for Noodle soup. I looked around the house, but I can not find the most essential ingredients for Noodle soup which is a noodle, and go to the supermarket is not an option for me because I hate driving in the snow. Instant Ramen is the only thing left so, whatever left in the house is good enough for a chill snowy night.
I know Instant Ramen has a bad reputation, but I practically go to college with Ramen. Without Ramen, I don't think I would make it my four year's dormitory living. On my college year, I remember I always run off money and Ramen always there for me to fill it up my empty stomach. Ramen was there in the late night studies and when I need to snacks on something or the time when I was on the run, and I need something fast and easy to make or when my wallet get dried out.
Ramen was "hot"; all my friend wanted it, they always came to my room to have some Instant Noodle Makeover, we even have a small party just to eat Ramen.
And I do believe I was not the only student who loves to eat instant noodle;
I'm not surprised if by now Instant Ramen pretty much becomes dormitory official food nationwide.
I was eating so much Ramen somehow; I came up with lots of Ramen recipes so I can get a different variety and tried to make Ramen less 'unhealthy.' I had been told that my Ramen recipes were the best in the campus, in fact, mine put restaurant Ramen to a shame. Ok, this one, I don't know if they were telling the truth or they just wanted me to feel happy, so I keep cooking for them. Anyhow, I guess for now you'll be the judge!
This soup is one of the recipes since I was in college and it never goes old. It'll make you warm on the chilled winter nights.
