    Morning all! I'm with many of you with the ramen, mac n cheese, hamburger helper. I was a single mom of 3 and times were tuff, so we lived on this stuff for years and now I can't stand it! Hubs thinks HH is gourmet stuff and can't figure out why I won't touch it. :)

      Our dining hall had Taco Tuesdays for lunch in college. One day my roomies and I went to lunch and there were no tacos. Everyone had a WTF moment. People were pissed that there were no tacos, it was the one thing they actually made well. So many people threw b!tch fits that they never missed it again

      I am actually doing Tacos tonight :-) made the pico de gallo this morning so it would have time to soak in the yummy juices. Going to do corn salsa ala Chipotle once I get home tonight...and now I am hungry!!!

    No good, very bad, terrible horrible day so far here. Although brightened a little by the Firefly internet fervor. For what it's worth, when I have conquered the world, Firefly will be restored for all to enjoy. And enjoy it they will. Or else.

    And Kat, Ramen? You just brightened my evil day a little more. It's practically a staple of mine. I regret that I ate my last bit two days ago and have not had a chance to get back to the store for more yet. Of course, I tend to dress mine up, but at its heart, it is still a humble package of dried noodles and powdered flavoring.

    alrighty, here's my catch-up post...

    – i like ramen, but i've got to cook the noodles al dente. i'm not big on the mushy stuff. @truth – congratulations to you and your bride! these days it takes lots and lots of patience to go through the process. i remember a kid in high school that spent his hs career applying for citizenship.. they sure dont make it easy for those that wish to go the 'legal' route... @all – does a loose weimaraner count for lost animals? my dog got out of my back yard last nite by climbing a 6 foot cement retaining wall...WTH?!?! can you say Houdini?? i was so fascinated by her attempt at climbing the wall that when i caught her red handed i wanted to see how she'd do it.. she literally scratched and clawed and SCALED the frakkin wall!!! like gravity didnt exist!! then i had to go chase her down the block...

    We grew up pretty broke. My dad was a single father of 3, though my sisters were at their mom's half the time. Lived in a trailer for a while. Not the run down ghetto type living, but a trailer home nonetheless. Ramen Noodle soup with peas was a staple after church on Sundays. I can't stand Top Ramen to this day, but Cup'o'Noodles is good for some reason, especially the spicy ones.

    February 23, 2011 at 10:16 am |
    • Truth@JDizz

      I grew up the same way. Hamburger Helper was our thing along with Kraft Macaroni & Cheese. Hate that stuff to this day.

      February 23, 2011 at 10:35 am |
    • wendy

      cup o noodles are the best! so easy to make and eat while out hunting...all you need is hot water and a chunk of cheese and you've got a meal! :)

    • AleeD@Truth

      We grew up on HH & the blue box stuff, too. A couple of years ago, I was feeling nostalgic and whipped up some HH just for the halibut (wasn't Tuna Helper), and ....... ew ..... nasty. Won't do that again.

      Once Mom introduced us to her from-scratch mac & cheese, I couldn't look forward to the blue box anymore. Her's was so thick, you could've used it for wallpaper paste. And flavor? Ooo Baby yeah!

    I think I've had ramen once and it was just not my thing. I'm not sure what about it turned me off, be it the salt content or the mushiness of the noodles something about it was just no go.

    Good Morning All! Congrats Truth & best wishes! I was wondering how many languages you all speak. My HS forced 2 years minumum so I took German. Not sure why. You? Oh, and we have a new "Da Mayor". I guess $ can buy a lot of votes.

      I took two years of Spanish and two years of Latin in high school and four semesters of French in college. Right now, I can speak broken bits of each, but am going to brush up on my French in case hubby does go through with the plan to spend our 10 year anniversary in France!

    • JainaJade@Chigago Lady

      I'm the slacker in my family. I can read Latin (and with that a lil bit of the other Romance Languages) and I can kind of sort of understand Spanish (3yrs in HS) and on a good day I can follow along in German (2yrs in college). My one sister is fluent in 4 languages (English, Spanish, German, and French) and is in the process of learning Korean and has also taken courses in Russian. I lost count of how many languages my father speaks but this should be close: English, German, Italian, Spanish, Korean, Hungarian, Russian, and Farsi. He can also read Greek and Latin, and can follow along in French.

    On the subject of Ramen...never cared for the ramen packets, though I do love salty food... My dad used to eat a packet every day for lunch. He would come home, my mom would have them ready. He loved them. When my mom went back to work, my sister and I would take turns making the ramen. One time, I set the stove on fire while boiling the water for the noodles. We never figured out how, and the burner still worked after (probably food on the burner) but I wasn't allowed to cook for years after!

    Good morning all! I just had ramen noodles last week! They are very much a comfort food for me. When I was a kid, my sisters and I referred to them as "noodly noodly soup". I like to add green beans nowadays when I eat them and I can't use the whole seasoning packet. Too salty for me.

    February 23, 2011 at 9:54 am |
    • AleeD@Faith

      That was the reason I would only use half. I think the only one I used the entire flavor packet with was the spicy one.

      Alaska was a region of the North American continent that was one of the states making up the United States of America. It was the only state in America that bordered directly against the International Date Line.

      In 1893, a young Jack London told Samuel Clemens of his dream to go to Alaska and was encouraged by Clemens, who mentioned the Klondike and aurora borealis as some of Alaska's features. (TNG: "Time's Arrow, Part II")

      A 20th century-era map of the northern Pacific Ocean region was stored in the USS Enterprise library computer in 2254. The map depicted the east coast of Asia's USSR nation and Alaska on the west coast of North America. It was among the materials viewed by the Talosians when they scanned the Enterprise computer. (TOS: "The Cage")

      In 2286, a Starfleet base was located in Juneau, Alaska. It was among the cities on Earth that reported its cloud cover status when the Whale Probe attacked Earth. (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)

      Starfleet Commander William T. Riker was born in Alaska in 2335. The first part of Riker and Deanna Troi's wedding was held in Alaska in 2379. (TNG: "The Icarus Factor", "Conundrum"; Star Trek Nemesis)

Last night was the summation of over four years of effort and more money than I care to mention. YOu cannot expect would-be immigrants to adhere to a system that is so cumbersome.

      They'll only last if you keep the flavor packet away from humidity (definitely an issue in central Florida). I've had a couple where the flavor packet had a pin-holes in them and were inadvertently exposed to moisture. Those thangs get like boullion under the right conditions.

      I had a high school history teacher who had cows. At least twice a month he would have to leave class because one of his neighbors would call and say the cows had gotten loose and were blocking the highway. After he'd leave, we'd shut the classroom door and play baseball with the Pound Puppies he used to erase the chalkboard.

      Thought you guys would like that one. Got it over the weekend and I am still laughing at it. He does a whole bunch of different narrations as well, but I think this one is the funniest.

    Good morning all! I have some Hot Chocolate and Risotta Bread Toast for everyone.
    In theory the weather is going to start warming up again, but I guess only Mother Nature knows what the actual case will be.

      Permanent Resident or Citizen?

      February 23, 2011 at 8:29 am |
      • Truth@MicheleG

        Legal Permanent Resident. She can't vote, but let's face it, not many worth voting for these days anyway...:)

      Yay!!! It's a wonderful feeling isn't it? Although I do have to say I miss being able to hold the threat of deportation over hubs' head. Not that it worked particularly well anyway.

      Way to go, Truth! That's a hard process. Are you going to have American flag cake to celebrate? (That's what happened at my office a few years ago, when one of the workers had their citizenship finalized. And again a few months later with another.)

      Work has had me hostage for the past week. We're either killing dead things or its a one-legged ass kicking contest. Have I missed anything substantial, how goes it?

        Wait, you don't have a husband? Guess I should probably send back the matching pajamas I bought for your birthday then.

      • Queen of Everything@Richard

        There's a Tranvestite Truckers Association? What's their address? I need to get rid of some shoes so that I can buy a few more.

        February 23, 2011 at 8:49 am |
      • Sir Biddle@RH

        Missed Cherry Pie Day?!?!?! Damn! In belated honor I will send you Cherry Potter and Friends Vol. 1-5. Jerv should know who that is.

        February 23, 2011 at 8:57 am |
      • Jerv@SirB

        Sacriledge! How dare Cherry Potter try to align herself with Harry Potter! (Too funny!)

        February 23, 2011 at 9:06 am |
      • RichardHead@SirB

        Thank You kind Sir and I know who Cherry is> HA!

        February 23, 2011 at 9:07 am |
      • Sir Biddle@Jerv

        Sacriledge!?!?!?! I'm starting to think you may enjoy something along the lines of Brian and his Backdoor Bandits (not there is anything wrong with that)

        February 23, 2011 at 9:18 am |
      • Jerv@SirB

        Nope, not tossin' any salad in Richmond. But a Harry Potter fan none the less.

        February 23, 2011 at 9:25 am |
      • Sir Biddle@Jerv

        I guess I am just more biased towards Cherry than Harry.

        February 23, 2011 at 9:32 am |
      • Cherry Potter@Jerv

        Tossin' My Salad-Isn't there an App for that?

        February 23, 2011 at 9:42 am |
      • Jerv@Cherry Potter

        LOL! Dunno, but if you find one be sure and put it in one of your award winning films.

    Morning all- about to go get eggs and tea for breakfast.

    There's an excellent Asian Supermarket (that's what they named it) in my city. The ramen selection takes up part of the back wall... I need to try some of the different varieties. And that's not the plain noodles for make-your-own ramen.

    February 23, 2011 at 8:13 am |

    Ramen noodles - yum! I like to jazz them up by stirring in a little bottled kimchi, or some spinach or slaw mix with soy sauce, sesame oil and toasted sesame seeds, or whisk in an egg for egg drop ramen noodle soup - the possibilities are endless. And I love that perennial potluck favorite, the ramen noodle salad. I do agree that only half the seasoning packet is needed for the soup. Guess I know what I'm having for lunch today!

        No, I only comment here occasionally, but I couldn't resist the ramen noodles!

        Glad you stopped by.

        February 23, 2011 at 8:48 am |
  48. Queen of Everything

    Good morning! I've never been able to stomach the ramen seasoning packets but I do remember many a meal of ramen spaghetti in college. Boil your ramen noodles in the microwave, add your spaghetti sauce (or kethup and oregano if you were really desperate) and Voila! Ramen glad I don't have to eat that anymore.

    February 23, 2011 at 7:31 am |
    • Jerv@Kweeny and AleeD

      For me it was ramen noodles, the whole seasoning packet with corn and parmesan cheese. I still eat that today, on occasion.

      Morning everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Last time I had ramen noodles was just a couple of years ago. Things were looking pretty grim at work, so we were tightening our belts. Thank God it all worked out well. I gathered up all my fave flavors and did with them what I used to do when I was single & pinching every penny:

    Boil 'em up
    toss 'em with half the season packet
    (save the rest for something else)
    stir in some diced turkey ham & parmesan cheese

    .... and that's a meal!

    "Good mornin',
    Good mornin'!
    We've talked the whole night through,
    Good mornin'
    Good mornin' to you!"

    [From yesterday's thread]
    Jdizz, I don't remember Brent Spiner on Night Court (LOVED that show!) so I looked it up on "Bob Wheeler" didn't ring any bells. That means .... I'm going to add "Night Court" DVDs to my Christmas list.

    Thanks for the memories!
