Review: 101 Things To Do with Ramen Noodles

When I was back in college during the 1980s, a part of my diet was Ramen Noodles. I could buy a lot of packages for a small amount of money and they were quick to prepare. The other thing about them was that they were so versatile. You could add eggs, hot dogs, a little meat, some vegetables or just about anything else you can think of.

I was browsing and ran across this book. Since I'm unemployed and have some time to work on recipes and reviews, I decided to give this book a whirl. Needless to say, I found a couple of recipes quite wonderful and it gave me some ideas for other ones as well. One of my favorites is the egg drop soup recipe. A very simple dish and quite good. I spice it up with a bit with some hot chili sauce. My favorite chili sauce is Sriracha. I love this sauce. It is spicy and has a great garlic taste.

With the problems in the economy and having to stretch the food dollars just a little more, you should consider this book for some ideas during the week. I enjoy eating Ramen Noodles during lunch. The dishes are not only quick and easy to prepare, but also you get a nice hot meal out of it.
