I’m probably the last one in the world to realize there are websites out there that exist just to publish recipes for ramen noodles. Or that there are actually recipes for ramen noodles. A local TV news report brought this to my attention this evening when they aired a story about “The Official Ramen Homepage.” I think they said the recipes on this site number in the hundreds. Who knew there were that many ways to fix ramen noodles?
I’d guess everyone who has ever had to live on a very tight budget, or just save a few pennies here and there, is familiar with ramen noodles. Students are the obvious example, although I don’t recall eating them when I was a student (maybe ramen noodles didn’t even exist way back then). Personally, I love them, but my creativity has rarely extended beyond a pat of butter, a sprinkling of pepper, and maybe a dash of parmesan cheese or a handful of broccoli. Call me a purist.
Hundreds of recipes for ramen noodles? Who knew?
Note: Okay, so I was asleep when I posted this. And everyone has been too nice to mention I was misspelling “ramen.” Good thing I’m not still drawing a paycheck for my editing. Anyway, I’ve corrected myself.
