No matter how many delicious groceries I stock the kitchen with- produce from Farmer’s Market, Celtic sea salt, free-range chicken-Pat insists on buying chicken ramen. To me this is really salty college student food. I argue and make great meals but whenever I am not home for dinner Pat makes ramen.
If you can’t beat them, join them. So I raided Pat’s stash of ramen, took the noodle and threw out the flavor packet.
I made stir fry of broccoli and snap peas with chicken. I added chicken stock while the ramen noodles cooked for 2 minutes in boiling water. The noodles were drained and added to the stir fry pan with a little lemon zest and fresh parsley.
Pat even agreed with me that it was a better use for the noodles.
