The Crazy Suburban Mom: What's in my pantry for dinner? Ramen!

What's in my pantry for dinner? Ramen!

Well, the pantry is sort of bare today but I want to make a dinner without buying anything I don't have and all I have...well, ramen. So I looked around and found few more things.... a few scallions...some sliced roast beef (not enough for a sandwich which is precisely why its left over!) and a couple of eggs.

Perfect! Sort of a 21st century version of Stone Soup.

First, I sliced the roast beef and the scallions and set that aside. Than I started cooking according to package directions - When the water was boiled I put in the noodles, the flavor packets and set the timer for 3 minutes. After the noodles had been cooking for one minute I put in 2 eggs and swirled them to make egg drops... I continued cooking.

When the timer went off I put in the beef and scallions. When they were warm it was done!


Hearty, warm and delicious! Doctoring up ramen is wonderful! And it makes a dinner out of a snack...

There are tons of ways to doctor ramen. More recipes than you ever thought of. Check out this book and others at amazon!

Ramen brands differ and I find the Sapporo Ichiban brand from Japan to be SO good. If it's not locally available you can get it from amazon.
