Kickin It Old School

I’ve been snowed in for 2 days now (no ramen to speak of), but at least the beer supply is holding out. Anyway, I went to the Internet Archive and took a look back into history to see what this used to look like. Unfortunately some of the images for the sites didn't make it. And although the archive doesn't date back this long, this website existed BEFORE the tag.

1997 - Still hosted by my school (UMR)

1999 - Looks about the same, but hosted here...

2001 - Switched to white, added some features

2004 - Joined the modern world with MovableType

2004 - Became annoyed that MovableType wasn't free and switched to Word Press

Barbeque Cheeseburger Ramen

This one is so quick and easy and sounds pretty tasty, so I am posting it!

  • 1 package of Beef Ramen
  • Ground beef (about half the size of the Noodles)
  • 4 Tbsp. Barbecue sauce
  • Grated Parmesan cheese

Prepare ramen as you usually would, but drain most of the water out, leaving just enough to stir in with the seasoning packet. Brown ground beef in a separate pan, drain the pan of grease, saving some for the ramen. Toss the browned ground beef into the ramen (two forks helps with this). Mix in the Barbecue sauce and Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!

Pseudo-Tokyo Style Soup

As I await the arrival of the 2006 Storm of Doom, I thought I would post this warming winter recipe.

  • 1 package ramen (any flavor. Do NOT use the seasoning packet)
  • 1 or 2 Pre-cooked slices of pork
  • 2 and 1/2 cups water
  • 6 chopped baby carrots
  • Slivered white/yellow onion (or chopped green onion if you prefer)
  • Ginger powder or fresh grated ginger (as much as you want)
  • Minced garlic (as much as you want)
  • A few dashes soy sauce (not low-sodium, preferably)
  • A spoonful of chicken base

Put everything but the noodles into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Turn the heat down a little bit (not past medium heat, though) and boil it for approximately 10 minutes, depending on how soft and cooked you like your carrots. After the 10 minutes are up, remove the pork slices and add your noodles, bringing to a boil again. Boil for 3 more minutes. Pour into your favorite bowl, top with the pork and enjoy!

What Flavors of Ramen Would You Like to See?

An email from a reader today prompted this poll, what flavors would you like to see? Specifically, flavors available from the “grocery store” brands, I know some of these may be available online or from import brands...


Ramen and Lentil Soup

I like lentils, but I always screw them up when I cook them at home. I usually start with dried lentils and have to cook them for like 37 hours...

  • 1 (or two) packets Ramen Noodles
  • 1 can (large or small) pre-cooked lentils

Cook your ramen Noodles 'soup style' (do not drain). Open a can of lentils, and when ramen noodles are at the desired tenderness, add lentils. Using the flavor packet is optional, but probably makes it taste better. Eat!

This tastes interesting and provides a quick and cheap way to make your noodles into a healthier meal. Lentils are super healthy in loads of ways. I'm not sure it's an actual improvement as far as taste goes... people usually think I'm wierd when I make this. It does add health value and volume though.
