Spicy Sausage Ramen Toss

This recipe sounds awesome. For anyone who likes chorizo, it might be good in this dish. Personally, I don’t like chorizo, but I know lots of people who do. Also did you know that the dictionary in Firefox doesn’t think that chorizo is a word? It is recommending chorister, now there’s a word you use everday!

  • 2 packages of Ramen Chicken (or Chili) Flavor
  • 1/4 cup (half medium onion) of onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup of green peppers, sliced or diced
  • 1/2 cup of green peas
  • 2-3 links (appx 1 pound) of cooked and sliced sweet (or hot) Italian sausage
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic (fresh preferable)
  • 1 can of Ro*Tel Original diced tomatoes with green chili peppers.

Cook the sausage (Grilled Wegman's Sweet Italian tastes great!), slice after cooking and set aside.
Cut and saute onion and garlic in a pan. Pour the liquid only from the Ro*Tel diced tomatoes into a pot, and add 2.5 cups of water and flavor packets. Boil the water. Place noodles in pot with onion, garlic, peas, peppers. Cook until noodles are soft. Transfer to serving bowl, add diced tomatoes and sausage - TOSS!
Voila...Just hot enough to maybe make you sweat. Substitute regular diced tomatoes for a less spicy rendition.

Did you know that the Internets existed in 1996? The did, but not quite like they do now. I recently found a CD-ROM from JapanOnline in my desk. They used some of my recipes for a CD that they made in 1996. I can’t seem to run or install it on my XP machine as it’s for “Mac or Windows 95”, I even tried compatibility mode.

Unfortunately all the text is in Japanese, but I did find this gem, my entire website from my time at UMR/MST, including some of the TJ 8 South webpage.

Old School

Did you know that the Internets used to look like this?

Not shown on the screen-cap is some “breaking news” that I had added a mirror copy of the recipe page that was black text on a white background so printers didn’t have to print the yellow on black.

If anyone can give me a link to some product info that would be great, the bar code/ISBN? number is: 4 516662 003045

Need More Ramen…

You know when it’s 7:30 pm and you realize you have no food in your house? That happened tonight and I didn't have any ramen either. I need to buy more at the store tomorrow, and I'm thinking some Picante Beef would be the best choice, any other ideas?

(I ended up eating oatmeal, Triscuits, and a peach instead...)
