With 2011 rolling in and the economy still hovering around 10% unemployment, it’s more important than ever to economize. Dr.Dotnetsky, our kind denizen of eggheadcafe.com, passed on this great economy meal tip and I’m reproducing it here:
1 Package Maruchan Ramen Noodle Soup
1 small bunch scallions, chopped
10 Baby Spinach leaves, chopped
Dash Toasted Sesame Oil
3 dashes Sushi Rice Seasoning
Maruchan Ramen comes in a number of flavors. Each comes with a seasoning packet. They are available for sale at grocery stores nationwide for as low as 6 for $1.00. (Dood – that’s seventeen cents a piece!)
Heat up a saucepan with 2 cups water. Throw in the noodles. After the noodles start boiling, throw in the spinach leaves and the scallions.
Add the sesame oil and the Sushi Rice seasoning (it’s just flavored vinegar)
Add the seasoning packet contents.
Turn off the heat after 3 minutes, stir, and pour into a bowl.
Dr. Dotnetsy recommends that with the money you save, you can buy more – Vodka! He recommends Tito’s Handmade Corn Vodka, of course!
