Uptown ramen noodles last night. I wasn't going to make dinner - husband away fishing at the coast, Sam at work and Erica out and about. Just as I was deciding which leftovers to use up, Erica came home because the weather was getting really bad. It was almost 9p.m. and a not so perfect time to be eating dinner but she and I were hungry. Sam is working at the marina 1 & 1/2 blocks away and had ridden his bike there. All of a sudden all hell broke loose with the weather. Lighting and thunder scary big. I drove over and picked Sam up to "save him from the lightning". We all sat down together for a bad weather, quickly prepared and quite tasty dinner.
First hardboil some eggs and peel them. Chop up whatever veg and leftover cooked meat you have. We had grilled pork chops, sauteed snap peas, & green onions from the night before. Cook the ramen with the spice packet that comes with it - put the meat and veg in before it starts to boil. Add the eggs and dig in. If you want spice, add Chinese chili sauce. Perfect by itself but we had a fresh French baguette and each had a slice of that. Served with an excellent vintage (box o'wine, 2010).
