mmm, I love those too, if you mean Noodle Bowl, not Ramen? (the one that actually comes in a plastic bowl, just add boiling water). However, the amount of MSG in these is probably enough for organ failure.

anitram, do you know of any recipes for those things that also involve cheese? My roommates were into different ethnic foods and were always making bean dishes or things with steamed rice (real rice, not the instant kind), but it never included any cheese.

To be honest, I don't but I also have lactose problems and am generally careful about cheese consumption.

I think quinoa would be kind of disgusting with cheese only because of its consistency. I usually make it one of two ways. Either I take some onions, garlic, celery, carrots and sautee them, then add quinoa and cook it in broth (chicken or beef), or I cut up some buttercup squash into very small cubes and sautee just a bit, then cook that with quinoa, just using water. The second one gives you a sweet-tasting meal, not everyone likes that.

Mmm, onions, garlic, and celery sound like a delish combo. I will have to look into this "quinoa" (I honestly have no clue what it is).

To be honest (this is turning into culinary confessions, lol), I don't know a great deal about noodles and very rarely eat them. I had those bowl noodles for the first time in about 6 years yesterday. I've got coeliac disease, so can't eat most of them but sometimes I give up caring for a bit. I don't really know what ramen noodles are. The only ones I eat and that is perhaps a few times a year is rice vermicelli, which is (I suppose?) like angel hair pasta. I put that in stir fries to give it more... I don't know, as it's not exactly 'filling', lol. If you go to a big supermarket and prowl around the asian and health food sections, you'll find a lot, and I mean truckloads, of cheap and healthy foods. Most of it seems to be gluten free so it's where I buy most groceries from.

PS, the bowl noodles I get (once every 5 or so years) don't contain MSG. I dont know what they contain instead, and dont want to know as I eat them so infrequently.

But really, if you want to change to more healthy but cheap eating, there are a lot of options. There's so much out there, it's great.

For me, it's not even so much the cost, but the time involved. I tend to do better trying to eat healthy if I go to the school cafe for lunch and pay for a salad bowl each day (you pay for the size bowl and fill it with anything in the salad bar), rather than buy salad stuff and pre-make lunches and dinners. For example, I hate spinach and will never buy it, but if I go to the salad bar I will force myself to put some leaves in my salad. Also, I really cannot stand cutting and dicing vegetables, it's a chore I've always hated. I'd rather be cleaning a toilet. And the salad bar at school/work always seems to have the fixins I can't find at the grocery store.

I miss living with my college housemates. I used to just pay them to get in on their meals.

I'll admit, it is pretty frightening. Notice how we Canadians refer to it as Kraft Dinner...not a snack, but a complete meal! I actually read somewhere that we eat more macaroni and cheese per person than anyone else in the world. Maybe it's been a kind of comfort food in the midst of so much bad weather. It's certainly one of the fastest foods to prepare after torturous snow shovelling, and full of instant carbs to refuel for the next storm. And, if you're glowing orange from the cheese, you're pretty easy to spot on the road!

I think I'm reaching here...I love my country, and I'll defend it 'til the very last nutritionally vacuous noodle

That's okay, when Liesje was describing 'Mac N' Cheese' earlier, I read it as 'Crap 'N Cheese'

I'm actually getting hungry now.

you know you canucks should be allowed the occasional plastic mac. you're very cool people. you rate up there with the kiwis.


ps, i confess that i didn't actually know what 'kraft dinner' was until terence and philip. well, i didn't know it when they said it but learned because of them.
"you're a dick"

This is hilarious!

I love Kraft Dinner, and always have. I don't eat it that often, but I do enjoy it every now and then. I used to eat it plain, but once when I was over at a friend's house as a kid, they put ketchup on top of it. It's so delicious!

I love that stuff! Esp. the white cheddar type. Plus it keeps me in touch with my inner trailer-park-resident.

I was going to have Kraft Dinner, but we have no milk. So I started making Top Ramen when I found a $10 and some change. I'm too lazy to get off the couch so I'm ordering a pizza from my computer....

(health nuts, I did consider a salad but the lettuce was somehow liquefied in the bag and my carrot sticks were brown)


God Bless America
