Are you hungry again? You just ate 20 minutes ago. For the first couple of weeks this summer, you will probably sleep until 1 pm, so lunch isn’t as important. You can’t sleep the summer away because your parents refuse to harbor lazies. Until you get a summer job, theres not much else to do but eat, sleep and Facebook. Your parents don’t get summer vacation and will come home too tired to cook so its up to you. Negotiate a grocery list with the fundamentals. Your kitchen should contain six basic food groups: milk, bread, ramen, eggs, hot dogs, and something green. This is the newly revised low budget summer vacation food pyramid. Like any other processed foods, there are long term side effects. Ramen is high in sodium and has MSG that will rob you of your short-term memory. Hot dogs are high in sodium and are made from the undesirable parts of the animal. The media keeps us informed that eggs are high in cholesterol and milk has blood, puss and urine. The diet this summer will need the wisdom and creativity of ramen experts around the world. Check out the list below. On the other hand, there is a better meal alternative. There’s a summer lunch program that you can eat for free and get out of the house.
“Thirty-seven sites around the city will offer free breakfasts, lunches or afternoon snacks as part of the Summer Food Service Program, which begins May 29.”
The program is run by the Wichita school district and paid for by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Read more here: http://bit.ly/141fcM8
The classic ramen dog
This is a common classic, the combo has been around since Ramen began and is a quick and easy way to satisfy hunger. This is a quick college dorm room favorite.
Egg drop ramen
This one is quite simple and can be made by cracking an egg and dropping it into the boiling water or you may hard-boil eggs and drop them in afterwards.
Veggie ramen delight
For the vegetarian or anyone looking for good vitamins and minerals, it is best to use vegetables that cook easily. Usually something like spinach leaves, tomatoes, corn or even frozen vegetables from the freezer.
This is a sad spinoff of a Vietnamese classic. This dish would have basil, bean sprouts beef and pepper. While it will never compare to the real thing, it is a creative way to enjoy ramen and fool your FB friends.
It is hard to imagine but if you are not opposed to tuna, this combination is perfect for you. This combination is an experimental dish from college dorm room labs.
Tom Kah ramen
Originally a Thai soup, this is another bootleg of the original. It is a good way to travel the world in the realm of ramen. It is recommended to try the original before you try to make this one.
