the art of instant noodle crafting


When making instant noodles, I like to keep it simple. The soup base is readily prepared for us. If I wanted to mess around with it, I'd be better off making my own soup base. Underneath the unhealthy notion that MSG is bad for us, I cannot give a shit. In the middle of the night when I'm hungry and busy, I will make instant noodles. If it's two nights in a row, I'll make something else. Either way, you're going to find out, because I'll be posting it here.

Especially on a rainy night. I don't see why I should spend money on food deliveries when I have instant noodles at home and I'm hungry and I can cook.
