In Memory....

On Jan 5th, Japenese entrepeneur turned folk hero, Momofuku Ando, creator of instant ramen noodles, and founder of the Nissin Food Products, passed away. He was 96. Why do I mention this? Back when I was first on my own, young, foolish and struggling to make ends meet, I had many, many meals of Ramen Noodles. I actually grew quite fond of them, and have a "never forget your roots" attitude......I still keep them in my cupboard! While their nutritonal value is minimal, they are cheap (about 13 cents a brick), easy and taste good! I turned my teenage niece on to them last year, and her parents now purchase them at Sam's Club by the case!
