Nissin Noodles. I don't eat ramen because I have to. I eat it because I have a craving, and when I crave ramen noodles, I want the OG.
It's a bit of a comfort food to me. When I first spent an extended time in Hong Kong, it's the only food that felt familiar to my ten year old mind.
When I do make them, I boil water and toss in the brick. I constantly try to loosen the noodles, and once they start to loosen, I take them off the stove. The noodles are then rinsed until the water runs clear and then are put in a bowl.
Water is added back to the pot. Then the seasoning, then the sesame oil. I cut some fresh chives up. If I have leftover meat from somewhere, it goes in the pot. Depending on what vegetables I have, I may toss in a leafy green, or perhaps corn, or mushrooms, or a combination. I may drop an egg in there. Then the noodles go back in and the little bits that broke off the brick get dumped in as well.
It's probably one of my favorite ways of consuming a pork or beef roast. Especially the later; I cook my beef roasts to rare and reheating them makes it... not so good. Sliced paper thin, the cuts of beef roast get placed on top of the noodles right before serving.
So many good ideas for my future noodling.
Not even that, though. It's more like the leap between generations. I can see a clear difference between a good looking Wii game and a good looking 360 game; I can't see much of a difference between a good looking 360 game and a good looking XBOne game.
It will take a couple of years before they get the most out of the system. I hope that the games will look way better a few years down the line. The difference between ps3 launch games and the games at the end of the cycle is pretty immense. It's a learning curve for everyone.
I avoid too much salt. I do two packages of noodles with about 2/3 of one package of powder right in the boiling water from the start with some curry powder. I like to over cook it til it's gooey, then drain, then add some curry chicken with onions and carrots that I prepare before in for a bit of stir fry. Add some stir fry sauce, more curry powder, cook for a bit. Then eat.
Still wrapped in the package, on the shelf in the store. I like real food.
Turns out noodles are food. Surprising, I know.
I suppose it is, if you like your food full of preservatives and artificial shit in it.
Unless you are eating vegetables you have grown yourself and meat you have butchered yourself, guess what? All your food has preservatives in it. They even irradiate most food nowadays so it lasts longer, that includes store bought vegetables. If you live in America, there's a good chance you have eaten genetically modified vegetables and hormone grown meat without even knowing it as the grocery lobby has successfully lobbied to disallow intelligent labeling of food. Some bakeries even add small amounts of bleach to their flour to whiten the bread. Ramen isn't the worst shit out there. It's not exactly good for you, but it's not terrible either. Everything in moderation.
That said, last night I ate an entire carton of Jaffa Cakes.
This game should really have been delayed if these frame rate drops are consistent. 16 fps? That's terrible. It would be better if they took another 6 months to optimize it. Sucks for the pre-orders etc, but Jesus....
I dont know why but I have a habit of getting games on 360 then realizing I need them on PC, usually for mouse and keyboard or mods. I have the following on both:
- The orange box
- Fallout 3
- Morrowind (purchased around 4 times over the years)
- CoD: Black ops
- Minecraft (idk)
- Plants vs zombies
- Worms 2 and Worms renegade? (the latest 1)
- Battlefield 3
I think thats it, not too bad really.
Dude, I have bought Morrowind so many god damn times. I had it two or three times on the XBOX, as people would move out of the apartment and take the copy with them. I must have bought it on PC at least four or five times, between losing it when moving, GOTY editions, deciding one day "Fuck it I want to play morrowind again" and not being able to find the discs to re-install. Then a final purchase on Steam so none of that ever happens again.
