Ramen Recipes: Other Delicious Ways To Use The Packaged Noodles (PHOTOS)

“Mmm...some of these look so good! I have to try it as a kim chee sandwich. :)

Ramen (Sapporo Ichiban, Original flavor; for camping it's about Cup O'Noodles) is a total comfort food for me. I've eaten it before like spaghetti noodles and as crunchy salad topping. Of course, my favorite is as a soup with tofu.

Great...now I've got ramen cravings.

The sodium in these are killers, though. It was hard for me to do it, but I've gotten to the point where I'll use only a third of the soup base, if at all. It also helps that I don't eat it 3 times a day like I used to during the lean budget years. :)”

“I've never been a fan of movie/TV Robin(s). (The closest being the Robin from the Batman animated series. As for comics, I do like the Robin from Miller's the Dark Knight Returns.) That said, I'd be interested in seeing Gordon-Levitt as Robin in a Nolan-directed movie. Not only do I trust Nolan's sensibilities, but Gordon-Levitt rocks as an actor. So cool to see him come into his own. I still remember him as Tommy from Third Rock From the Sun. Gordon-Levitt and Lithgow being my favorites.

In any case, I would be very surprised if another Batman and/or Robin wasn't made. Too much of a cash cow for Hollywood to walk away from that. Hopefully it'll be placed in capable hands.”

“Beautiful picture.

I've heard how that, from pets, you get unconditional love. It's nice to see it from the other side, too. :)

I always count myself as fortunate for having grown up with dogs (boxers). So many fond memories. If/and/or/when I have kids of my own, you can bet I'll make sure they have a dog in their lives--and, of course, so I can have one again, too. :)”

My favorite is a nice sourdough bread. I eat the soft inside first, and safe the best, and crustiest, for last.

Yum!”

“I forgot where, but I saw this before. Still shocks me, though.

I'm curious as to who's the best/worst of the bunch? Barbie? Disney Princesses?

I'm also curious to see a side-by-side comparrison with, say, a GI Joe/real-man, and see who's more disproportionate. (Although, I think it's safe to say that the Barbie/real-woman is more disproportionate.)”

“Your statement implies that O'Hara's threatened Scaramella with termination if she didn't adhere to the new dress code. There's nothing in the article that states Scaramella was threatened with termination.

The issue at hand (based on what's presented in the article) is if Scaramella was wrongful terminated/retaliated against by the establishment. O'Hara's lifted the dress code after receiving her complaint. O'Hara's claims Scaramella's hours were reduced and she quit. Scaramella said she was fired post-complaint.

I think it will be very hard for Scaramella to prove she was wrongfully terminated--hence, she's going for the sensationalism via Alred and get money that way.”

“Tomato worms stress me out. Big. Green. Gross.

Health-wise...I do my best to eat healthy (with occasional indulgences) and I exercise daily. Nothing hardcore, just a stationary bike, mixed in with taking the stairs when I can and hiking.

Luckily, I've never had a problem with a fast-pace-of-life. To me, that equates to work, which is "just a job." What does stress me out job-wise, is a traffic-filled commute. For the most part, I'm 45 going and 1 hour coming home. Not bad.

My job is stable. For now.

My relationship with my girlfriend is great. She's a stress-reducer.

Stable job = stable finances. One of the things I'm thankful about for the bad economy is that it served as a financial wake-up call for me, so I've worked hard to get rid of my debt and credit cards, go to cash, save, and diversify. I think the best thing I can do is be prepared for...well, whatever...the world's-a-changin' so the best defence is to be prepared. And even then, who knows...

So, yeah...while tomato worms do stress me out, I think job and finances could be my stressors. I'm fortunate that they aren't right now. :)”

Cash Dying As Credit Card Payments Predicted To Grow In Volume: Report

“I prefer using cash. I do carry a credit card, but it's reserved for usage only when I have the cash to pay off what's being charged right away (or for an emergency).

I used to swipe my credit card without any regard, which is one of the main reasons I got myself into credit trouble years ago. Going to cash is part of what helped me reign in my spending problem. (That--and destroying all but one of my credit cards.) The other thing I do is carry my monthly budget on a small piece of paper in my wallet, so whether I spend with cash or credit, I keep track of every expense. It was cumbersome at first, but now it's second nature. Been debt free for almost 2 years now. :)”
