An innocent mistake.

Step 0: Get the urge for a spicy snack.
Step 1: Recall a snack you had once which was basically a ramen brick with a flavour packet, but with instructions to break up the brick inside the packet, add the powder, then toss to coat the crunchy ramen bits in flavour.
Step 2: Locate packet of Shin Ramyun "Gourmet Spicy" ramen.
Step 3: Break up the ramen, dump that whole friggin' packet in there, and shake like mad.
Step 4: Start to eat this tasty, spicy snack.
Step 5: After a few pieces, realise with horror that the powder is a lot spicier when it's not made into ramen broth.
Step 6: OH HOLY CRAP I'M SCARED WHAT IF MY TONGUE BURNS FOREVER THIS IS JUST WRONG
Step 7: After much time and CFDDP, regain breath, sanity, and feeling in tongue.
Step 8: . . . continue snacking.

Makes perfect sense, yeah?

Anyhow, there'll be a delay until Batch Two gets underway. I have several great friends visiting from out of town (I just recovered from the last group!) and then it'll be back to the instant noodle for me. Meanwhile, have some preview pics.

Oh, hey, Maruchan Chow Mein. A favorite budget meal of mine(by which I mean, "daily occurrence"). I think I may have rec'd it to you before as a fairly quality meal for it's price/effort ratio. Much better if you're able to add your own meat, though I imagine that's beyond the scope of the "as-packaged" nature of this blog.

Also, as a word of warning, one noodle-fanatic to another, make sure to fill it a little bit over the line it tells you to stop putting in water at, otherwise you end up with the top of your noodles uncooked.

OOOH! Chow main by Nissin. Good stuff, might be a 5 slightly spicy and lots of good flavor, might even be worthy of using English/Canadian spelling, Flavour!

Yeeek!! No, not a good snack, not at all. Hope your taste buds recover.

And OMG, it actually got to 70 today in Seattle and the big yellow mystery ball was in the sky today. How are we going to cope??
