Hello, hello, hello, all you rock ‘n’ rollers! Welcome to The Gazette, the online magazine of culture for adults only. Guy Hogan is my name and blogging is my game.
We had another lovely day in The ‘Burgh today, mostly sunny and a high around 70. I took advantage of the weather to stroll down to the campus of the University of Pittsburgh and to return a book to the public library that I had lost interest in (it was about Franklin D. Roosevelt) to get two books that I had more interest in (they were biographies about Jim Morrison). But before I sallied forth into the world from my apartment, I fixed myself a bowl of steaming Ramen Noodles.
The thing about Ramen Noodles is that they’re quick to prepare, but you have to add things to them if you want any real nutrition.
A few month ago I got the wild idea that I would save money if I ate Ramen Noodles every day. I got an attack of the gout.
Now I eat Ramen Noodles in moderation. If you eat Ramen Noodles and you want to add to their nutritional value (look at the label to see how little nutritional value the noodles have) you have to do like I do: add things to the noodles. I like to drop a small amount of diced carrots and green peppers along with a couple of chunks of pre-cooked meat (this morning it was the last of a small piece of left over lamb) into the boiling water along with the noodles and the contents of the packet of seasoning (this morning it was beef seasoning) that comes with the noodles.
A busy blogger has to eat!
So, not only are Ramen Noodles cheap and quick to prepare, but with the right additions they’re good for you, too (if you eat them in moderation)!
Hail to Pitt!
