Nissin Souper Meal Picante Shrimp Flavor
Required to Prepare: Water, Microwave
580 calories per package
I've decided it is high time I have some noodles for lunch again! So, even though the doctors are all having Jimmy Johns for lunch, instead of getting that for myself, I brought some ramen to work. I got these Souper Meals on sale at Safeway the other day for buy-1-get-1-free, so today's lunch will be an enormous bowl of Picante Shrimp noodles! With "Improved Flavor and Premium Straight Noodles," I don't see how we can go wrong.
There are two packets to open inside, one with dried goodies (including some tiny shrimp), and the other with a spicy-smelling soup base. We add water to the inside line, then microwave for around 4-1/2 minutes. We are supposed to let it stand for 2 minutes before serving; mine ended up standing a bit longer than that as work interfered for a while, and the delicious aroma of noodles permeated a good portion of the office, taunting me, until I was able to get away again and enjoy my lunch.
Oh, ramen, how I've missed you. If grocery-store ramen hits the spot like this, I really need to get to an Asian market soon.
