But how do I figure out which ones are the good ones? I try them all, of course! I like being adventurous with food, whether it's trying new recipes, new restaurants, or new convenience foods. For the latter, I thought it would be fun to share my adventures on this blog, so maybe I can help people who don't want to sample everything to find the ones they like. :)
I think that convenience foods probably have their best time and place when it comes to quick, warm lunches! I have had a crush on ramen noodles for quite some time, but the first time I went to an asian market and tried some imported varieties, I knew it was true love. Reviews of ramen noodles were the origin of the blog, and although I've branched out they will probably always be the most numerous review type.
Oh, and just for trivia: Despite the fact that I love to use chopsticks to eat with, I am fully European (mostly German) in descent. So if you were picturing an Asian girl, change that image to a blue-eyed blonde. ;)
And if you happen to be in the Woodinville area and notice a white girl eating her Cheetos with chopsticks to keep from getting orange stuff on her fingers, that was probably me!
*: It does sound better than "chronically unemployed person," doesn't it? I worked with computers for twelve years before being laid off, if anyone in the northeast Seattle area is looking for a tech-minded office girl with an attention for detail. ;)
