When I lived in Texas and with two flatmates, one of them Ken was very fond of ramen noodles and always kept a cupboard full of them and ate them almost every day.

It was rather a horrid sight for me to behold, so one day I took a couple of package, cooked the noodle and then rinsed them twice, one time with hot water to remove the slimy grease, then cold water to chill, drained very well, tossed them with shredded cucumber, spring onion and ham, with a improvised dressing made with diluted teriyaki sauce, sesame oil, toasted sesame seed and a dash of garlic powder. (I ignored the soup packet that came with the noodle)

Ken was so impressed with this concoction, that was the start of my cooking dinners for all 3 of us on my days off from work regularly. (I finished work at midnight so they had to settle for just having a treat when I was off )

I cook this in a 13x9 pan because the biscuits were kind of gooey in the center, with the 8x8. I also put whatever veggies I want in it....but the original is great. From DWLZ.com

I like cooking top raman to al dante style, then draining the water than adding the seasoning. It makes a very tasty pasta. I got the shrimp flavored kind onces and added real shrimp.

I must have edited this 20 times. It just wasn't copying and pasting correctly.

It's the MONK in me.

Another one I use: if my homemade soup/stew isn't thick enough, I add a bit of instant mashed potatoes as a thickener. Works like a charm!
cjs: I love monkey bread! I do the same thing, only make it sweet with cinnamon, butter and brown sugar. I'll have to try yours - sounds great!

Did anyone here NOT grow up enjoying "Pigs in a Blanket" made with tiny appetizer-size franks wrapped in Pillsbury Crescent rolls? :)

Breezy, I still make those! My kids & hubby love them.

Something else I just thought of, I take canned biscuits, cut a hole in the center & deep fry them, coat then with powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar for quick donuts.
