I dont know what it is with kids and their bad food taste. I have been making home made food all my daughters life, so one would think she would like it more than supermarket copies.

All her friends eat the store bought stuff so she has to as well to fit in.

I don't understand the point here. You are "laboring" in boling 9 cups of water and dropping 3 packages in it. I would be disapppointed, too. Your kids got good taste....
But then I don't know what Ramen noodles are. Please explain, thanks.

And they are all being told by advertisers (who know how to manipulate kids pretty well--as well as a lot of adults) that they will be so much cooler if they eat their products.

Attended many food and wine shows, and seen many talented chefs perform culinary masterpieces before my eyes. Havnt traveled abroad much, but living in the northeast, with New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington Dc in my backyard, Ive had the opportunities to try dozens of different cuisines ( and always attempted to recreate what ive experienced , at home. So, what were my kids response??? Ramen Noodles. So I labored over the stove, got the 6 cups of water to a boil, added the 3 flavor packets, then the Noodles. A few minutes later, dinner is served.

Anyway,

Ill just assume its a teenage thing ( and not that my food taste like crap).

Just had to vent,

No wonder your kids were disappointed, I would too.
But then I don't know what Ramen noodles are. Kindly explain to me.
Thanks

I hope Larry doesn't mind me jumping in here.

The point was that Larry was willing to make, from scratch, any nice meal they wanted, but they chose cheap, salty noodle soup instead. Larry was the one who was disappointed because they turned down real home-cooked food for a practically instant soup.

Thank you Barbara. It was a misundertanding on my part. Sometimes "we foreigners" take words literally. I still don't know what Ramen noodles are. Never heard this word before.

ramen noodles - Google Product Search

It's a noodle soup of Japanese origin. It is sold a lot in the US as a dried noodle package with a separate seasoning packet that you combine with hot water to make soup. Some folks use half the water and make a noodle side dish of it instead. Cheap and easy - usually $0.20 $0.25 a pack. Often on sale for a dime.
