Too much MSG for me. For a while I used to throw away half of the seasoning packet. These days I just leave them all at the store. I guess I'm not "everyone."

I don't want to see Ramen on my plate! (Wait! That's a different topic!)

first i'd have to quit my job, go to Japan for a year or two, wash floors and dishes, before ever getting close to the stove and then maybe if I am hard working enough, maybe then I will learn how to make ramen noodles. Though in the movie, mentioned above they never do shouw how the noddles are made. Whivh is the important part. Broth I bet I could make now.

Some Asian markets sell fresh, plain packaged refrigerated ramen noodles without seasoning packets. Those are good. I like making miso ramen when I use those.

Can of Hormel Chili or a can of whatever veggie my hand hits first in the pantry.
I"m never out of Raman. I buy the sixpacks of them.
I only add a can of petite peas and some butter. Salt has never been a problem for me as I seldom reach for the salt shaker. And if I do it is sea salt. Nor is MSG. Like you, I keep a six pack on hand. Great for midnight quick meals. For me, one pack is very filling.

If the trap comes out clean tomorrow morning, I'll remove all from the pantry and scrub everything yet one more time.

No ramen until spring unless I have extra sealed plastic containers to store them in.

Yes! Success! Glad it's working, Claire!

Yeah, but I hate to open my pantry. It is a bizarre cupboard that has never been invaded before. The previous critters were not pasta lovers! Who knew a dry bit of uncooked pasta would do it. Can't wait to scrub the darned thing!
