(but I still remember the display of like 40 different types of insanely tasty prepackaged ramen bowls I saw in a Indonesian airport lounge. I actually cooked one for myself, ginger flavored or something, and I have to say it was so good)
Apropos of very little besides an excuse to talk about ramen, I'd like to mention my lunch the other day. I was working from home that day and was using the time I didn't spend on the bus/ferry to wander through the garden. Packaged food is something that I abhor. It's tasteless crap amped up with sugar, salt, and MSG to provide a crack cocaine level of stimulation. My life is pretty much centered around food and I've given a lot up to have it that way. My freezer is full of a cow a bought from a farmer (grass-fed and finished) and chickens I processed myself. There's little more sublime that the scent of a carrot just pulled from the ground or a fig at the peak of ripeness from my neighbor's tree.
So I walked to the chicken coop and checked the nest box and was pleased to find that it contained two fresh eggs still warm from the chicken. What a treat, right? So what's the best way to enjoy these eggs?
Poached in oriental-flavor Top ramen with Sriracha hot sauce. God DAMN do I love cheap, packaged ramen.
