In memory of 4650, 21917, and the other one, I have prepared and eaten a special dish reserved for those who like their food well and truly Sad.

Strange and Mournful False Hope Soup
Serves one. Alone. In the rain.

  • One (1) package of chicken-flavored Ramen. It doesn't matter what kind of chicken-flavored Ramen it is -- chicken, chicken & mushroom, chicken & vegetable, chicken & dogfood -- just as long as there's chicken there you'll be ok. (And what are you doing eating chicken & dogfood ramen, anyway?)
  • One (1) egg. Hopefully not rotten.

  1. Cook the package of ramen the usual way -- boil water, add ramen, wait 3 minutes.
  2. Just before you take the pot off the heat, crack in the egg. Stir it up.
  3. Then strain off any excess water (keep as much water as you'd like for soup tho), add flavor packet, stir.
  4. Eat. You won't need to cry all that much, thankfully. Crying is reserved for the Chunky Chunks O' Ramen recipe.

Well, there's my good deed for the day. It happens occasionally, I admit. Now time for a nap.

My husband eats this all the time, except he keeps the soup. He learned about it in the Philippeans, where it's actually a pretty common meal. I can't say that I've ever tried it, though.

Oops! I should mention you should keep the water for the soup part, but usually not all the water. I usually only keep as much water as will fit in a largish bowl. It's really just a variant on an egg drop soup kinda thing, only with ramen and an appropriate name for eating it with chicken-based things.

Er, raw egg? Or does it get cooked enough but the hot water/noodleness to be edible?

The water's boiling and the egg disperses through the broth, so yeah, it cooks very quickly into little shreds of egg.
