The best invention by human hands, period.

Some of you might be saying, "whatever Wesley, computers are way better". Well bud, when the depression comes back, you eat your computer. I’ll eat my 7-for-a-dollar Ramen. Honestly, when I get that cargo jet for my birthday that I’ve been asking for, I’m gonna drop ramen noodles all over North Korea so they don’t have to eat babies and tree bark anymore.

All you need to conjure up a zesty bowl of noodly goodness is water, heat, and some sort of heat durable container. However, there are a few things you can do to make that bowl uniquely yours. I’ve heard of people cutting up hotdogs and adding them, I have yet to try this -- on purpose.

Below is what I add, you should give it a try.
(note: all measurements are “about a dash” and are neither exact nor consistent )

Crushed red pepper
Coarsely ground black pepper (pepper is king of the spices)
Diced green chives
Seasoning salt
Garlic Powder
Italian Seasonings

I am currently auditioning some chicken fajita seasoning, so we’ll just see how that goes.

If you are lucky enough to be the owner of hidden valley croutons, crush up some Italian Parmesan flavored ones and add that in the mixture. The result is something spectacular. This treat is reserved for holy days in certain circles.

Please advise on proper pronunciation. Is it
1. RAY mon
2. RAH mon

In response to the question, I have heard both pronunciations. I say "RAY mon", but I occaisionally get picked on for my often colorful rendition of words. "Wudder" instead of water is one example. To simplify things, me and Tyler have always called it "rama nama". Thanks.

Thank you for the clarification. That is very helpful.
Do you say RAY-ma NAY-ma, RAH-ma NAH-ma, RAY-ma NAH-ma, or RAH-ma NAY-ma?

In my day, it was Kraft macaroni and cheese- four boxes for a dollar. You could live an entire weekend on a dollar's worth of the stuff.

I believe that would be "ramma namma."
