Unfortunately, the place I love to eat from makes rice that turns into rocks when you nuke it. So I'm looking in my cabinet, because I don't want to eat the leftover Mai Po tofu (or, as I call it, My Poor tofu) without a starch. I'm looking in my cabinet, thinking I'll cook some of the spaghetti or vermicelli, then:
BRAIN: You have Ramen
STOMACH: Don't want beef flavored Ramen with spicy tofu
BRAIN: So don't add the flavor packet.
So, I broke up the Ramen, cooked it, strained it, dumped some of the tofu and sauce on top. YUM!!!
...when you don't feel like cooking 20-minute rice.
