Not Following Directions

At least not to the letter (I’m one of those that will consult the instructions only after something doesn’t look right, oops!).

Someone gave The Cat’s mother a box of noodles.

The box is huge, five pounds, 40 servings.

According to the mother, the noodles were too hard for her to chew (she has bad teeth). She didn’t want the rest of the box and was only too happy to unload it on us (The Cat did offer to take it off her hands).

I figured I’d experiment on The Cat. Instructions said to boil for 9 to 10 minutes, I cooked it for 12 minutes.

Made a simple broth of dried mushrooms, dried seaweed, and a pinch of salt. Garnished the noodles with white stemmed cabbage, enoki mushrooms, and soy sauce chicken (also from The Cat’s mother).

Noodles are thicker than ramen but thinner than udon. The Cat didn’t seem to mind the thickness and texture.

When The Cat explained to her mother to cook it a little longer, the mother said she cooked it for over half-an-hour and it’s still to hard for her. What! Go figure. Sigh.

That’s okay, more of us to eat. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
