I have such an interesting life.
So I enjoy a wonderful day out and about in Baltimore (don’t make that face) and get to my Airbnb room for the night. I had craved some good old Oodles of Noodles and much to my surprise there was no microwave in the room. Ok, that presents a problem. What do I do now? I thought for a moment and then it dawned on me….”Hmm, the sink has hot water, what if I turn on the hot water and use it to cook the noodles? It won’t be as hot as the microwave but it would still be perfectly edible.”
Again, I know you are making that face but what else was I supposed to do? I didn’t have a bowl so I used a takeout container from Whole Foods that I happened to have. No, not even the plastic one but the one made from recycled cardboard.
So ghetto, for sure and I mean that in the best way possible. Here are the instructions:
1. Thoroughly clean out the sink
2. Run your water until its as hot as it will get
3. Put the uncooked noodles in and wait
4. In about ten minutes put the noodles into the container with hot water and enjoy.
Keep in mind that ceramic is a great conductor of heat so you don’t have to worry about the water getting cold by the time the noodles are ready.
A variation of this theme would be to just put the hot water into the container you are using and cook them that way. Either way you end up with a meal and no longer a hungry belly. I am pretty sure you are laughing at me but that ok cause sometimes you just gotta do what ya gotta do.
