Ramen. You know you have some around “just for emergencies.”
I love ramen noodles. But let’s face it, that powdered broth stuff is gross. So why not use veggies in your fridge and sauces in your pantry to make something marginally more healthy and way more tasty? Why didn’t I think of this in college?

A confession: as a child, I never really ate Korean food.
Of course, there is a ton of sticky white rice in my past, and I have a passing familiarity with the various banchan that are scattered around the table at any Korean barbecue joint. But my parents, first generation immigrants who wanted to assimilate their American-born daughter to American culture, raised me on burgers and hot dogs and coke. My parents ate Korean food, of course, but I, with my only-child stubbornness, usually refused it.
