Ramen Is Smaller Now by Laura Moncur 07-07-06

Ramen is smaller now. I know it for a fact.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not complaining about the reduction of noodle-goodness. I would never complain about a 17-cent meal. I just eat it gratefully and know that the high starch and fat content is enough.

But Ramen IS smaller now. I know it because the noodles fit in my smallest pan and they didn’t before.

I’ve had these pans since we got married. I don’t know who gave them to me, but thank you. They have lasted longer than the plethora of crockpots we received from everyone else. They don’t have that fancy non-stick surface, yet nothing sticks to them. They have been the best pans I could have ever had.

It used to bug me that the Ramen noodles didn’t quite fit in my smallest pan. Not enough to use the larger pan, but it still bothered me. I considered popping the noodle brick in half, but then they wouldn’t be as enjoyable. No, I just let the Ramen sit in the pan diagonally until they were soft enough to conform to its edges.

But the Ramen is smaller now. It fits easily into the pan. That means I’m getting less noodles, but I’m happy.

Because I’m not the kind of person to complain about a 17-cent meal.
