Last week, or maybe it was two weeks ago now, we had Noodles for supper. It was one of those nights that I did not have anything planned for supper, and I had to just see what we had in the kitchen.
I had bought a tiny carton of some kind of broth in the store. Was going to use that to cook my noodles in, but it was not enough to really have a taste when mixed with the water in the pot. So we decided to add a packet of good ol' onion soup mix.
We have a lot of that.
We bought more than we meant to this summer. One thing about shopping soon after we arrive in the US, is that many times, I forget what I have bought, until I start packing it all.
We also added a sliced carrot. I could have also added some Chinese cabbage. I let the soup boil for a little while to soften the carrots and then I added the noodles.
Chinese noodles are super cheap. They also cook much faster than noodles that we normally cook in the US. If you are making this in America, you could use spaghetti, but if you can find Chinese noodles, it would be better.
Based on the sound of slurping at the table, I would say that this cheap meal was a success!
