Have you gotten tired of eating few more ramen-style noodles? I had few sat there–pork, beef and shrimp flavors–in pantry closet for few months. Don’t want to see them sitting for so long.

Few times I will use ramen noodle for wonderful hot pho soup or just new stuff to chicken noodle or just cold noodle salad then toss the flavor packets in the basket for future instant flavor when I am out of damn stock base or add something incredible tasty flavor to meats.

One time, all Halloween candies ran out, my wife took all seasonings, ketchup, mustard, and soy sauce packets in the basket to get rid of them with my little disapproval. Next day, I saw some packets are on my lawn, I took and toss them in the garbage. Don’t tell my wife about it, ok?

Sometimes I wondered what people do with the case of noodles that they bought from the store but don’t want to ask.
