Boil Toil and Trouble
I like to paraphrase, the three witches in William Shakespeare's Macbeth.
Whenever there is cauldron
rolling boil on the stove beneath me ( I'm 6'1" high )
  • Take three Ramen packages
  • Cut up four hot dogs ( one plus the number of Ramen packs )
  • Put it in enough water to submerge it all ( yes it floats )
  • Add about 1/4 cup of olive oil  ( keeps the foam down )
  • Add only one seasoning packet per three noddle packages.
  • Start a rolling boil and reduce the heat to a boil ( about 3 Minutes )

Step 3: DRAIN

When the boil is complete drain the noodles and dog slices.

But keep a cup of the juice for later.

Can't figure out why this is not coming up as collaboration. "Daddy" has an identity!
