Introduction: Ann Rameny

About: I'm a photographer by trade, which means I'm usually broke. So I'm always having to fix things cheaply. I'm also a Craigslist addict. I'm married and have four kids, but they're the kind that walk on four l…

As you've probably heard, Mitt and Ann Romney had some hard times in their basement apartment while attending college.  To quote Ann Romney, “We walked to class together, shared the housekeeping and ate a lot of pasta and tuna fish*.”

If she had known a little more about what it's like to be poor in current times, she would have probably specified Ramen noodles, instead of pasta. 

This inspired me to create this amazing college student dish which I call "Ann Rameny!"

* "tuna fish" is a silly thing to say when you think about it.  You wouldn't say, "pass me the turkey bird."

Step 1: What You Need:

As you probably know, you don't need much to make Ramen noodles.  You pretty much add a can of tuna and a can opener and you got it.  You may want to splurge and have this meal prepared by your personal chef, so you don't have to get that tuna smell on your hands.  Anyway, here's the basics of what you need.

-Ramen noodles (shrimp, oriental*, or chicken, all seem to go well with tuna)

-1 5oz. can of tuna

-1 microwave safe bowl or sauce pan

-A microwave or stove

-A can opener

-A little bit of canned or frozen peas, or other green vegetable (recommended)


*yes the package actually says oriental

Step 2: Follow the Instructions on the Ramen Package:

There are a few different brands of Ramen out there, so directions on each may vary.  Choose your cooking method and follow the directions on the package.

Step 3: Spice It Up

Drain liquid from noodles until you have only the amount you desire.

Add spice packet to taste.

Open tuna with can opener and drain the juice from tuna.

Discard tuna juice, or give it to your pet.

Add tuna and whatever else you desire.

MIx it all up and enjoy.

    I am not too fond of tuna. I will share what I have done.

    I have used doctored up Chicken Ramen Noodle for years.

    I take one Ranen Noodle pack and break it up into a bowl.

    Add one can of Cream of Chicken. (I do not add water yet)
    I mix it up till it is mixed well. The reason I don't add water is the cream of chicken floats around in chunks and does not mix well.

    Add water

    Add a can of chunked chicken

    Heat in microwave until noodles are soft.

    Stir in seasoning mix from the noodle pack. (I think it taste better to add it after heating.)

    I have eaten this many times for breakfast. Once I had some surprise guests near lunch time and I quickly used several packs and quickly created a large bowl of chicken noodle for us to eat.
