I effin' L♥VE ramen noodles sooooo much.

Damn shame I can't eat them anymore.

Stinkin' carbohydrates!!!!

 
I used to love them till one day, I decided it might be good to mix powdered mashed potatoes and peas into the Ramen.  It wasn't.  Totally gross.  After that, they kinda lost their appeal.
 
Nowadays, I avoid the stuff due to the sodium content.  Plus, the noodles are supposed to be really bad for one's health (not that that ever stopped me before).

I think I'm a walking 'salt-lick', these days. I LOVE Ramen noodles - even broke a molar on some 'jail chips' a few weeks back (reminds me - gotta get that taken care of!), but today I settled for a Taco Hell Breakfast Quesadilla. Oh! The cheese!
With a WaWa 24 ounce coffee with 4 honey packs and some Irish Cream...
I was in pig heaven so much I forgot to ask for a bogus 'Senior Discount'.

Mama was kind enough to buy some corn yesterday, add a bunch of real butter and even more salt than I need and I might have the candy corn/burger squirts tomorrow.  But the taste is so heavenly, it's worth it!

Oh!  It's so freaking hot in here, I'm sweating!

Something I've never heard of before moving to Wisconsin...

Mama usually just wants a chocolate shake when I go to Culver's, I got my usual. A double deluxe burger and mashed potatoes/gravy. She was feeling a little crazy today!  This worried me a little bit because earlier this year I had to take her to the hospital because she had an allergic reaction to what else...CHEESE!

I give her what she wants, happy wife - happy life!

Introducing:  Cheese Curds!

Our cheese curds are a dairyland delicacy. Made using the freshest, un-aged yellow and white Wisconsin cheddar cheese, deep-fried golden brown for a warm buttery crunch. Provided exclusively to Culver's by La Grander Hillside Dairy in Stanley, Wisconsin.

I still love Ramen noodles and I'm having some spicy Mexican ones right now...with an egg stirred and boiled in. 
The AfgyPup's PTSD must be subsiding a bit as he tells me he pretty much has dropped Ramen noodles, which were one of his basic staples. He washes the noodles really well before boiling them, something I asked him about. He said the Afgy-version of Ramen noodles are often made pretty close to latrines.

^ Please see the Country Crock Plant Butter thread.  Or maybe I will just post it.

Poverty food? Umm, does fish 'n chips from a roadside lorry count? If it does, then consider me guilty everytime I return to the U.K.
Here in the States I've been guilty of enjoying something called scrapple, known in the Philadelphia region. I don't know if one could consider that "poverty food". I think it's delicious.

WRT "poverty food", I believe that I have experienced the best of both worlds and the worse of both worlds over the last several decades.
 
Let's start with the worst:
In the late-1980s I was in transitional housing with no ready access to food. So I visited The Bread of Life mission in downtown Seattle. After sitting through a four hour earwhipping (sermon), I was presented with a paper plate containing approx. 3 TBSP smashed potatoes, several pieces of 'mystery meat' topped off with a tablespoon or two of rather lumpy gravy and one piece of somewhat stale bread on the side. Cry
Needless to say, this was both my first AND last visit here; I found other places to get fed without the damn earwhipping and with much better food.
 
Let's finish with the best:
There was a place called the Downtown Emergency Service Center on First Ave. near Pike St. in downtown Seattle. Although this place wasn't shiny and elegant, you could have your fill of coffee and various kinds of doughnuts without the damn earwhipping that missions would have you endure, you could use the shower if necessary so that you didn't reek, and there were various forms available for you to apply for other services catering to homeless people or people who had somewhere to sleep but no money such as myself. Both the staff and users of the facility were extremely nice and nobody tried to rip you off (of what little you might have had).
I found this place to be a total blessing in disguise!!! Big smile

Poverty food? Maybe not.  It's getting more difficult for me to make a run to the grocery store.  I did it anyway this morning because my wife needed her staple stuff. Swiss Miss, Mocha Latte and she had a special request.  I went down the aisle 2 times!  She wanted some Spray Starch, something for her jewelry thing.  I told the cashier, she called one of the people on the floor. He brought up 4 different brands!

Thank you?

Now! Not poverty food, I just wanted to feed PaW's thread!  I have a nice piece of beef and some potatoes in the crock pot.
