Using my noodle

February 19th, 2007 at 11:59 pm

Today New World had 2-minute noodles on sale at nz.20 per packet, normally nz.35. There is not much nutrition in them, so I tend to avoid them, but they are handy to have in the cupboard when you need a quick meal. I sprout my own mung beans and add an egg for a cheapie stir fry. So I bought 10 packs.

Broccoli was on special and I got some reduced price carrots, so will make a noodle-vege-cheese casserole tonite. I don't buy canned soup, but will use the flavor sachet with the noodles to make a sauce.

    I'm kind of scared to see the search traffic that this post brings in when it gets indexed in the search engines Wink

    Sorry Jeffrey - is this some reference I don't get? Using one's noodle in British English means using one's head or brains.

    yes, I realised that after I posted the comment...I may have been in Japan too long as it could have sexual connotations here.

    Laceshawl, it means using one's brain in American English, too. Hey, I was driving three teenage Mexican boys to the mall, when I said something in Spanish (not my first language) that made all their eyes bug out, and they started gasping. They couldn't beleive I said it. Well, I'll never say it again! I had no idea it had such a very strong effect. I'm sure I will never accidentally say anything taboo in Japanese, though, as the only Japanese I know is a children's song!
