Happy National Noodle Ring Day (12/11)

noodle 1Ok… I researched it, then I made it, and then I ate it. I’m still not convinced A Noodle Ring is  something, though. There were a few different recipes for it, of course. There always are. But, there were several weird side dish type recipes that were called “Noodle Rings,” and there were also a couple of weird, not quite dessert-style recipes. So, frankly, in a land of recipes that consist of noodles either mixed with pimento or sugar, it was a no brainer. I mean, I’d never thought to make a noodle dessert out of noodles before. Anyway, never really understood what that damn pimento was ever doing in an olive anyway. It never really added anything to it besides a bit of a perverse connotation when viewed from certain angles. So, now I’m going to put in a ring of noodles? I don’t think so.

The recipe that I liked the best, though, and consequently chose, was the one that looked impossible to believe would come out amounting to anything. This thing basically advised, just add some sugar, cream cheese and butter to it, and you’re good! The thing of it is, if you add sugar, cream cheese and butter to just about anything it turns out good.

Here’s what I love about this dessert Noodle Ring thing. If you were to drizzle in a little bit of melted chocolate into the mess, you’d have yourself something that truly qualifies as dessert. It’s the kind of “home cooked” something that I could, maybe, have impressed my college girlfriend with on my nothing budget, because it literally cost me, like, three dollars to make (not including the round cake baking thing that I only now own because of this list).

For the record, and besides the chocolate, I think it should also be baked covered. The noodles around the edges were way too crunchy in the finished product. They actually hurt my molars!

See you Wednesday for National Ambrosia Day.

About Jim Clark

"If it was worth doing, then it is worth writing!" -- Jim Clark -- Someone else probably said that before, and I'm sure that each semester she starts her Creative Writing 101 class by writing it on the board, but I never took that lady's class so I am taking her quote! I work in the world of advertising, but I write for a living. Here in the second decade of the '00s, we find ourselves in a culture where virtually everyone writes for a living. With all the clicking and clacking on Facebook, Twitter, emails and texts, our lives are more than ever intertwined with writing. At the same time, it's also become increasingly more important to shorten our thoughts down to as few characters as possible. So, now, more than ever, I think it's also important to hold a place in our lives for expanding and honing our thoughts through writing. This is my place for that.
