For our realtor troll friends: HousingPANIC welcomes ramenramenramen.net to the blog

For our ramen-eating realtor troll friends, I've added the Ramen Blog to the HP blogroll. You'll find all kinds of (I guess) delicious ramen recipes, ramen reviews, current ramen issues and events, and a general all-things-ramen celebration.

We here at HP want to help you, now that your former discredited profession has imploded. Life is too short for Chicken Flavored Ramen every night. Spice it up - there's so much more out there. And good luck with the job search.

Bon Appetite!

One neat thing about Shimadaya’s ramen is that there are three flavor packets! There’s a packet of soup base, a packet of seasoning oil, and a pack of spices. Those of you who enjoy reading ingredients will find that there’s both chicken extract and chicken extract powder, two kinds of fat (the seasoning oil is basically a mixture of chicken fat and pork fat), and two helpings of MSG (in the soup base as well as in the “spices”). Yum!

A "Chicken in every pot" *** Scratch that ----> "A ramen in every pot".

Don't forget all the delicious (possibly cancer-causing) MSG in that ramen...

From MSN.com today:

Repossession agents in areas hit by foreclosures say they've been picking up vehicles both from people struggling to keep their homes and from those now left without work: construction workers, pavers, landscapers and real-estate agents.

"It is actually stunning the number of cars we're taking from people who are supporting the local real-estate market," said J. Patrick Altes, the president of Falcon International, a recovery agency with offices throughout Florida. "It's almost the type of thing where we see it and you wonder if anyone else sees it. . . . It's like they turned off the spigot."

If that's not a telling corrolary, I don't know what is.

Ther is now a new opportunity for the used house salesmen / women. They can now sell their own repossed used cars.

Don't forget there is no vitamin C in Ramen so if you eat a diet of only Ramen you will get scurvy.

I usually add a little bit of fresh vegetable to my ramen, it really transforms it into a legitimate meal, examples:

I had the spicy lime ramen the other day and added fresh corn.

Miso ramen with shitake mushroom.

Spicey kim chee ramen with baby bok choy.

Bon appetit!

Tampopo is a very funny Japanese movie with ramen at its core:

It opens with a hilarious parody of Tea Ceremony -- set in a ramen shop of course with an old ramen master.

Those are all fine and dandy, but my new product "Ramen Helper" puts those to shame.

You better grab some Top Ramen while you still can. Soon demand for it will skyrocket, and you will be priced out forever.

Please don't mix up instant noodles with a real ramen.
Real ramen is nutritious.

Well, American always love Americanized cheap crap though.

Real ramen served in an actual restaurant is not the instant 10 cent kind.

What...Shimadaya Ramen is way too high-class! You need a picture of real Realtor Ramen, the 5/$1 kind...

Eat Ramen without the powder MSG soup base. Use chicken broth and add some veggies and coldcuts or sausage.

this sounds like tomato ketchup and hot water = soup from the The Great Depression
