Last week I had an idea for an emergency meal- one that could be prepared at a moment's notice and still look presentable. I suck at cooking, but I just tested it out and the recipe is viable. I give you:

The Emergency Oriental Dinner
Supplies: A small pot, a bowl, a strainer, a dish for whisking eggs, and a plate.
Ingredients: 1 Package Chicken flavor Ramen, 1 egg, and some water.
1. Pour 2 cups water into the pot and bring to a boil. While you wait for the water to heat, rinse, crack, and whisk an egg in a small dish.
2. Break up ramen noodles laterally and add in. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3. Remove the pot from heat. Open flavor packet and shake the msg powder stuff down into one corner. As quickly as possible, dump the packet into the pot and shake out the remains, since the steam will cause the powder to stick to the sides of the packet.
4. Stir in flavor. Pour the ramen into a bowl.
5. Place a strainer over the now empty pot and pour the ramen back into the pot.
6. Dump the noodles out of the strainer onto a plate. Put the strainer away.
7. Put the pot back on heat and bring to a boil.
8. Slowly pour in whisked eggs and stir a little. Remove from heat when the egg goop solidifies.
9. Pour the soup back into the bowl. You now have noodles with a side of egg drop soup! (If you're really feeling fancy, you can add in some chopped vegetables to strengthen the subterfuge).

This recipe is great for decieving guests and family alike! Make them think you actually remembered about dinner and prepared a two-course meal. If you really want to lay on the fake oriental bullshit, serve them tea beforehand and fortune cookies afterward. Enjoy.
