Using your noodle........

Well, that's it! I've had enough! There will be NO MORE!! They are Banned!! I am waging war on .........

2 minute noodles!

I don't care whether they're Maggi, Homebrand, No Frills, Fantastic or Mamee. There will be no more of these shocking packets gracing my pantry cupboard. My boys love to eat these, not in their cooked, hydrated state, but in the dry, crispy fresh-out-of-the-packet state, and I cannot cope with their gradual infiltration into my life! I come home from work, and the sickly sweet smell greets me as I open the door. On the kitchen bench will be 2 or 3 or more empty packets, with opened seasoning sachets and cut off tops strewn on the benchtop, dependent upon how many dried noodle purveyors arrived home with my boys. Today there were 3; packets, sachets and bowls with noodle dregs left in them. And little shards of noodles EVERYWHERE!!!! On the bench, on the floor in front of the bench, on the floor on the dining table side of the bench, on the dining table, on two of the dining chairs, on the floor under the table, and in a pair of shoes that were under the table. Then there was a trail that I followed over to the computer.......I tell you I am over them!....And then there's the litre or so of milk which must be consumed to counteract the salty effects of the seasoning! And the glasses with the dried on milk dregs and empty, but unrinsed plastic milk bottle left laying around.............don't even get me started on that one.......

Ah, that's better.........Lisa told me that it was good to blog....and that it helps to share.......mind you, it's not the first time I've said these things......


Thank you for letting me vent......

Love, Bloggie ;)xoxoxo

my kids usually cook theirs and then have some noodle flinging competition (or so it seems) as there is often sticky noodles within a 2 metre radius of where they ate them. Walk through the house and they stick to the soles of your feet. YUK - I hate them too!!!!!
