Noodles and cookie dough, together or separate, are not the best things to eat. I know that, really I do.
But without cooking rice and beans (and I've got plenty of both) they were the fastest, easiest things I could pull off.
Ok, that's a lie. Oatmeal and apple juice would have been easier than cookie dough. It just wouldn't have been as much fun. It *would* have boosted my blood sugar a bit faster, but I forgot I even had juice until just now.
Anyway, I've been eating a lot of noodles. I bought the super-mega-jumbo pack back in... July? Yeah, I think July. And I've been eating them a bit at a time since then. I'm down to the last couple bundles of tasty bargain somen. I'm mixing the cooked noodles with caramelized onions, oil, salt, soy sauce, and sometimes (when I remember) a bit of ginger (since I now have powdered, fresh, *and* pickled), and some garlic powder. I don't know how healthy it is, but since it only takes about 4 minutes longer than just boiling water does, it's really not that bad a choice.
I was introduced to noodles with soy sauce and oil back in high school or junior high. A friend would make it when we went to her house after class. She'd cook the noodles and add the soy sauce, oil, and some MSG. It made it somehow sooo much better. If you want to try it that way, you can cheat (the flavor isn't *quite* right, but close enough) by sprinkling a bit of sugar and a bit of salt on the noodles. But if you're like me, and MSG doesn't bother you, use a little pinch. It makes everything better.
Anyway, cookie dough. I added a handful of smooshed sliced almonds for protein. It's still sickly sweet. I'm not totally sure how sugar fiends do it. I get putting a bunch of sugar in coffee (it tastes too foul to drink, otherwise) or rolling rum balls in it. But just eating it in cookies? Isn't food sweet enough already?
I might just need to test how little sugar I *really* need in cookies. Not today, tho. Maybe next year.
