The kiddos are crazy about ramen noodles. They love ramen noodle soup, yaki soba noodles with grilled anything, and ramen noodle salad, which I made for this lunch. I threw some frozen veggies into the water while the noodles were boiling. Ramen noodles cook in 3 minutes and so do most fresh greens and frozen veggies, so the whole process is quite efficient. While the noodles were cooking, I cut the meat off some leftover grilled baby back ribs (oh, how I love baby back ribs). The noodles were drained, tossed with the meat and some sesame soy dressing. Can you say yum?

The kiddos are also crazy about roasted seaweed snacks. Mmm, salty and crispy and messy. Every time the kids get into a little package of roasted seaweed, they leave a trail of seaweed crumbs in their wake.
