01/13/08 — Noodle Bowl Review #1

There are a ton of microwavable noodles out there, and I usually get whatever is on sale. But now I will go out of my way to get a Taste of Thai noodles. These are the ones that come in what looks like an Asian takeout container. I tried the peanut noodles, and they turned out really nice. Before I microwaved them for the last minute (after you do the usual microwave midway stir thing) I tossed in some mushrooms and fake crab meat from I got from a salad bar, so I actually got some protein and some veggies.

My only gripe is that it’s 300 calories a serving and 2 servings in a container, w/out my add-ins (why do food companies do this? Portable containers do not mean 2 people will eat whatever is inside!). I suppose it contains peanuts and coconut milk, so you’ll end up with a lot of calories no matter what.

Here is a shot of the final product:
