This guy loves to cook. It might be more precise to say this guy loves to eat. As cooking is one of the processes that leads to eating, by the transitive property of logic (if A→B and B→C, then A→C), this guy loves to eat.

Though rare, people have been known to take damage in the process of food preparation. Take whatever safety precautions are necessary to avoid hit point loss. By following any of these instructions you agree that you alone are responsible for any owies sustained in the process.

Microwave Top Ramen

Snapware® makes an excellent platform for cooking Top Ramen® in the microwave. Not only because it's glass, but the lid can be used as a carrier and you can store a packet of ramen inside the dish (ideal for inexpensive work lunches).

Normally, I use the stove to cook two packets of at a time, dump out the water, and stir in only one of the flavor packets. Other brands will work but Top is my preferred poison. These instructions were written using a 1200 watt microwave.
  • Put two cups (470 ml) of water in a four cup (950 ml) square Snapware dish.
  • Place the dish on top of its own lid, depression side up. (This will keep the dish relatively immobile while holding only the lid).
  • Place the dish and lid in the microwave and cook on high for two minutes.
  • Leaving the dish in the microwave, add the uncooked noodles*.
  • Cook on high for three minutes.
  • Grasping the Snapware lid by the flaps, carefully remove the dish from the microwave.
  • (Optional) Even more carefully, pour the water out**.
  • Stir in one flavor packet**.
  • Impress everyone with your true dedication to being unsophisticated.
* I like to place one brick in the bowl, break the other brick into various sized pieces, and fit them in where I can, making sure that most of the noodles are submerged (a few sticking up is no problem, as during cooking they'll sink into the water).
** I'll admit that this was a little too salty for me. I either leave the water in while stirring in the flavor packet or only use half of the packet.
