Every week, without fail, when Wednesday rolls around, we are scrambling.  Projects, after school activities and plans for the upcoming weekend are at the top of the list and for me, I still need to plan dinners and have something to pack for lunches.  UGH…it can wear you out!  You know what I mean, you don’t really feel like cooking, it’s cold and you don’t want to go out, but still, you gotta feed the family.  Well, here’s the answer to handle “my mid-week cooking issues”… Ramen Noodle Soup.  It takes maybe 20 minutes to make, is warm, satisfying and really, really cheap!  I’m filing this recipe under “Cheap & Cheerful” with the subtitle of “Stress Buster.”
