Cheap Cuisine-

Today was Yakisoba Teriyaki Flavor by Maruchan. The package is light, and a cooking/eating bowl is part of the package. Just remove the wrapper, open the cover half way, and remove the two packets of ingredients. Open the dried vegetable packet and put it in with the noodles in the bowl. Add water to the fill line, close the cover and microwave for four minutes. Let sit for a minute, then add the flavor packet, stir and eat.

The flavor is light, a bit sweet with the pineapple flavor, and just a touch spicy. The noodles had just enough firmness to provide a good texture. The reconstituted vegetables were good enough. It wasn't like chewing on grass, at least. At a dollar it is not a bad meal. I shall keep these in stock.

The required microwave prevents most campers from enjoying this one. The instructions are microwave only. Unless your camping gear includes a microwave, this one is out.

I have been looking into small microwaves (and air conditioners) to add to my truck tent camping gear. So far it just does not seem like a good idea. Hardly necessary, really. Of the two I think the air conditioner would win out, and even that seems a bit much.

What would our pioneer ancestors say?
