Andrew Quote of the Day

Cup o' NoodlesYou know, you think that at some point the well is going to run dry for odd things happening around here.

But then I look at my husband and realize I'll have material forever.

While finishing up his lunch a few days ago he looks rather introspectively at me and says, "You know . . . I used to throw out the noodle juice at the bottom of my Cup o' Noodles."

"Really?" I said.

"Yea, but now I don't," he said in his proud voice, "I drink it."

Heh, everyone's doing their part for the conservation effort it seems. I'm proud of you, Honey.

Wise man, that Andrew. The last of the noodle juice is the best!

That is simply the best part about the soup! Don't you just hate it when some of your noodles are hard and crunchy? Not what you want in your soup. Not sure if the water just wasn't hot enough or I didn't let it sit long enough or perhaps both!

Have a wonderful weekend!

The best part of this post is knowing that both you and Andrew are staying postitive and have an awesome sense of humor, which, along with a little help from the Guy Upstairs, will get you pretty darn far in life, you know?

Rani said...

I want to come for a visit. Or just be a fly on the wall for a day. You make me laugh and that's fantastic. Thanks.

So funny! Gotta love husbands... I wonder if Andrew would be upset to learn that Chris actually drains the juice before he adds the seasoning packet.

Amber said...

That's funny!
I am a new reader, and am trying to catch up on all the good stuff- reading through your archives.
I heart your blog!

Ha! I can imagine my husband saying something like that.

If you want to keep Andrew around for awhile, you may want to consider the salt content of the pictured product and fill him up with your homemade specialites instead.

I LOVE when some of my noodles are hard and crunch! Love, love, love! I also LOVE Heart2Heart's profile image.

Oh, whoops, thought it was a Trekkie-sign. I've outed myself as a nerd. Still a cute pic, though!

He's finally realizing that he can't afford to waste food while he's starting a new business. Snicker. Nope, I think it's just growing up, growing older and wiser.

Way to suck it up! Literally! haha

Middle class kids and parents eat these type of noodles for a meal all of the time in Honduras. Breaks my heart that this is a typical lunch.

Hm. I personally love Ramen noodles AND their broth. In reading that sentence, I now find it ironic that earlier in the day, I was musing on how my son loves Campbell's Tomato Soup and Kraft Macaroni and Cheese better than my homemade versions. Apparently, the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree. !
