The boys like noodles.
They like-like noodles.
As in like-like gonna ask them to go steady in study hall like-like.
Consequently our pantry now resembles something out of the Asian food aisle in the grocery store.
The other day we ventured out to my home away from home,
the place where we buy ridiculously large quantities of food every week,
and spend an equally ridiculous amount of money
And as we passed by the shrimp the boys simultaneously attempted to launch themselves out of the shopping cart and do a nose dive directly into freezer.
Huh, I guess they like shrimp.
So we picked up a bag or 12 of some frozen shrimp and then we saw these
First can we please stop for a moment and take note of "Bowl Noodle" rather than "Noodle Bowl".
Crackin me up.
Anyhoo, we found some shrimp noodle bowls/bowl noodles and
gooooood night look at the size of those shrimp inside!
This is gonna be great!
They screeched with excitement and joy as I placed a ginormous box containing something like 32 bowls of these things into the cart.
I'm awesome like that.
We got home and they requested the shrimp noodle bowls and a side of shrimp for dinner,
I fire up the water,
pull the lid of that bad boy back
and look what was staring back at me.
You don't see it?
Here, let me zoom in a bit for you.
See it now?
The tiniest little shrimp(singular!) you ever did see?
Please do note the size proximity to a PEA for goodness sake.
And in the spirit of full disclosure you should also know that this is indeed not the pre-cooked picture...but indeed, thanks to the boiling water, this shrimp has reached it's maximum size.
I'm so writing a letter.
a place to become
