Yeah… Not really the happiest of campers when I pulled coupon-attached noodles out of the fridge today. And the thing is, I don’t care so much about this 50 cents. This 50 cents wouldn’t be frustrating if I didn’t pull coupon-attached X out of the fridge 99% of the time I buy something with a coupon attached.
I wonder if I totaled all missed coupon opportunities over the years, if I’d have enough for something like… these boots that I want oh so very badly!
I bet I would. I also bet that I knew recreating my souped up soup was going to be a huge fail before I even started. You see, shirataki noodles are pretty gross. They are entirely too slimy and tasteless for soup. Depending on kale and miso to liven up slimy and tasteless wasn’t my finest idea.
I strained, rinsed, and topped with jarred marinara. Do over!
The noodles were MUCH better with the flavor of the sauce and the crunch of the kale. I ate the entire bowl and could barely tell I was eating funky 25-calorie-per-serving-noodles.
Have you ever tried shirataki noodles? What are your thoughts on these slimy, low-cal critters?
