Hangover Monday. And no, not a hangover from alcohol or other toxins, but a hangover from college basketball. Today is the National Championship game, and a good part of the nation – and Vegas – thought the Florida was going to be the outright winner of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.
Alas, the NC game will go on tonight without the Gators – it’s UConn vs. Kentucky (a team the Gators have beaten 3 times already this season). Will I watch tonight’s game? Yeah, I guess. Maybe flip channels between the game and something else that catches my fancy. I definitely won’t be glued to my TV though. Everything seems a little more blah today – even my appetite. Y’know what? It’s one of those ramen type of days.
I like to spruce up my ramen a bit – or doctor it up as my girlfriend likes to say. To this shrimp-flavored ramen, I added some fish sauce, red pepper flakes, real shrimp, chopped scallions, celery, carrots, an egg, a squeeze of lime, and sriracha. Okay, I guess it takes me as long to make a full meal as it takes to make ramen the way I like it. So I guess my ramen can qualify as a full meal. But still no bacon….
