Chinese Ramen Noodle Stir-Fry with Cabbage, Carrots, Spam, and Eggs

Chinese Ramen Noodle Stir-Fry with Cabbage, Carrots, Spam, and Eggs 1

I think we've all have moments when it's late at night and we're too tired to get take-out or to go grocery shopping, but we're huuungry! It's at times like this that my pantry and fridge staples come in handy.

I almost always have ramen noodles on hand. Mostly, made into soup, but sometimes a quick noodle stir-fry hits the spot. The Spam is less a staple, usually purchased if it's on sale. I've taken to buying half sizes of Spam, because sometimes a whole can is too much. Cabbage, carrots, onions are frequent grocery store purchases because I use them in so many dishes.

Ramen noodle stir-fries remind me of when lil' sis was on the high school dance team. For one of the competitions, each team member brought her a package of ramen noodles. We cooked a couple dozen packages together and my mom made a gigantic ramen noodle stir-fry for lil' sis to bring to her teammates.

But, you don't have to be a teenager to enjoy ramen noodle stir-fries. Sometimes, comfort food is such because it's so very basic.
