There is a hidden cent sign. Press and hold the ALT key and type the number 0162 to make a cent symbol. When you release the ALT the cent sign will be there.

Mostly around here, you can go to Walmart and get ramen for 10¢ per pack, across all the "flavors". I usually keep a case of it as a standby for a quick thing. Not super healthy, because of the sodium, but usually load it up with thin cuts of vegetables and end up with 3 portions - all those vegetables and meat. Mostly I buy the "chicken" flavor as it is pretty neutral and for me, tastes okay with doctoring - a dab of butter and all the add ins.

Often, instead of just the pork and green onions, there will be thinly cut carrot, celery, bean sprouts if I can get them, cilantro and /or parsley, thin shavings of onion, different sweet peppers, corn, green beans green or wax type cut thin to cook quick with the noodles. Shreds of greens work well, too. Whatever you have on hand - even bits of already cooked sweet potato are good; the sweet potato breaks down, but coats the noodles a bit.

If making as a soup instead of a noodle dish, I use my own stock . For me, the noodle pack is a starting point, often.

Supposedly you can input any Unicode character that way (each has its own code) but in practice it doesn't always work. On this machine (Win7, Firefox), <alt-0162> does work using the numeric keypad (with Num-shift On) but not using the number keys on the main keyboard. IIRC, the key sequence for '°' makes the Firefox browser nuts and it backpages, losing whatever you were writing.

So I have the little Character Map program pinned to my Start menu. Select-Copy-Paste. (It also tells you the compound codes.)

Character Map is in Start->Accessories=>System Tools.

Dang, I've been on computers since before Windows came out and didn't know the character map was there. Thanks.

Earlier I cooked some Skin Black Spicy Pot Au Fer Ramen doctored up with chili paste, sriracha, fish oil, Hoisin sauce, mushrooms, cilantro and green onions. I had a craving with all this Ramen talk.


Right now I'm cooking beef shanks in a gravy, it's smells awesome in here and I haven't added the onions and bell peppers yet. I'm still on the concentrating the beef flavor process.

Okay, so I don't know where to post this so I will do it here. My friend asked me if I was going to make the ham glaze for the ham I just left with them for Thanksgiving. I said I could, and that I had been thinking about it yesterday. Then I said, "now, if I could just find that recipe".

She texts me back, "just emailed it to you".

LOL, love it and I have not found it in any of my recipes. I thought I would post it here for others if they are interested in making it. It's not exactly cheap eaten, but neither is the ham I just dropped at their house.



Ham Glaze

1/2 cup dark amber maple syrup

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 heaping tsp dijon mustard

1/8 tsp each cinnamon and ginger

Put all ingredients in saucepan, bring to boil stirring often. Boil 3 minutes, remove from heat and let cool.
