Eating what's on hand, reducing our stores

 A common scene lately: yet another baggie now emptied. No worries, I'm using it to pack kidlet's lunch for work today.
 Cereal cabinet is low: oats, cream of wheat, 1/2 pouch high protein granola (for my yogurt parfaits), 1 unopened box, 1 half used box and a baggie with 1-2 servings left of cold cereal.
 My morning routine includes making additional iced tea for the day. Today's uses gifted to me, British tea, lemon balm thru the CSA.
I think* this is the last of older Ds's foodstuffs: a 12 pack of Ramen: ideas please? Besides using as is, or for the cooked noodles under a Chinese inspired stir fry, suggestions?

The asian salads made with ramen noodles are so good and refreshing, Carol.

Asian cabbage salad with ramen noodles is really good. You should be able to google the recipe.

Will you have a chance to restock breakfast cereals before school starts? I know at our house they are a lifesaver for time in the mornings

When I make it, we always add a small can of chicken or ham to it. So adding leftover meat of some kind and adding vegetables bulks it up. There are some good ideas in this article.

This is a good recipe for using up leftover chicken as well as ramen:
