But it’s only some noodles…

Well, maybe some noodles I could eat.

Just what you need after Thanksgiving, a recipe for more food.

So let’s keep it light with a sneak peak at another new release from Instant Noodles, a poem by Delaware’s own 8th wonder of the world, and a heck of a great writer, Robert Fleming. You’re going to want to try his Recipe for Hard Noodles.

But, keep it on the downlow; it’s a secret.

So here’s the password: NOODLESHARD

Why are we giving away poetry for free, and early?

Because you’re special to us.

Thanks so much for your support.

Love~ Di and Dave
