Three seasonings a college student should not be without
nIn my time as a college student, I have eaten more than my share of ramen and easy mac. These get quite boring after a while, so one must find ways to make them interesting. Get yourself a good supply of cayenne pepper, minced garlic, and garlic salt. Ramen is best improved with cayenne pepper and minced garlic. The cayenne pepper adds spice, while the garlic not only contributes its flavor, but makes the texture less monotonous. The cayenne pepper also goes well in easy mac, along with the garlic salt. The garlic salt has a more complex and subtle taste to it, which makes it better suited to flavoring easy mac, which is nearly tasteless to begin with. Adding pure garlic to easy mac wouldn't work as well, as eays mac isn't salty enough to back up the garlic. Garlic on its own without salt just doesn't work.
