This week, we're showing how it only takes a few ingredients to upgrade instant ramen. You'll never want to go back to the regular version again!
Ingredients: 1 package instant ramen, 1 egg, 1-2 slices American cheese, green onion, red pepper, toasted sesame seeds
1. Chop the green onion and set aside to add to the finished bowl.
2. Bring 2 cups water to a boil over medium heat and add the ramen noodles. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3. After 2 minutes, crack an egg into the pan and fold the noodles over top of it. Cook for an additional minute.
4. Turn the heat off and mix in the flavoring packet and red pepper. If you are also adding other ingredients like vegetables or meat, this is the best time to do so.
5. Put a slice or two of American cheese at the bottom of your bowl, and pour the ramen over top. Add the green onion and toasted sesame seeds, and it's ready to serve! For the best experience, break the egg right before eating to allow the yolk to mix with the broth.

Larry Tye is the bestselling author of Bobby Kennedy and Satchel, as well as Superman, The Father of Spin, Home Lands, and Rising from the Rails, and co-author, with Kitty Dukakis, of Shock. His most recent book, Demagogue: The Life and Long Shadow of Senator Joe McCarthy, is the definitive biography of the most dangerous demagogue in American history, based on a first-ever review of his personal and professional papers, medical and military records, and recently unsealed transcripts of his closed-door Congressional hearings.
The author will be joined in conversation with Brian Frosh, Attorney General for the State of Maryland. Prior to his current office, he served in the Maryland General Assembly for 28 years, including 12 as chairman of the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee. Brian has a connection to the book, his father, Stanley Frosh, also an attorney represented a federal employee accused of being a communist by Joseph McCarthy.
Presented by A Likely Story Bookstore, the Historical Society of Carroll County, and Carroll County Public Library. This event will be live-streamed on Facebook and later uploaded to the CCPL YouTube channel. Audience Q&A will follow the talk as time allows.

Speaking with other people who have multiple sclerosis can be one of the most empowering and helpful things for someone with MS. Sharing stories, feelings, and experiences with people in similar situations are not only therapeutic, but also enlightening, and can often improve emotional health. This group is part of the MS Focus Independent Support Group Network.
