Have Yourself an Instant Noodle Christmas

How does one construct a holiday scene out of non-perishables?

A) Find the cheapest donatable item for the food shelf.

B) Calculate the how many items needed for the 'showiest holiday piece'.

C) Stay up until two in the morning and then dream about crispy noodles.

On Thursday, December 18th, I enlisted...

...Enlisted to help make a huge structure out of a food shelf items with JH. It was for Digi, Int'l, which has a holiday contest each year. We went shopping for the non-perishables.

Then got to work building...

and building....

and finally, crowning our new jewel.

We made our very own Holiday Christmas Ramen Tree!
(Complete with wifi controlled electronic train set and tunnel!)

It turns out we didn't win the contest after all, but even if we lost we knew we would win! All the soup was donated to the food shelf!

Marauchan Christmas to all, and to all a good Ramen!
