Wash down these miracles with sugar-free lemonade.

It’s a quiet Friday evening and I thought I’d hang out in Howdygramland while I do laundry and wait for some significant thunderstorms to show up. is promising 8 p.m. but I practically never believe them.

Ever heard of Miracle Rice or Miracle Noodles? These are amazing products made of plant fiber that contain no fat, no carbs, no protein, no sodium and NO CALORIES. They’re packaged in brine in a plastic bag, and you just dump the contents in a strainer, rinse with cold water* and throw them into soup, stir-fry or sauce. The noodles are available in angel hair or fettucini styles; the rice is actually more like little teeny pasta balls. I ordered a six-pack of Miracle Rice this morning from and can’t wait to start horsing around with them!
*Never EVER under any circumstances smell this product before it’s rinsed. Trust me.
