I'm intrigued by this idea for do-it-yourself instant ramen soup. I don't bring my lunch to work now because I dislike carrying a separate bag or box, and can't fit the food into my Co-Pilot. (Instead I keep sandwich items in the office, since we have a refrigerator.) However, this looks much tastier. I wonder if it would work to put the items in a thin thermos, like the Klean Kanteen that fits in the water bottle pocket of most Tom Bihn bags, and after rehydrating, pour it into a bowl.
