Here's some recipes for all you starving College Kids...and other starving folks of course! Struck me as odd that College Students and Prison Inmates tend to kind of eat the same ways??? Lack of funds and resources on both sides I guess, anyway, figured I'd bring the two together here. Have fun with these recipes!

Take a bag of Cheetos Puffs and smash them until they’re a fine powder. Then add the packet of chicken flavoring to the bag of Cheetos powder. Cook noodles in two cups of water. Add all the noodles and water to bag. Stir and shake to mix. You may or may not be able to eat out of bag; sometimes it leaks.
