Sarah - I'd settle for dehydrated, rather than freeze-dried, artichokes! I've got to figure out a way to get out ahead of you. The baked ramen is all bought up, apparently, before I've even had a chance to try it, and I've got my daughter in Oregon looking for pint freezerbags. Sigh.
As for the discussion about adding water, I'm in the not-measuring group. With practice, I can guess fairly closely on how much to pour into the fb's, and if it's runny, then that's how I wanted it after all.
