Dinner in a Box
The fridge was sparse and I was looking for something quick to eat when I got home from my ride tonight. We don't generally shop at Sam's Club (actually I think I've been there only once in my life), but a couple of weekends ago Darlene went there with her mom and she bought some of these Simply Asia noodle bowls. One of the things that caught her eye when she was looking at them was on the ingredient list it clearly says "VEGAN". It's not often you see that, especially at a place like Sam's Club. They taste pretty decent and they're really quick to make - a minute to open the packaging and 2 minutes in the microwave. But speaking of the packaging, that's the down side (for us anyway) - there's way too much of it. They even come with their own little flimsy plastic fork. Which I suppose is convenient, but I threw it straight into the trash. We try to do our best to avoid over-packaged stuff in general and for that reason I'm not sure if we'll buy these again but it did make for a quick meal tonight.
