I had planned on making a mushroom ramen dish from Takashi’s Noodles, but I needed to go to Meijer for some of the ingredients. Since I was going to McHenry, I decided to go to Michael’s and Pier 1 for Halloween stuff and Dick’s Sporting to replace my old compression shorts. By the time I got to the grocery store it was 8:00. There was no way I was going to come home and cook a fancy meal at 9:00. Instead, I bought a package of Annie Chun’s Spring Vegetable Ramen and added shiitake mushrooms, spinach, and green onions. Of course it’s not going to compare to a home-cooked (or Takashi-cooked) meal, but it is good in a pinch.
I also picked up a box of Melissa’s Edamame.
Meijer has a good selection of vegan items. It has a huge international aisle, Asian produce, and a decent variety of Gardein, Amy’s and Lightlife products at low prices.
