A Favorite Quick Lunch Idea - CP Shrimp Wonton Soup with Noodles

I need a quick lunch from time to time and this is one of my "go to" meals. This is a CP Shrimp Wonton Soup with Noodles bowl from Costco. As is, it's a pretty solid frozen meal with 275 calories. Like most prepared soups, it is a little high in sodium so don't eat them at every meal. I like to dress this up a bit by throwing in frozen kale before it goes into the microwave. This provides some color and crunch to go along with the soft noodles and wontons, not to mention the benefits of fiber, vitamins and potassium. Be sure to add 30 seconds on the microwave if you add frozen kale. After pulling the bowl out of the microwave, I'll either add some hot chili sauce or Sriracha hot sauce to give it a little kick. All told, this lunch is under 300 calories which leaves room for something sweet. Enjoy!

Roundabout Construction Planned for June

It's been awhile since my last post so I wanted to kick things off again on the right foot.

I've posted before about roundabouts, in particular the one planned for the State St. and Ellsworth Rd. intersection that will start this June at a cost of $2.3M. The story was posted in

I really don't recommend trying this in the new roundabout ;)
