Yakisoba at Costco

The local universities, Vanderbilt, Lipscomb, Belmont, TSU, are back in session, and Costco is full of college students and their parents measuring the furniture and stocking up on food.  I saw one student with only one thing in his cart - Yakisoba frozen soba noodles.  I had never tried these, but this was a sign.

So simple - three minutes on high in the microwave.  I added a handful of Costco fully-cooked tail-off shrimp, a little chopped Costco roast chicken, and 1/4 cup toasted pine nuts, and the two of us could easily split one package.

When we lived in Japan in the late 50's, I remember soba carts everywhere, but never trying them. I'm sure we would have had a significant language barrier; but, still, we missed so much.

This box contains six 9 oz. packages of 500 calories each.  I paid under $12.00 for the box which is less than $2.00 each package.

I foresee these becoming a staple here.
