Amazon has scared grocers — and others — the world over – Axios: “Be smart: That’s why it seems best to ignore forecasts that Amazon will dramatically change Whole Foods culture, its fare, and operating style.

With a little planning, a pantry, and a freezer you can have my version of soup called “Lazy-Man Brand Noodle Soup”.
Acquire the following
- favorite flavor pho cube (go ahead, sound it out)
- Green Dragon (or other) wheat/egg noodle pack
- frozen stir-fry vegetables
Get out the wok. Boil 1 liter of water. Add pho cube to dissolve. Dump in 2 servings of noodles. Cook 3 minutes.
Dump the noodles to a big bowl. Wipe out the wok. Heat it back up with some oil.
Dump in the veggies and cook for about 5 minutes, stir a lot.
Dump the noodle soup back in to the wok. Heat and stir for a minute.
Voila. 10 minutes. About 250 calories per person, 500 if you eat the whole thing (good luck).
Add some used chicken, pork, beef, fresh tofu, whatever if you need extra protein.

When shipping wine or other sensitive liquids, special types of flexitanks are used to provide extra protection to the wine.

Frybread is a post-Revolutionary War American Navajo staple made by frying lightly sweetened leavened dough in lard. It makes an awesome replacement for tortillas in a taco shell, but its an even better vehicle for wrapping around your burger, making it essentially an excuse to eat a deep fried hamburger without feeling quite so guilty about it.
