A few weeks ago I took my son, Xander on a fun little date night to celebrate my birthday.   My oldest was working, my daughter was at tumbling and the hubby, well, he was out of town and I just didn't feel like cooking, soooo, the little guy and I went out to celebrate,,,at WholeFoods. If you're thinking it's a pretty lame place to go, it really wasn’t.  We got to hang out, walk around, and pick exactly what we wanted to eat from a large selection of healthy foods.  The options were so much better than most restaurants we could have gone to.   X-man decided on the salad bar and loaded his plate high ($15 salad anyone?) and myself, I picked to eat from the Ramen Station and had their chef make me this amazing, spicy, bowl using tofu instead of chicken. The food was absolutely wonderful. Since that night, I’ve been craving their ramen bowl, in fact, I could probably eat it every night. The veggies were so fresh, the broth nice & light and that spice was a fun little treat to my palate.   Seeing that it'd be a little silly to go there for dinner everyday, I thought I'd give it a go and make it myself.  I am so glad I did!
