One of the reasons I am so happy about living in Korea is the food– oh, and the fact that I can legitimately cook in my apartment. I am looking to save money and eat more healthily and I think I can accomplish that here. This past week I bought great ingredients (tofu, seaweed, sweet peppers, a pumpkin, tomatoes, sprouts, yams, buckwheat noodles, Japanese kombu broth, wasabi, soy milk, bananas, etc.) at a neighborhood grocery store and I have been preparing all of my breakfasts and dinners. I was unable to shop this easily in Thailand– nor was I able to really cook in my own house. All I had was a rice cooker (some of you may recall that the first 8 months of my living in Thailand was done without fridge or even microwave). You can imagine how ecstatic I was when I moved into my S. Korean apartment and found a stove top, a mini oven, pots and pans, cutting boards, and a fridge. Mom told me she would be sending me some dried legumes soon… maybe I can convince her to send me some quinoa as well… ❤ Food.
