Beans and Pasta~

     I am loyal to Foreign Food Mart, there's a wide-variety of goods, the owner's a really nice guy, and it feels like...."home." I don't want a ritzy, clean grocery store, I like my busy, packed, multi-lingual/ multi-cultural places, where you are always finding things. Like a little treasure hunt, there's an adventure waiting around the bend. Recently, I've been grabbing curiosities... Discoveries to make while at home!
     I've been spending a lot more time in the Itaewon area, so making the truck over to the Foreign Food Mart isn't so difficult...which is great in terms of getting much needed things, but a little stabbing on my wallet. This past week, I've grabbed some GREAT things, protein, fiber, delicious~ beans! Dried beans are far cheaper than canned ones, and at the Foreign mart they bags of dried beans are all around 3,000W! AND you get well over 5 pounds of beans per bag. Needless to state, but boil a ton of these and cooking is not needed throughout the week...not to mention all that hummus!

     Aside from them beans, I made a massive pasta dish a while ago (saving money, stomach pains) that was loaded with flavor and broccoli florets! I really don't like pasta can make a whole lot, and it's a "college" cash saver... For seasonings and spices I used a lot of white and black pepper, spicy red pepper, green tea salt, oregano, basil, and some rosemary, crushed and stewed cherry tomatoes. Next time, I'll just make carrot noodles.
