soba, anyone?

by Sofia

I recently moved and found myself needing to stock up on food all by myself for the first time. I quickly became aware of how eclectic my personal cuisine is. The first basics to make it into my pantry and fridge were vegetables, spices, eggs, soymilk, granola, and all sorts of grains and beans. But today I realized that I was in serious need of some Asian basics, so I made my way over to a little Chinese market and picked up oolong tea, soba noodles, soy sauce, coconut milk, Sriracha, seasame oil, and had to stop because I had reached the number of things I told myself I’d buy. (Shopping for food is like gambling for me and I have to give myself a limit, otherwise I’d grossly overdo it.)
