I have had one of my favorite people staying with me lately. It’s a girl who has decided to take over my guest room while she waits for the results of the bar exam. And while she waits to do that, I am getting to flex my cooking muscles. I love to have an audience when I make food, and having that audience be a hot girl makes a lot of difference. Which brings me to today’s creation.
Since she is staying with me, she is helping to pay for the groceries. And since she had the day off from the DA’s office, she decided to research obscure markets for us to check out. Since she is a trendy Californian, she actually wants food with ingredients that you can pronounce. Weird, right? Why can’t she just accept that crappy American junk with ingredients that you couldn’t pronounce with a phonetic translation? Fuck if I know. What she found was an Eastern European market in my town that I had never heard of. As I love a good adventure and her company I figured – fuck it, let’s go see what I can come up with! And that is how we ended up at one of the most interesting places I have ever been. Got a TON of pics from there. If you want to see it, go to my About page and check out my Instagram page. Trust me, you’ll find some weird shit, some random shit, food, and my cat. Because all lonely late-20’s asshole introverts have a cat, right? Love that pussy. She’s such a bitch. She’s great. But I digress.
At the very niche market we came across real noodles! With ingredients that are normal! Not hydroxinated shit in here. Just real stuff. So I got some, along with these wafer cookies that were SO good! I brought them home, and decided that I would make some noodles for dinner tonight. Let me show you want I came up with.
I know that doesn’t look like much, but it was so awesome! I used a recipe I found on Facebook from Tasty One-Pot. It involves bacon, chicken, and noodles. There was supposed to be spinach in there too, but I decided to ax that because I don’t have any and am too lazy to get some. Let me tell you – it was so good! Not only that, but I had it with some Russian soda. That’s right, soda from Russia. Tonight was a very strange experience. But so worth it.
Let that be my lesson. I am introverted as fuck. But sometimes, you just need a little push to do something that you will remember. I will keep be cherishing these memories I have with her for a long time. It will make it that much sadder when I take her to the airport and watch her leave again. But at least this means that I may get to see her again in my neck of the woods. I want to know what weird markets you all have gone to and the weird shit you got there, so let me know in the Comments.
