Occasional thoughts from a young adult reveling in the messiness of life.
Sushi is by far my favorite food right now, which is weird considering I never ate sushi before I met the hubbs. But every time we go for sushi (which he’s kind enough to let me indulge in often), I always start with edamame, another food I never ate until recently.
Every time I would order it, I would think to myself: this can’t be THAT hard to make – it’s just soy beans and salt. And so, I added it to my list of “12 Things in 2012.” One weekend, determined to knock it off the list, I Googled “how to make edamame,” and it seemed simple enough. I picked up a bag of frozen edamame at the local grocery store, boiled a pot of water, dropped them in the boiling water, strained them five minutes later and added a touch of salt. Voila! It really was that easy. And so, another thing comes off the list.
