I have been wanting to make quinoa lately, so I had planned to go buy some at Trader Joe's this week. But then I saw a deal on livingsocial.com for 20 dollars of groceries for 10 dollars at Whole Foods! It was kismet.
So yesterday I went to spend my 20 dollars at Whole Foods. I went to the one in Beverly Hills, and apparently it is like the biggest one there is. It was so awesome! They had so much cool food, and I was basically getting everything 50% off (since I paid 10 dollars for 20 dollars of groceries.)
They had every grain, seed, nut, and type of flour you can imagine in the giant bins, and you could buy as much or as little as you wanted. I got forbidden rice (cool name, huh?), quinoa (the grain that started this whole adventure), and pumpkin seeds (because they are delicious.)
I also bought a few other things. Here are some of them.
1. Glenn loves peanut sauce. So do I. And I thought this looked delicious and similar to peanut sauce.
2. If you know me at all, you know I couldn't pass up a pint of multi-colored, baby heirloom tomatoes.
3. My groceries only added up to 19 dollars. This chocolate was by the register and it cost 1 dollar.
My mom is coming to visit next week! I am going to save some of the cool stuff I got to cook when she is here. Like the Forbidden Rice.
