My sad Kitchen

My stocked pantry is in such a sad state. You know how I know this??? We don't even own a drop of soy sauce. I know... cause I have looked since lately I have been craving fried rice.... and an essential ingredient in fried rice is well soy sauce.

So then I thought, well, how is it made??? The wikpedia says that it is fermented soy beans and other stuff, well sorry, if I am out of soy sauce I am surely out of soy beans especially the fermented kind.

So I went next door to the neighbor and borrowed a kinda soy sauce. It was a healthier version of soy sause that they used for cooking things such as stirfry, but it worked just as well. I don't think I will go buy it to use on a regular basis, but it was much better than having to run up to the store last minute. I assure you though that the soy sauce has made it onto the grocery list for next week...

My kitchen gets like that sometimes too! Sometimes I go on shopping strikes and refuse to buy anything but milk for a couple of weeks. At the end of that time, things are usually not pretty.

Soy sauce is a staple in this house. And rice. If we are ever without either an emergency trip is immediately made to the Korean food store where Del stocks up like there's no tomorrow. I think that at any given time we have no less than three or four bottles of soy sauce in this house. So, if we ever live next door to you, you can borrow ours when you run out.
