My Dirty Little Secret
Do you remember Monica?
Who am I kidding? Of course you do.
What I really want to know is, do you remember Monica’s dirty little secret?
Not ringing a bell? Watch the video below!
Now do you remember?
Monica had a “secret closet”. That was her dirty little secret. Literally. It was a dirty closet.
Monica was a neat freak, much like myself, and I have to admit…
I too have a dirty little secret very similar to Monica.
I have a dirty little cupboard.
A cupboard I won’t let guests open…
A cupboard that horrifies my boyfriend because cans of beans fall out every time the door opens…
A cupboard that gives me an instant headache every time I look into it…
A cupboard that I won’t even reveal a picture of on my blog…
A cupboard that holds so many contents that I don’t know how I will ever finish all of them before they expire.
Luckily, most of the contents within this scary cupboard of mine are numerous types of grains, cereals, pastas, and beans.
Why am I sharing this with you? Well, I’ve started an adventure – a challenge if you will.
I challenge myself not to buy any more grains until I get through the ones in this cupboard.
Since starting this challenge, I’ve already introduced my taste buds to two new-to-me grains (amaranth and millet), but there is so many more to be tested and tried!
I’ve ran out of all of my quinoa after devouring endless bowls of whipped cottage cheese and quinoa, so now I’m using amaranth instead, but I’m almost out of that, too.
I cooked millet for the first time a few days ago, but found it quite dry, so I am experimenting with it now. I’ve been soaking the grain for over 24 hours now and plan on dehydrating it later on today to make my own “millet version” of Gena’s buckwheaties (which I love!)
Once I run out of millet and amaranth, I plan to move on to another grain taking up space in my cupboard. I have so many options! Buckwheat, kamut, hard winter wheat, red rice, and the list goes on! The possibilities are seriously endless, so I need your help!
