My New Favorite Snack

Call me crazy, but I am all about seaweed these days.  I can't ever get enough!  When Alice, an exchange student from Korea, came to our house and brought gim with her, I was more than skeptical.  Little did I know, this stuff is life changing!

I'll have it on my rice any time and as much as I can get.  I was in a new grocery store today and saw it in little packages.  I bought about $1.50 worth to try it out on my own (in my home!), and ended up putting it in my dinner which I never would have thoughts as seaweed friendly before: pasta, chicken, and onions in a coconut milk, butter, and lemon sauce.  The combination was delicious.  After dinner, I ate a whole 'nother package straight.  Salty, crunchy, ocean-y, and unfortunately irresistible.  I'll be pumping in the water to try and offset this new rise in sodium intake for sure.

Would you ever try eat seaweed?  If I sent you some, would you try it?  Seriously, who wants some?

    I thought I was the only one touting the great qualities of seaweed. I can also eat entire packages of the stuff.

    I feel like I'm spamming your blog with comments now. I'll show myself out, thanks.

    I love that stuff, but I have no idea where to get it here. Is it native to Korea? Anyways, it's wonderful and I'm glad you've discovered it.


  3. That recipe sound great! You don't just eat the seaweed plain, though, do you? That sounds like a bit much...

  4. Annalise, I'm pretty sure my family's gotten it at Wal-Mart before in our international section. I do know that it will be stocked in any Asian food marts for sure.

    Scout, I'm afraid I just finished eating a whole pack of it straight. I couldn't have done it a year ago, but I'm such a fan now, I'd try it with ice cream.
