New York Food Adventures Pt. I (Supermarket and Groceries)


Although I cherish my hometown in the Ruhr, I am finding New York quite appealing, too. I love travelling in general, and going to the supermarket in a foreign country is definitely a highlight for me. ^^ All of these exciting new things! (And sometimes the shock of how expensive some stuff is.) So this blog post is about my food and supermarket adventures. (Restaurant adventures to be in a seperate post.)

Ich liebe ja meine Heimatstadt im Ruhrpott, aber ich mag New York bisher auch ganz gerne. Ich liebe es ja generell zu reisen und in einem fremden Land in einen Supermarkt zu gehen ist für mich immer ein Highlight. ^^ All diese neuen aufregenden Dinge! (Und manchmal der Schock wie teuer einige Sachen sind.) Dieser Blog ist also über meine Essens- und Supermarktabenteuer. (Restaurantabenteuer gibt's in einem separaten Post.)

Easy: Creamy Spinach with Chickpeas and Peanuts

Deutsche Übersetzung unter dem englischen Rezept!

So, I am not in my usual kitchen environment. Instead of enjoying the beautiful Ruhrgebiet, I am in New York City! Only temporarily, though. I am still settling in and finding my way around, particularly in the supermarkets, but I am glad to have access to a kitchen in the apartment in which I'm subletting a room. I had originally intended to make something along the lines of my world famous (ok, it's not... yet!) Sesame Spinach, but since I couldn't find any sesame seeds, I had to come up with something else. And I like what happened as I threw together my very, very limited selection of food items. Getting set up in a kitchen without having anything in the pantry or fridge whatsoever is quite the challenge. But it worked! :D
