Confessions of a Bayou Foodie
I love food. Unfortunately, it loves me back by aiding me in buying larger pants sizes. In my quest to find yummy, fulfilling foods , I sometimes visit my local Asian market. I could spend hours just reading labels and trying to figure ways to use all of those exotic sauces made with fish and other ingredients I have never heard of. On today's visit, I got some Shirataki noodles. They are made from soy and yam flour and are very low in calories and carbs. I will let you know what I decide to do with them. I also got some fermented black beans. I had these on my last visit to Dallas at the ever famous Pei Wei restaurant. They were cooked in some sort of meat dish. Since I am an avid black bean fan (much to my neighbor's aversion) I figured, what could be the risk? Stay tuned for a full report on my Asian/Cajun experiment..
