inexpensive snack

rye bread and aduki beans

If you're on a low budget and wish to eat healthy, beans and spaghetti are about as cheap as it gets, plus a loaf of bread on the side. Lohbado bought rye bread for $ 3.50 at a Russian grocery store called Krazy Kris on Van Horne. Lohbado put the bread in the freezer compartment of the fridge to keep it fresh all week. When wishing to eat bread, take it from the freezer, break off a couple slices and toast them. Add aduki beans and you have a very economical snack.

To cook aduki beans, soak them about 8 hours, then toss the water. Put them in a pot of water. Bring them to a boil then simmer for about 45 minutes, then drain the water and eat them. That's how Lohbado does it. Soaking and proper cooking makes them easier to digest. Maybe it could take a week or so to get used to a daily diet of beans. Eventually, the digestive tract adapts and flatulence is not such an issue. Flatulence, in Lohbado's experience, was only a problem with undercooked beans.

Lohbado also watched a Bunuel classic movie Viridiana. He started working on a movie review. It's so full of details, it's best to watch it more than once. In the movie, there's a banquet scene. A group of misfits take over the house and wreak havoc with plenty of food and drink while the estate owners are away. There's even a moment when they pose like in the Leonardo da Vinci last supper painting for a playful woman who provides a surprising exposure.
