To say that I’m a sucker for marketing would be an understatement. I am a marketer’s dream. I buy things on spur of the moment desires. I see what she has, I want it, I buy it (well, within reason). Sometimes, I even buy stuff because I see the package and I like the package. I don’t even know WTF is inside! It’s ridiculous. So you can imagine how difficult it is for me to have a constant stream of can’t-live-without items flowing through my social media channels and even worse, must-have-right-now foods.
I’m constantly crushing hard on what everyone else is having, while I half heartedly tuck into my own meal (I know, first world problems). But occasionally, I have the ingredients at home to make the same thing and voilà! Instant gratification to the max.
Earlier this week, Rosa tweeted her kimchijeon lunch. And then guess what I had for lunch! Luckily, I had some kimchi in the fridge (since I discovered the kimchi and quinoa golden combination) and everything else you need is stock standard pantry stuff.
I love it when a plan comes together!
