If you know me, you know that I have an unhealthy obsessions with Whole Foods. You also would know then that I have been waiting for Whole Foods Foggy Bottom to open for an entire year. I was finally relieved when they held their grand opening on September 6th. Though I had gone to Whole Foods Foggy Bottom two or three times previously to my excursion this weekend, this was the penultimate food journey, culminating in about 2 hours of shopping and a lot of sighs of exasperation from the BF, who kindly accompanied me.
In my quest to eat better food and save money, I have begun to try to cook in my dorm room, and I had found an amazing recipe for a Picadillo Arepa that I needed to try. So I bought the ingredients and got to work. I think it turned out really well and I am excited to be on this new journey of cooking and baking more often and sharing the results with you all!

My hard work plated and ready to eat.
