I decided to buy some farro - my new favorite grain - and saw it in the bulk food section. Hurray I said to myself.
Poured my farro into the bag, did the scale, printed the bar code and off to the register I went.
|I did it, guys!|
|LA DE DA - I'm going to the kitchen to make more food. Nothing bad will happen!|
How much farro do I have? I need to know this so I know how much water to boil?
I poured the remaining farro into a measuring cup and it was as if the lord blessed that bowl and said "you shall have exactly one cup for easy math to know how much water to boil"
|And it was done.|
What's this? Husband is calling? Well I should certainly answer.
"BLAH BLAH BLAH" says the husband
"Is that right?" says me, "hey's what's that?"
Oh gross, I saw a bug in the bowl. Must have flown from somewhere in the room to enjoy my nice bowl of farro. Understandable. I'll shoo it away.
What the mother fucking fuck is this?
CAN YOU SEE THIS?
My farro was INFESTED.
The insect is a granary weevil. My food was INFESTED. I could easily see 5 from looking at the bowl without much inspection. They were just crawling all around.
AND I FREAKING ATE THEM A FEW DAYS BEFORE.
Check your bulk food before preparing it. ALWAYS.
Farro is still delicious, folks. I definitely recommend it. But just... make sure the bugs aren't with it.
