seaweed + rice = love.

I have never met any korean folks that doesn't like salted seaweed (gim) with rice. It's like...the BEST stuff out there. Even the most whitest koreans I know dig this super simple + humble pairing. I have fond memories of myself as an eight year old, making salted gim (seaweed) with rice for my 4 yr old sister and we'd eat as many as we could while watching Tom & Jerry until our mum came home from work. Fast forward to college, I have memories of making this for my, then boyfriend (now husband), in my dorm room when our meal points for the cafeteria ran out. And this morning, I checked our bank account and crap, realized I went a bit overboard in our monthly budget...so, this called for modest yet very delicious seaweed and rice meal =). Sucks living off a resident salary, especially when he gets paid only once a month.
