galloway’s got it

Posted on

trust galloway's to have those silly mung beans i searched for high and low. not only that there's so much more. i've walked past the modest little shop a few times and made as many mental notes to go inside some time. the first time i noticed it i was awash with a with a mixture of surprise and elation. a lot of these small one-offs have been forced to make way for mammoth "super stores", which i often don't find so whoop-de-doo-super in their selection. oh sure, there's a bulk food section in the save-on foods just down the way, but it is decidedly safe and middle of the road, and doesn't dabble in exotics like….mung beans. 

i walked through the door like i was  revisiting the home of an old but not so familiar friend. i revelled in the offerings i discovered in the narrow aisles. i smile and scan the shelves in the diminutive store, looking for nothing in particular, drinking in what i see. they are packed with all manner of everything a person could ever want, bulk, dried and otherwise.  the selection of legumes at the end of my reach on the top shelf is vast. the term dizzying array comes to mind. so overwhelmed am i when presented with the plethora of unusual and inexpensive i buy a lot more than just the humble mung beans. i pack my shopping bag and leave with my bounty, feeling immensely satisfied.

later, when i proudly unpack my finds i think to myself i was so giddy in the discovery of the lowly legume, i chose wrong one. i got green, the recipe calls for yellow. is there a difference? i don't know. i surfed looking for an answer. still unclear. no definitive answer. i surrender to the notion that this is something i will not know without some dedicated research. and what of it. let's just give it a whirl with the green and hope for a happy accident.
