Here are some random things I’ve been eating lately…
Yesterday I stopped by the Chinese market in my area and bought some steamed buns. 2 plumpy buns for 1,000. They’re probably completely nutritionally vacant and made with less than quality ingredients, but I wanted to try em out. I went through a phase in college when I was addicted to steamed buns from Philly’s Chinatown, so these took me right back. I asked the lady if they contained any eggs, milk, butter, etc, and she said something to the effect of “Ofcourse not!” and looked at me like I was crazy for asking such a thing. hehe…. i had to ask. :)
You know you’re Korean when your mom mails you a giant tub of homemade kimchi. This year, my mom discovered the wonders of Korean postal service and has been taking advantage of it by sending me freshly made kimchi whenever she can. It’s like a Korean version of a care package and practically every other Korean ajoom’ does this. She just wraps tape around the lid, puts it in a plastic bag, and then places that in a sturdy box or insulated cooler box and sends it on its way.
Last but not least, someone requested a birthday cake similar to the one I made here, only bigger. Chocolate cake on the inside with buttercream frosting and chocolate-dipped strawberries.
Speaking of cake and baked goodies… don’t forget about the Bake Sale on May 5th! Let us know you’re coming on the FB event page. :)
