I like to try to get a picture with the kids on my birthday. This doesn't always work so well, but these turned out pretty cute.
We went down to O Bok Jip in Lakewood for dinner, and I got some kimchi jjigae. It was not the best jjigae I've had, but it was okay. But there was quite a lot of it so I ended up taking the rest of it home and having the leftovers for lunch the next day, and it was suddenly fabulous. That's the beauty of jjigae--it's better the next day. I was familiar with the phenomenon, but was somewhat surprised at the magnitude of improvement.
Here's my post-birthday lunch! Day-old kimchi jjigae, (new) rice, and kim. Andy was excited about the rice and kim. I gave him a few dribbles of jjigae broth on his rice, too.
Andy sneaks some kim. He would just eat the whole package plain if I let him.
I got this pan for my birthday. It's for making goldfish-shaped waffle-cakes. (Korean boong-o bbang.) Amanda got one, and when I saw it I said, "I must have one of those!" (Got mine from Amazon. Amazon thinks it's Japanese, even though it's got Korean all over it. Funny.)
I still haven't tried it but I will post pictures when I do!
