We're not totally unpacked yet, and I can't find my camera battery charger anywhere! So for now, photos taken with Joe's phone will have to suffice.
Hey, remember when I used to cook? One thing I've been really enjoying now that I'm in Iowa is cooking. I love to cook. Sadly, I never had much time to do that in New York. There's a great food co-op here, an awesome farmer's market, and three or four different Asian groceries. Last night I thought I'd take advantage and finally cook something from Jeana Sohn's food blog Bap Story.
I ended up making the kimchi fried rice, and it was delicious. Joe's not a big kimchi fan, but he loved it and went back for seconds. It was even better with a cold glass of Sapporo beer. If you want to make this recipe, I have to warn you--it's kinda spicy. Also, kimchi is a bit of an acquired taste. Years ago when I worked at a Korean restaurant with my sister we became obsessed with Korean food, but it took awhile to get used to. We were friends with the owners of the restaurant, and they taught us some basic Korean recipes. It's been such a long time since I've made any Korean food that it was nice to have something a little different for dinner.
