While we were home we craved Korean rice. No big surprise there, huh? I mean if you think about it…we eat it almost everyday with one of our meals. Hopefully the ladies from work are not reading this, ha-ha! Or else right about now I’d be hearing a big TOLD YOU SO! Mind you these are the same ladies who were absolutely baffled at the fact that Mr. B and I could not get rice at every restaurant in the US. Gosh, how can you not just love them?
My sister in-law loved a Korean restaurant that she tried out some time awhile back. She asked if there were anyway to show her or teach her about Korean cuisine. Mr. B jumped at this opportunity!
This would usually be an easy task, however we are from central PA where there is really no large city for miles in either direction. Trying to cook up some Korean food posed a bit of a snag. No H-mart or Lotte Mart… We really had to think outside of the box and imprivise a bit. A little Korean-American fusion. It was fun!
“Are you trying to burn the baby out?” My sister in-law commenting on all the wasabi that Mr. B had in his soy sauce and forgot to mention to her before she took a nice dip. We forgot not everyone likes the feeling of burning your nose off. Oopsie.. sorry baby A
I love the next few photos. My father in-law was such a wonderful sport. He rolled his own kimbop and ate it too. Now the chopsticks on the other hand…. that was a different story. he-he-he. Just needs a wee bit of practice before he comes for a visit.
So far its been a crazy busy week, I cannot believe that we are already on day three of our visit home. I knew once we’d get home the hands on the clock would just spin forward ever so quickly. Today we did all sorts of fun little things. We baked raisin cookies, strolled around Giant, and grabbed a bite to eat at Panera Bread.
After baking cookies, we decided to go for a stroll around Giant. Yes, we are really odd and have enjoyed “strolling” around Wal-Mart, Target, Sam’s Club, Heimbach’s, and no trip would be complete without including our local Giant grocery store. Hmmm maybe we can squeeze in a Wegmans too?
Goodness, endless amounts of decisions and options. The experience was almost overwhelming! I found myself wanting to read every single item in the Organic section. It’s incredible how much we take for granted with the endless amounts of selections and sales on food in the US. We are so lucky to be able to just purchase endless amount of stuff. In the end it always leaves me with the thoughts of, do we really need all of this stuff?
We’ve been Panera Bread enthusiast for quite sometime now. The smell of freshly baked bread, the delicious soups, the free wifi, the bakery-cafe atmosphere. We were absolutely delighted to see that they had opened in our hometown while we had been away. I knew we’d have to stop in and grab some lunch sometime while running around. Today just happened to be that day!
Have you ever ate at Panera Bread? What is your favorite thing to order? I think mine is now the Vegetarian garden vegetable with pesto. In the mood for soup? You’ve got to try it out!
