i’m back to food-logging today…but i’m going to post all of today’s meals at once tonight. so for now, here are some more meals from cali. i think all i did on my stay there was eat, eat eat.
my mom only cooks a full meal a couple times a week but when she does, there is always a soup or stew involved.
two popular korean jigaes (stews):
dwen-jang jigae: soybean paste stew (like a stronger, thicker miso paste) with tofu mushrooms, bean sprouts, zucchini, and seaweed.
kimchi jigae: kimchi, tofu, mushrooms, and pork.
that’s a huge-ass mushroom slice in the bowl.
i told my mom i was craving shrimpies, and she taught me a new way to prepare shrimp.
isn’t that cool? you basically just cook the shrimp on heated salt…you can do this on a skillet in the oven or in a sturdy pot on the stove top. no oil necessary and the shrimp is so tender and lightly flavored with the salt. yum!
see ya again tonight!
