mom was here

yeah so my mom came to visit in may and made us all sorts of nice things to eat. of course i had grand plans of taking her out on the town and treating her to the best restaurants copenhagen has to offer, but she had other ideas. she really just wanted to hang out and cook with me; how can i refuse?! my mom also (predictably) brought a whole second suitcase full of korean and mexican ingredients; including two packs each of bbq eel and soondae!! is that even legal..? i don't know how i managed to squirrel away all of it into the kitchen cabinets, but eventually i made it happen. don't open any of the cabinets. >_>




kimbap



pan-fried zucchini, meat patties, and peppers stuffed with meat


oxtail soup


bbq eel and avocado rolls, chobap/inarizushi



apparently it's a cool new thing to combine chapagetti and neoguri, or so my mom tells me. the result is noodles with a moreish, spicy sauce. it's worth a try! just be sure to drain away the same amount of water as if you were just making the chapagetti. it really was such a breath of fresh air to have her here. i've been living in denmark for 5 years now and i only get to see my family once a year; maybe twice if i'm lucky. though i like living here, i miss them very much.

Being away from family is the hardest thing isn't it? Especially when they make food like this. It all looks amazing! :)

Wow, looks delicious. If you have a kimchi making session again I would like to attend. I'm a Korean adoptee.
