So here we are, on a laid-back weekend. After a full 10 hours of beauty slumber, we were up at 6:30 on a Sunday morning which was technically 7:30. I can’t complain about gaining an extra hour. But I don’t know why they even still bother with daylight saving because quite honestly, all it does is throw everyone’s timing out of whack. For the first few days, at least.
Between the time we’ve been up, we’ve had cereal for breakfast and a banana cake snack. We baked a kick*ss banana cake yesterday afternoon and we’re now enjoying the fruit of our labor. Literally. After one night in the fridge, the cake tastes even better.
Grocery runs are starting to get more exciting. Now that Halloween is over and the holiday season has officially begun, the sampling kiosks are dishing out new varieties of food and snacks to kick off the holiday gluttony. We had a blast flitting from one kiosk to the next sampling everything – croissants with ham and cranberry sauce, chicken sandwich (center), and sausages. Oink!
Some genius made these flavored cheeses – bacon jalapeno and wasabi – so yummy.
Oh and I love, love, love these sugar snap pea chips. Totally addictive.
We took our time going out for lunch at a new (to us) Korean restaurant, had a most leisurely meal of jampong and pork bulgogi rice, and came home to bake chocolate chip cookies. I’m sitting here inhaling the heavenly aroma of our baking and it certainly is starting to feel like fall. I’ll be heading to the kitchen soon to start the prep for tonight’s dinner – yes, bibim naengmyeon (spicy buckwheat noodle) again.
