On Saturday, the weather was psychotic. I'm not joking. It was about 71 when I left the house and then lightning came along with torrential rains. But in the city, it was still fairly warm. Some friends and I went to Kuma's Corner. I forgot my camera... but the other half of my burger awaits. Next time, I hope to split a burger and try their make-your-own mac and cheese. I saw some other patrons enjoying their mac and cheese and it looked delicious. Of course, I forgot my camera, but we were all stuffed from our half burgers. The staff there is a lot of fun and we never had to ask for a refill. It's a bit small so if you plan on going, try an odd time or hope for the best and get there early to wait in line.
After lunch, we headed back to the burbs and in the span of 30 minutes, it started pouring rain, dropped about 15 degrees, the sun peeked out for a few minutes and then proceeded to stay cold and dreary.
On Sunday, some plans changed and so I made some Korean soup at home for lunch. I'm big on freezing a stockpile of things when I get the chance because I like the quick and easy meal. So I tend to buy a bunch of meat - this time it was boneless short ribs and boiled it for a few hours. Once the soup-base is flavorful enough, I divide the soup into several tupperware containers and freeze until needed. Since the weather stayed cold until early afternoon, this was a stomach-warming dish : perfect for another dreary morning.
dduk-gook: Korean rice cake soup with a fried no-yolk egg + laver + green onions + sesame seeds. You usually eat this on New Year's day to grow a year older... maybe if I eat enough of it, it'll reverse time.
Dessert is a must these days... so I made a short stop to a local bakery and picked up some lemon pasteries. This one has to be my favorite there. I can't get enough of it!
