Hi folks! Quick update for a late Sunday night. I’ve had quite a day. I headed to work to work on my paper. It was a lot of resting as opposed to writing but I feel a little bit better about the paper. I worked on my outline a bit so I have more of a direction of what to write. I really think this paper is going to come down to the wire and that’s terrible. Anyway, instead of flash drives, I send myself a copy of my paper on e-mail so I can’t lose it. Guess what I ended up doing? It was a nightmare come true, I sent the e-mail to a mailing list rather than to myself. I don’t even know how that happened! The e-mail address is nowhere near how my e-mail is spelled and it wasn’t like I was rushing to get this done. Sheesh. Luckily the mailing list is very small and I was notified by one of them tonight that I had done it. I immediately wrote back to everyone and apologized and asked them to delete it. There’s nothing bad in my e-mail or draft, just bad that I sent it to them!
Anyway, tonight I started prepping food for this week’s lunches. I was ENTIRELY too ambitious. I got a bag of that fake meat to hydrate and I wanted to try my hand at seasoning it with kalbi sauce to create a bibimbap. Well bibimbap includes a LOT of vegetables. I spent so much time slicing up vegetables and seasoning them to cook, it was crazy.
The meat came out okay but I think it got seasoned TOO much. I also wanted to make kimchee gyoza. I seriously am nuts. I made those by hand and cooked them too. I think the cooking and prep took about 3-4 hours tonight. I am tired. I give Korean people a lot of credit for their dishes, nothing but respect. So how am I going to leave this post? McDonald’s French Fries. Those things are already so good but I heard they had this shake and season thing right now so I had to try it!
It comes with it’s very own “shake” bag with the seasoning you choose inside. It’s very easy to do and the seasoning packets really latch onto the fries!
Here are the two seasonings we have in Hawaii. My favorite? I like the garlic parmesan over the zesty ranch. I definitely would like to get it again before it goes away! It’s for a limited time only. I think I heard Japan has a nori flavor. Of course they do, we need that here! Anyway, the seasoning comes free with an order of medium or large fries…or of course with the value meals. When I ordered it, I asked for the seasoning specifically. They don’t come automatically with the fries so make sure you ask!
Hey thanks for the headup on the fries. I was wondering if they tasted any better cuz I am absolutely over the moon over their regular fries. I love the super hot, tongue burning fresh fries da best.
Yes, asian food is mostly quick cooking cuz gots to chop and dice so much before hand.
Hi N! I tried it again with my friend and she is also a big fan of their regular fries and she enjoyed them! I hope you get to give it a try!
And you are totally right. Actual Chinese cooking is so quick but the prep work is crazy!
BTW I went to COSTCO and they had the beets. Yay! Nice not to deal with all the red staining AND I can eat just a small one since they’re packed individually. I joined COSTCO just to get the beets but I’m finding it’s paying off more than the Sam’s card I had esp. with the rail construction. i only went to Sam’s once. Now I go weekly to COSTCO. Thanks for the great advice.
That’s great N! So glad you joined Costco! Even if it was for beets but I support Costco more because they treat their employees right and pay a good wage. I live very close to Costco so it’s very convenient.
