Korean Cooking

This afternoon, I made the Kimchi Jingae recipe that I talked about yesturday and a batch of Jop Jae noodles. The noodles take about an hour to make since the meat has to marinade in the fridge for a half hour. Both recipes take similar ingredients, so I was able to chop everything up and the just split them between recipes. We also had some extra tofu left and Liam wanted to eat some, I was able to toss together a sauce like they use in Japan with cold tofu and serve it to the family. Whenever the boys see me eating with chopsticks, they go to the drawer and grab out their own sets to eat with. Liam eats by stabbing the food. During dinner, he would take the noodles and dip them in the soup and pretend he was fishing. Christian would only eat noodles and rice and he kept begging for milk since he thought the noodles were so "spicy". (they were not) They finished the meal with some pineapple sorbet we made in the ice cream ball on Saturday.
This morning at 2:00 am, Liam came into our bedroom. I woke up and told him he needed to go back to bed. He said kiss, so I kissed him on the head and then he left our room and went back to bed. I assume he was sleep walking. I, however, did not fall back asleep for two hours and I had to work this morning. David had the day off, so I was able to grab a little nap after work.
Since today is the first day of September...there is a new Collab kit at Elemental Scraps. Sadie's Parlour. It is great for vintage photos. I have an envelope of vintage photos from my mother's relatives. I never met any of these people, but each picture has a story on the back. I also have my mother's wedding book which has a family tree in it. I might be able figure it out.
This Layout features a photo I took of Chistian and his foster mother on our first meeting in Korea. I also used a free template by Chrissy W. This is also my layout for the Font Jaunt that I am hosting at Elemental Scraps.
