Every Saturday night Hubby and I have date night. Most of the time we have double date night with our good buddies pictured below. This Saturday we took them to our favorite little Indian restaurant Jtoyi, after dinner we roamed around and found a cute little Christmas market, drank coffee from Indonesia, gluvine that was HORRIBLE and took lots of fun pictures.
Serious cuteness and unknowingly having a hot chocolate mustache.
Homemade Hot Chocolate:
2 cups milk (I use Almond)
1/2 cup chocolate chips (I use Enjoy Life mega chunks)
Start on variable 1 on Vitamix increase slowly to 10 - let her go for about 5 minutes or until steam is escaping from the top!
Parking in Korea is like no other and Koreans are MASTER parkers.
You can pretty much park anywhere as long as you leave your phone number on the dash of your car so if you block someone in they can call you to come move your car. You can park on sidewalks, you can double and triple park. We have even parked on the side of the highway near Jamsil stadium because there were no parking spots left. You can block people in with no worries at all. If you don't want to be bothered with a phone call you can even leave your keys in your car and or put your car in neutral so others can move your car for you.
This place is crazy.
My van is the red one...most cars in Korea are black, white or gray so it is always easy to find my car.
The white car in front of my car is not in a parking spot and as you will notice my minivan is too big for most parking spots here.
I know...it's not what you were expecting.
The sad truth is on Day 48 the only pictures I took were of food - and not very good pictures at that.
This was a new recipe for chicken nuggets I was trying out for the kids after school snack. They didn't go over very well with the kids, but I loved them.
Preheat oven to 400
3-4 boneless skinless chicken breast
2 eggs - scrambled in a shallow dish
salt & pepper
2 cups of unsweetened coconut
Cut chicken into bite size pieces
Sprinkle with seasonings
Dip in egg
Coat with coconut
Place on a cookie sheet
Bake for 6 minutes, flip nuggets over and bake for 6 more minutes. (Give or take a few depending on how big your nuggets are.)
It's almost time to play "Where in the World is Trish"!
On Christmas Eve we will be traveling to an undisclosed location.
We will need these:
You have to give it up for our neighbors.
They are Navy - that is not what you giving it up for - you are giving it up because I totally harassed them during the Yongsan version of the Army/Navy football game (63-0) and they took it so well knowing their time would come and when it did, it would count more. (Even though I was hoping against hope.....)
Anyway, after the REAL Army/Navy game on Sunday morning (your Saturday afternoon if you live in the states) someone rang our doorbell and when we answered this is what we saw:
There is always next year....right?
That neighbor also felt the need to harass Hubby a bit more by throwing in how the Broncos (donkeys) lost last week as well.....
Saturday night in Seoul:
We went to a crazy fun party at a good friends house, it was called "Reindeer Games".
Basically a scavenger hunt of sorts where you break up into random teams and are sent out into the city for 2 hours trying to complete 4 pages worth of items all worth varying points.
The picture below was a "team picture".... each team had to create a unique picture worth 200 points.
This is what our team came up with, but in the end we didn't get the points, this picture got us 2nd place with 0 points, but it was fun nonetheless.
This is so much more than 'just a waffle'.
This reminds me of 'home', my mom, my siblings, the place I married the love of my life & the place 2 of our babies were born. This reminds me of life long friends, a place of heartache, a place of many, many blessings. This remind me of my good friend Tracey...I can't make waffles without thinking of her. It reminds me of Janice, she gave me the recipe to make this GLUTEN free delicious waffle. True story, gluten free and delicious. And, it reminds me of you. :o)
Most of the time I run off post. I like it, I see all kinds of funky things. Today this struck me as extremely odd....typically I wouldn't pay too much notice to drying fish, but this was at the end of my run, back in my neighborhood - ON POST!
They had 2 lines worth of fish drying.
Am I insane? Have I lost my mind? After thinking long and hard about it (OK, really I only thought about it for about 12 hours) I just committed to doing a photo a day for a year - a 365 'they' call it. This is going to be SUPER HARD for me. Not the photo part, but the editing part. I mean you guys KNOW how far behind I am. A photo a day - that doesn't sound like much, but in reality, who are we kidding? Anyway I'm going to TRY to post each day, but there will be times I might be MIA for a couple of days, just bear with me and I will catch up.
