I'm A Plant Mommy!

Say hello to my new herb garden at my apartment!

I have two different themed pots: Mexican and Italian. In my Italian pot, I have Italian Flat-Leaf Parsley, Oregano, and Basil. In the Mexican pot, I have Roma Tomatoes (Yes, I know that is technically Italian), Ancho, Jalapeno, and Serano Chilies, and Cilantro. I love having fresh herbs around, but I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival of my tomatoes and chilies.

Missing Chicago

There are many reasons why I miss Chicago. Except for a certain life-long friend, food tops the list of things to miss.
Pepperoni deep-dish delicious, doughy, decadent goodness at Gino's East.

Just a sample of my first Korean food experience at Korean Seoulfood. The chef, Jae Cheon, treated us to Bi Bim Bop, marinated oriental veggies on rice, topped with a fried egg, BBQ Pork, Daen Jang Ji Gae, casserole with beef, tofu, and veggies in soy bean paste broth and Chap Chai, a noodle dish on the right in the picture.

I couldn't resist free promotion!
