After the feeding frenzy at my neighbor’s house last night, I was going to "be good" today. But tonight I had agreed to be a pretend photographer at the 80th birthday party of a friend’s father. The meal was Korean, and if you know anything about Korean dinners, there is a LOT of food. I think there were like 10 courses. I think I’ve found my people. Here is some of what I ate.
Okay, I didn’t eat this, but isn’t it pretty? (It’s octopus. And I’m not sure why I couldn’t bring myself to eat it when I have no problem eating calamari or lobster or shrimp. But I didn’t.) I STAND CORRECTED. It’s JELLYFISH, y’all.
These were FABULOUS. I didn’t want to be piggy, so I didn’t help myself to seconds, but this was my favorite part of the meal. I’m not sure what they all were — some sort of fried pancake made of fish or veggies or something. YUM SCRUM.
I tried mussels (or are they oysters? I’m so cultured.) for the first time. They were quite good. Much better than I expected.
I wouldn’t touch this raw fish with a 10-foot pole, but isn’t the plate purty?
This shrimp was DIVINE.
I don’t know what this was called, but it was quite tasty, despite the presentation. I didn’t really need to be reminded where the meat came from.
This salmon was my main course. By the time it came, I was full. But I still ate almost the whole thing.
I actually passed up dessert. That’s how full I was.
I SHOULD have stopped there, but soon after I got home, my neighbor came over bearing 2 bags of fresh donuts from the local fair. She said something about breakfast, but Hub and I wasted no time diving right in. Well, we waited until the kids were upstairs so we didn’t have to share. Don’t worry. We left enough for breakfast. I should take a picture, but I’m done being the photographer for the day.
There are pecan squares in my fridge, left over from last night. I think they might be lonely. Maybe I should bring them in here to keep them company.
