The diary entries of a little girl in her 30s! ~ Part 2 - Page 676  

post #10126 of 21760
Muppet you are really tempting me with the 335. I am am more attracted to slow burners as wowers tend to disappoint in the majority of cases. Just like with music albums...just a few great albums wow you from the start and keep wowing you more on the long run. Sorry for the liberal use of this barbarism.

Well someone's se5 are ready ! And someone's wife se3a are ready too. But damn I have to have them shipped to France and wait for my parents to come to.China in 15 days.

I got confused between Marmite and Vegemite. I think the latter is the superior one. Both my parents went to Australia back when they were my current age for their university studies. Loved Vegemite when I forced myself a full toast (with honey, and a brand that they used when their still there too. Don't remember what it is though, but it's the one with the chubby bee) when I was around 12 y.o. Now I can go on with Vegemite on toast if need be and be absolutely content.

It's currently gray, bleak, and stormy. It was nice and sunny just the other day. Gotta love that tsundere weather in STL man. All this soul/southern food talk makes me hungry. Stuff'll take precious months off of your life, but damn is it good

I drove down to watch the Boston Marathon a few years ago.  Def one of the coolest (and busiest, from a pedestrian traffic point of view) events I've ever seen.

 

I'm already sad and don't really know what happened yet.

post #10134 of 21760

I'm late! Just clicked on the link - busy day, yesterday, and simply wasn't aware of much happening in the world. Sad indeed. This is the type of event that can be uplifting to so many!

Well, we also thought of fun names like: The Head Society. We were wondering what kind of people would turn up to a meeting for that.

I think Marmite is derived from some animal product whereas Vegemite is just made from yeast. I know what honey you are talking about but sadly the name escapes me too. All I can think of is the Simpsons.

I've been so busy today I didn't know about the marathon incident until just now. Vuroth, keep your head down stay safe and God speed my friend.

So, a buddy of mine and I were doing a little shopping at a Korean market the other day.  As we're strolling our cart through the produce section, we begin to notice a pronounced discrepancy between the prices of raw materials (cheap) and prepared dishes at a restaurant (pricey - at least at a good place).  We're throwing out theories left and right, and finally settle upon one reasonable theory as to why this might be so:  free Ban Chan.

 

 

 

For those that don't get to eat a lot of Korean cuisine, any given meal is typically served with a bevy of side dishes collectively known as Ban Chan.  These Ban Chan are all free (in that there is no extra charge) and diners are able to request as many helpings as they like (within reason).  The Ban Chan can range from simple kimchi to something far more exotic - like marinated raw crab (yum!) or roasted Croaker (equally yum!).

 

So regardless of what one might order (mixed meat Sul Lung Tang being my personal favorite), one will get to sample quite a range of flavors and probably not leave the establishment hungry.  What's my point in bringing all this up?  I have none.  I just wanted to talk about Ban Chan as I just got done whipping up a batch of Kong Na Mul (chilled bean sprouts in sesame oil w/green onions).

 


 

Also, flat metal chopsticks piss me off.  I don't care if the King used to use them, they're the devil's work I tell ya.

I love Ban Chan! I didn't know they had a name. They just call them side dishes in the korean restaurants here. I've often felt that the price of the side dishes is built into the price of all the other mains on the menu. That often means though my family will order what we regard is a normal amount of food, and then forget about the side dishes and end up ordering way too much. That said it feels odd just ordering one bibimbap between two people and then gorging on side dishes.
