Some things last week:
The food was pretty good too. We had tteokbokki, a massive tonkotsu, kimchi fried rice, and their special fries that came with five sauces, hot Cheetos and and egg. In a town where most restaurants close before 10, it’s nice to have a place that’s open past midnight!
Crash Course in Romance is still ongoing! Two episodes are released every weekend so we are making our way there. I’m also watching The Makanai, a Japanese drama about a teenaged girl who works as a cook for a geisha house. Her best friend is training to become a maiko or apprentice geisha.
Still working on The Sixth Extinction
Eating and Drinking:
I had a mochi doughnut for breakfast. Or rather, we cut each of those doughnuts up into quarters so we could each try the different flavours.
I was thinking of making some mashed potatoes, maybe bangers and mash? Maybe another day, I’ll cook some japchae (sweet potato noodles) and make some Korean spinach side dish (an easy way to use up your spinach and it keeps in the fridge for a few days).
Charming As A Verb – Ben Philippe
I feel like I haven’t been reading much
Library Loot (February 8 to 14, 2023)
I finally started The Art of Losing by Alice Zeniter which won the Dublin Literary Award in 2022 and was the most borrowed book from Irish libraries last year. It’s historical fiction set in Algeria and France and really interesting because its about an aspect of their history no one ever talked about. It’s quite a long book though so it’ll probably take me all week to read.
I do enjoy seeing your variety of food options, so incredibly diverse. 😊
Cute cover for Charming is a verb! Enjoy.
I’m really loving The Makanai! It’s been such a nice, cosy show to curl up with.
It really is! I’m rationing the episodes as I don’t want it to end…!
It’s nice to cut up food and share.
