A Comer!!!

So, what has Joo been doing while I've been buried in studying over the past month? Cooking! Deeeeeelicious cooking! I've snapped a few photos of some sample cousine that she's whipped up, but I can assure you there's been a lot more than this! It's been great to have some quality healthy food after all the thick, cheesy, heavy empaƱadas and pizza we've been devouring.

Let's take a look at her process more closely. We begin with the shopping in the marketplace, which Joo has gotten quite good at. Unfortunately, I'm studying during this time, so I don't have any photos of it. My first moment of participation is watching her stroll in the door with bags of fresh produce draped from her wrists...

Next, we have the cooking process itself. This can be quite violent, especially when garlic or onions are involved, in which case Joo takes measures to protect herself...

The massacre is followed by a much more peaceful stage of arrangement by color in order to present the food in the most mouth-watering way possible...

All of this, by the way, is done strictly WITHOUT my observation (with the rare exception when I took these photos). This is because we've become accustomed to a surprise meal pattern where I have absolutely no idea what she is making, except whatever I can deduce through smells and sounds. It makes for a fun game for both us, climaxing in the presentation!

Here are a few more shots of some foods... as you can see, she is working on blending North American, South American, and Asian foods as much as possible :)

Asian veggie babies...

Oreganized chicken...

Elite hamburgers...

Talkdoritang (a Korean spicy chicken soup)

Tomate relleno

Stir fry swimming pool...

Konkaekdong (That really doesn't mean anything, but I bet you thought it was Korean, right?)

In fact, the meals are sooo good, it's often hard to say goodbye to all the food, and so we end up playing with it for awhile...

So, at the end of the day, I'm thankful once again for having such a caring wife! Hallelujah for the honeymoon!
