I spent most of my day in meetings. But since that’s boring to talk about, I’ll return to one of my favorite subjects:
I tried something today that was jellied and made of acorns and came in long strips in my bowl. They gelatinous acorn strips had an nice, nutty flavor, but I couldn’t cope with the texture and mostly ate around them. Which was fine, because the rest of my lunch was great. Vegetarian enough for Buddhist monks, the dish was a mildly spicy broth sprinkled with shredded carrots, cucumber, seaweed, tiny mushrooms, and other things. I also got tiny bowls of rice and kimchee. Yum. I could get used to Korean food. I think it gets a bad rap.
Then again, there *was* that place in the food court selling pig intestines. That scared me.
It’s time for dinner. Hopefully without intestines.
