LONG TIME, NO YUM

Of course I’ve gone missing again, but I haven’t really stopped eating YUMs…

I had a potluck dinner a few… months back with friends with the theme “&”. Lots of good food! 

Mac & Cheese. Salt & Vinegar Kale Mashed Potatoes. Tomato & Feta Salad. (Not photographed: Bread & Butter. Sweet & Sour Cherry  Pie)

Some more foods:

Chocolate Rice Krispies Treats… but really… a S’mores Rice Krispies Treat with a Graham Cracker Bottom, Chocolate Layer, and Marshmallowy Rice Krispies Treat.

MORE FOOD!

The most incredible steak of my life from Peter Luger’s with my fam bam.

A feast our family friend created for us when we were back in Seattle… and this wasn’t even everything.

I made Beef Bourguignon (Julia Childs steez) and ate it.

MORE YUMS TO COME!

Some foods my friend E and I ate during Hurricane Sandy.

1. Bacon.
2. Pizza (because pizza is still good cold the next day).
3. Fancy spaghetti that Y made.
4. Eggs fried in bacon fat.
5. Salad with celery, tomatoes, and feta.
6. More Bacon.
7. English muffins with peanut butter and apples. 

We were blessed to not have been hit hard, but a lot of other places were. YOU CAN HELP VOLUNTEER OR DONATE! 

I love Ikea.

I love Ikea.

I love breakfast.

My friend =^. .^= had her birthday party down at Whiskey Tavern this past month.

To fully complete the “YOLO” theme, I made a vanilla cake with vanilla frosting… but in a bright pink and coral gradient with hearts all over it.

Then we massacred the cake… And had picklebacks… Put disco light rings next to the cake… Had a cake fight… and then played Jenga and wrote YOLO on them.

HEEHEE.

Happy Birthday =^. .^=!!!! YOLO.

We threw a SURPRISE birthday party for my friend W since she for some reason dislikes birthday celebrations. Hence… SURPRISE.

We got together some of her favorite things in life which include hot dogs, bacon, and cake. We couldn’t bring her cat Lucy Weapons Wong. Oops…

Red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting and decor inspired by this odd future pillow

Thanks to B, we had an amazing feast of hot dogs… more specifically bacon wrapped hot dogs with an assortment of toppings ie sauerkraut, avocados, sour cream, caramelized onions (my fave), and the usual condiments.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY WONG! YUM!

My coworker K is sadly moving on to new pastures. To send her off, I baked Carrot Cake with a Cream Cheese Frosting and encrusted the edge of the cake with crushed pecans.

Grating carrots is hard work… but worth it! 

We’ll miss you K! But I know we’ll see each other again soon with K-town and Karaoke! <3

HOME VISIT PT II

I also went to Dick’s. I miss that place so much. so many good memories there from high school until now! Got the Special burgers and a chocolate shake… 

Home friend C’s mom also made a triple berry cobbler, which was AMAZING. My friend C and I also went to Trophy Cupcakes that I had seen on so many people’s facebooks/instagrams. We got the Chocolate Graham Cracker cupcake and the Elvis which had a Banana pineapple cake with Peanut butter buttercream drizzled with honey.

My family went on a car trip to the Olympic Mountains and on the way there we stopped by a diner called Black Bear Diner and YUM. Giant portions and friendly people. I got Hobo Joe’s Omelet and have already forgotten what everyone else got. I do wish I had enough room to try their pies, but slipped into food coma soon after I finished eating.

The first night my sister and I got to town, we immediately went and got Korean BBQ. It was intense, heavy, and delicious.

And no trip home is complete without some homemade kimchi jjigae.

We did eat at bunch of other places and unfortunately, I did not take picture of everything. But really, how am I supposed to take pictures when there’s all this good food in front of me? I miss home so much already and I am so ready to go back… if my vacation dates get approved… Seattle, you’re still my #1!
