More cooking, more mini pancakes… and why all the mini pancakes

Summer salad: cukes, fake crab, thread scallions, reconstituted seaweed, plus a vinegar dressing and sesame seeds. This is super Korean composition


Fish cake soup: fish cake balls, turnip/daikon, thread scallions plus mushroom flavor packet. 


More mini pancakes!! Turnip/daikon (the local veg is 무– a cross between turnip and daikon and it is among my favorite vegetables), thread scallions, fake crab, and barter 


So why all the mini pancakes? I still find it hard to eat sometimes. I’d taken to eating ice cream during those time (bc Korean ice cream is delicious! Hah NYC good snobs, ice cream in NYC never called to me like ice cream here). But almost a decade of minima dairy consumption and I developed lactose intolerance 😞. And really it doesn’t offer that much in he way of calories and nutrition. 

But I can always eat 전. Even the ones that aren’t that good, I will still eat them.  Case in point: the tofu 전 I made a few days ago. They were bland and boring… and I still ate them. I know how to deal with my reduced appetite– eat what I can eat. Most of the ones I cook have vegs in them so they have some nutrition. I also started taking vitamins today (my mother gave them to me). 

So if I’m honest, I will likely eat just 2-3 of these 전 tonight and that’s okay. They will solve the problem of “what to eat” tomorrow. Which is important bc I have a job interview tm!
