I don't think I've ever had Korean food of any kind.

I just attempted to make Somloi Galuska, my favourite Hungarian dessert, to serve to people tomorrow. The best one I had during the recent trip to Hungary was actually a bit different from the standard type, mostly in that it had a lot more custard, so that's what I tried to go for. I'm a bit worried about how it's going to turn out; the sponge cake has a very tough texture and I fear that it's basically going to taste like mediocre sponge cake mixed with vanilla pudding and a bit of rum flavour. Which, granted, is pretty much exactly what it is. (There'll be chocolate sauce as well, but I'll make that tomorrow.) I hope magic will happen overnight.

The only kimchi-heavy food I've been blown away with was some beef-kimchi ramen I had at a Japanese place in Minneapolis. 

There is an awesome looking Korean grocery on Brunswick street in Melbourne that has this little cartoon cabbage/kimchi person as their logo.  I would eat Korean more often, but my wife is vegetarian and not fond of Korean veg options.

Hmmm. There's a lot of delicious things here, but they're all from different places... Let me ruminate

So I'm feeling extremely lazy and looking at grubhub and considering getting this:

"Pig in the Blanket Pizza": 12" individual pizza stuffed with cream and goat cheese, prosciutto, arugula, and truffle oil

I have had the misconception for the last three weeks that a kilogram was roughly equivalent to a pound. However, I guess there are like 2.2 kilograms in a pound, and suddenly food seems much more reasonably priced. I thought fish was beyond my means, but it turns out that a pound of Tasmanian salmon is only $11 or so, which is about what you'd pay back in the states for a nice piece of fish. Vegetables seem more reasonable as well.

We live about a 10 minute walk away from a huge vegetable/meat/fish/junk market, and the asians have some crazy shit for sale, like 50 varieties of asian greens, strange fruits like jackfruit, passionfruit, and durian, bitter melon, and other things that I have no name for. I picked up a squash (which Aussies call pumpkins, no matter what variety of squash it is), multi-colored sweet potatoes (red/orange and purple, respectively), and brussels sprouts to go with the salmon tonight.  Can't wait to get down with some Omega 3s.

I'm getting there with celsius--so far I have ascertained that below 20 is chilly, above 20 is warm, and above 30 is hot.  And if it's above 40 you probably shouldn't leave the house...

I'm vegetarian too (well, was for 18 years and now relegated status to 'kind of vegetarian' but that's another story, and probably one I've alluded to here before), and at first I struggled in Korea due to that. Over time, I (and Hyejung, really) have basically adapted a whole load of Korean dishes to make them veggy.

Apparently if you to one of the many areas in Seoul near a Seventh Day Adventist church and/or school, restaurants will be pretty used to the vegetarian request (so says my now formerly vegetarian friend who lives in Korea).

Guys, no tips on mail order treats? Jacques Torres wants $20 to ship $30 worth of chocolates. Sad

When are you sending it? Chocolate is expensive to ship in warm weather, so I'd avoid that this time of year. When it's cooler, I love Taza Chocolate and Chuao chocolate. But if you need it now, hmm. I don't know off the top of my head; apparently the only tasty stuff I tend to buy online is chocolate.

I thought eating 24 eggs would put me off scrambled eggs for years, but it seems to have had the exact opposite effect.

always more eggs

need eggs

always forever more eggs inside me

Well, my wife died, so I bought a few dozen eggs.  Kept 'em on the shelves, in my closet.  I just.  I didn't realize it would get like this. *motions to living room, where eggs cover literally every surface in a foot-thick layer*

Many of you are probably not familiar with Tastykakes, but they have a beloved thing called Peanut Butter Kandy Kakes
And I have just made that into a regular cake with SO MUCH peanut butter mousse

It's pretty bad at this point.  If I don't have a 19-egg omelette when I first wake-up, I get the shakes all day.  It's all I think about.  What I care about most in this world is that yolk.

Doc ran some tests on me.  LDLs through the roof.  Says if I don't quit, these eggs will kill me.  I just don't think I can kick it.

NICE.  I made PeanutButterKandyKake-malt ice cream a little while back!  It was pretty great.

The ganache is setting, but we have eaten way too much of the mousse to have any cake.

Is that the pic you posted on flickr? Scary.

As far as eggs go. I had about 2 scrambled for dinner tonight. i could easily've eaten twice as many, but probably not 3 times, so I stand by my assertion of "less than 7" or whatever it was in the egg thread.
