Some food-related (mostly) things we enjoyed this past week:
H Mart is a giant Asian grocery store that defies description. The produce section alone is overwhelming, with bins and bins of exotic fruits and vegetables. There are rows and rows of all different types of kimchi (one of Dan’s favorite things) and pickled stuff. Aisles and aisles of noodles and rices. Tons and tons of fresh seafood and various kinds and cuts of meats. Cases and cases of frozen food items. Shopping at H Mart is an experience, even if you don’t end up buying anything.
We made our own (healthier) version of a favorite fast-food breakfast: toasted whole wheat muffin with browned slices of Canadian bacon, melted cheddar cheese and a fried egg with slightly runny yolk. Ronald McDonald’s got nothing on us.
We always love finding excellent, new (to us) restaurants, especially Tex-Mex places. After just one visit, Lazaranda Mexican Seafood Grill has officially been added to our restaurant rotation. The menu is extensive and everything we tried was delicious. Most importantly, Lazaranda exceeded our Tex-Mex expectations of the perfect margarita and awesome guacamole.
We enjoyed a post-dinner evening swim last week and wondered why we’ve never done so before. Floating around the pool and watching the moon come up was a great way to end the day.
Best jambalaya ever, with smoked turkey and andouille sausage. We both had seconds and might have had thirds if we didn’t want to save some for lunches later in the week (when it was even better than the first night!)
