I think, like the country, Korean food is between North Chinese and Japanese food.  There's a lot of tart and spicy.  Another restaurant in Portland serves stone bowls of Korean stews that are so hot, they give you an egg to break into the stew.  It cooks quickly, leaving strands and chunks of freshly cooked egg in the stew.  Physically hot and spicy hot.   And I love kimchee.

All your food looks great, Daniel.  Tasty eating!  

I don't believe I've had Korean food either.  Yes, to Thai, Japanese, Vietnamese, and Chinese, though.  I'll have to continue my culinary journey to some new spots.

Don't know if I've ever had Korean food. Looks worth a try.

All of that looks so delicious!

Tonight we went to a Korean noodle house.  Oh wow, those were good.  The kitchen is in view of the dining area, tiny place.  You can watch the cook stretch the noodle dough by hand, pulling into long noodles, slapping it on the board, folding, and pulling again.  The noodles come out chewey, stretchy, and the sauce binds to them so tasty.

Today's bread loaf was sourdough with onions and sundried tomatoes.  I sauteed the onions in olive oil before incorporating into the bread dough.  The tomatoes were Romas that I sliced thin and dehydrated last summer.    This was the first try for onion bread, I thought it was one of the better loafs so far.

I'm using a nicely designed set of dishes that I bought at a resale for under $10. Once I break a few of them I'll go back and buy more. I seldom have complete sets but I have what I want.

My late mother had a complete set of fancy looking dinnerware that she kept locked away in a china closet. I don't want it. This set was more for appearance than for eating. Is it valuable? I have no idea and could not care less.

Butterfly Gold was in 75 million households in the 70s and 80s.  Wow.  My parents used Melmac.  I think I like them because of a false nostalgia - they are not in my history, but they still evoke a time of family meals and a kind of optimism about the home.  I don't know.

Yes, I don't like the dish pattern to overpower the appearance of the food.

I can't imagine a mixed vegetable stir fry on a plate covered in a brilliant multi-colour pattern.

Lilac, the light weight is very helpful for me too.  White backgrounds seem to make food more appetizing, along with the simple patterns.  I look at the patterns a little like deciding, today I will wear the blue shirt, or the grey shirt.  Same for dishes.

I like the lightweight of the Corelle because of arthritis in my fingers.

I remember the Golden Butterfly colour, but we did own the green flower border, as well as the blue.

We prefer foods served on the white backgrounds as opposed to dark.
