Two things, food-related

There are a couple of things I forgot to mention about the weekend.  On Sunday, John and I had a late lunch/early dinner at Woo Lae Oak in Tysons Corner.  Korean barbecue.  I love it.  And I don’t understand why there aren’t any Korean restaurants near us.  Tysons isn’t exactly around the corner.  I think the Pentagon City Woo Lae Oak is still my favorite, but that might be because I’ve been there more times.  I definitely liked this one better than the one in LA (too loud, too echo-y, couldn’t hear anyone).  And the food was super good.

The other thing is Amish Friendship bread.  Christina baked a loaf for me for my birthday.  This stuff is delicious.  It should be illegal.  It’s moist, sugary, covered in cinnamon, and I think Christina said it had vanilla pudding in it.  Unbelievable.  Apparently, somebody gives you the dough and a loaf, and you add to the dough and make more of your own.  But adding to the dough makes a bunch more that you are supposed to pass on to your friends.  And it takes ten days to make.  So Christina, wonderful friend that she is, spared me the chain letter aspect of this whole thing and gave me delicious bread.  I appreciate that.

    Wait, so you pass the dough around, use some, add some, and pass it on?
    Errr… How old is some of that dough? That might not be so fresh anymore.
    Mmmm! It comes with built in cheese.

    Erik, on top of that, you’re not supposed to refrigerate it. It sounds totally weird (Mom’s knowledge of sourdough aside), but it tasted REALLY good.
