Made japchae today -- sweet potato noodles with stir-fry vegetables and slivers of beef chuck.

It was pretty easy and very tasty. Next time I think I'll use frozen spinach though, so that I don't have to fiddle with blanching it.

I made kimchi stew following the recipe from Robin Ha's Cook Korean! and had it for lunch. The only variation I made to it was I used kimchi from No 1 Sons instead of making it myself, I had to use some of the kimchi juice from the kkakdugi kimchi I also bought because I didn't have enough juice from the regular kimchi, and I used extra-firm tofu instead of firm tofu. Next time I might try it with white kimchi, and add onions or scallions.

It's really good, but it will clear your sinuses.

Today I made hobakjuk (sweet pumpkin/kabocha porridge) using the recipe from Robin Ha's Cook Korean! It was really simple and easy. I might mix it up a little next time and substitute honey for the sugar, as I actually have pumpkin honey from the Bee Folks.

She has an occasional webcomic -- Banchan in 2 pages -- if you'd like to try one of her recipes without buying the book. I picked up one of her Banchan in 2 pages minicomics at SPX this past weekend.

My rice balls (ongsimi) dissolved a bit more than I think they were supposed to, but all in all, it was a decent lunch. I'd cut the sugar by a third next time I make it, though.
