Here now and now here or nowhere

The title of this blog comes from a play on words that "now here" is also the same letters as "nowhere" just with a space added in the middle. I am always trying to get better at being in the here and now, and I've always been a bit of a joker so that is why I chose this name.

making kimbap

one of the things I asked Mr Kim if we could do was to make Kimbap one day while I stayed here. well, today was that day. in college Corey and I experimented with making maki rolls so this wasn't too different but Mrs Kim also brought out the triangle roll maker, which not only had I never done but I had never seen before. I love buying the triangle rice rolls as snacks and after seeing how easy it is to make I am intrigued to experiment more with the process when I get home.

plus a little wine. this wine reminds me of manischevitz, no joke.

we also unearthed the kimchi I made last week to eat with this. I thought maybe too much ginger but the family all liked.
