I am still learning some Korean (especially since our agency sent us a list of common words) and as much as I can about their culture so we will be good ambassadors for the USA. I am also beginning to learn to cook Korean food. This morning, I cooked hoddeok. I know it is typically a street vendor food, but it sounded yummy and looked like it would serve as breakfast for our family (since my children love pancakes). Hoddeok is sweet pancakes with brown sugar syrup filling. They turned out really good and my kids loved them.
As you can see, my first few kind of broke open (still very yummy - but I was learning)
Happy kids - success!!!
Not sure what I will try to cook next, but I want to continue to learn how to cook Korean food. It will be a great way to help Jacob know where he came from and honor his heritage and maybe help him not be so home sick. I do know hoddeok found a place in our house as a meal or a snack!
