last saturday (after i fell asleep not even 10 minutes into frozen the night before), we thought we wanted a quiet night in, just the two of us. we spent the afternoon returning things to the mall (seriously, it felt like we were making so much money returning so many clothes i couldn't decide on without my trusty fashion expert/fiance). then, being the social butterflies we are, we decided that a night in "could" mean that we just bring the people to us, so we invited friends over for snacks and drinks. nothing crazy, very casual, and much-needed! hung served up some cranberry, caramelized onion, manchego, and cheddar paninis on sourdough and we laid out some random indian snacks and cucumbers with hummus. mixed with boxed pinot grigio and schofferhoffer grapefruit beer, our random night in with scramblings from the fridge turned into quite the fun night!
we have an exciting month ahead of us with family visits, our first indian wedding experience coming up, and, most important, hung's gallon-sized bag of kimchi from H-Mart will be "ready" in a few weeks. he claims the expiration date is more like the "not-delicious-until-" date. one day i'll understand, but for now, i can't even stand the smell of that stuff! once we reach the "not-delicious-until-"date, we're supposed to introduce my palate to it by sneaking it into kimchi fried rice. it's fried rice, friends, so it's got to be good right? i'm going to keep telling myself that until that day comes.
hope you have a great monday!
