Talking about food makes hungry right? Well, my friends know that I can talk about food constantly, whole day every day, so that is exactly what I love to do! Yeah d’oh, what do you think? Why did I start this blog in the first place? 😉
Last weekend it happened again, a long talk about food. About Indonesian food this time, the friends that we were travelling from SF to LA with grew up with lots of Indonesian food, something I can really be jealous about! I can’t wait until we will be invited over for dinner (this is not a hint. Or maybe it is…).
Last week we drove up to San Francisco. P had to go for work so we decided I went along plus we extended our stay for two nights. And best of all: we went by car instead of flying so we could drive back over the Pacific Coast Highway on Sunday!
Like, best decision ever! I drove up the PCH once, in October with my brother and his girlfriend. We didn’t plan our trip well because by the time we arrived at the beautiful part -Big Sur- it was already getting dark 🙁 So this time P and I decided to do it better!
Can you believe it’s already November? And that means that Thanksgiving is coming up!
In the Netherlands we don’t do Thanksgiving. But of course we do Christmas! So when Readers.com asked me to create a holiday recipe for their Holiday Cookbook I instantly thought of the ‘Rollade’ my mom served during many Christmasses. (is that a word? Well, it is now!)
The most popular Christmas tradition in the Netherlands is ‘gourmetten’.
I had a dream.
Well, not actually a dream, it was more like a day dream. I was day dreaming of a soft steamed Chinese bun filled with tender pulled pork.
I had the dream about this delicious meal after having lunch at Take A Bao in the Century City Mall. I had a bao with hoisin pork and it was good! After my bao lunch I went to see the Jennifer Aniston movie We’re the Millers, the lens of my camera was ‘kaput’ so I decided to take a day off. And I knew P didn’t need to see that movie so if I wanted to see it I had to go alone. And I could do that during the day!
I liked the movie, I was laughing my ass off but all I could think of was baozi and Chinese pulled pork.
