Since it doesn’t make a lot of sense for me to go back to Seoul for the one week of break that we have, I usually spend my Thanksgiving break driving up and down the East Coast. After a particularly exciting weekend in New York, I drove to one of my favorite friends Steven’s house in Amherst, New Hampshire – yes, there is an Amherst in New Hampshire.
Not to say it wasn’t in the middle of nowhere, and Steven was blasting the twangiest of country music as we drove around the backwoods – it was still the perfect change of pace. And I also got some DELICIOUS food out of it. As soon as I got there, I stuffed myself with short-ribs? Some variation of meat, but it literally melted in my mouth. I don’t have a picture of it because I think I was so hungry that my eyes were going in opposite directions.
We went to a diner before we went on our super ‘Murrican drive where I got a Pork Stuffing Scrambled Eggs. Healthy to say the least.And then the better stuff: I ate slow-cooked pork and cauliflower couscous, which were AMAZING, for dinner. I definitely ate more than my over 6-foot tall 200-something lbs. friend.And then one of the most special meals was one Steven made for me!!!!!!!! (may or may not be embarrassing him but yolo) – Scrambled Eggs with Goat Cheese Cheddar, Avocadoes, and Toasted CiabattaWe also decorated sugar cookies. You could say we’re the Picasso and Matisse of our generation.So glad I got to visit and so thankful for such kind people 🙂
