Ben: Catie Makes the delicious foods

It's been awhile since Catie has posted on our whole/raw foods program that she has been on, so I thought that I would post an update (and brag about the food that I get to eat). Last night for dinner Catie made baked salmon, green beans, with some sort of delicious butter sauce (it's made with butter, strawberry jam, and Jesus I think). The night before she made beef stew starting from scratch. She had previously used our leftover chicken bits to make chicken stock, which was than used as the base for the beef stew. It was delicious. On Friday we had stove top fried chicken nuggets and spinach, rice, cheese casserole (I contributed by discovering the spinach at our local Lotte Mart a couple of weeks ago). Earlier in the week we had cheesy chicken/rice/broccoli casserole.

In sum, we eat very well thanks to Catie. As one of my co-workers pointed out, quiet jealously, for us eating Korean food in Korea is a novelty and the exception. The other day we were walking around our neighborhood, enjoying the spring weather and I was struck by how much different things were food wise than when we first arrived here. Last fall we would wonder hungrily looking for something to eat. Now Catie has our meals planned out a month in advance, so we never have to roam the streets looking for something to eat. I've eat better these last couple of months, than at anytime since I left home for college. Thank you Catie!
