Today, I attempted my first homemade ravioli. Was it success? Was it failure? I don't know... It definitely wasn't great but it wasn't bad at all either. The chicken and spinach filling was delicious but the pasta was too thick... :( The tomato sauce is something I made many many times so it was no problem. Maybe I should just stick to making Korean foods after all. Haha.
Well I tried. Next time I will do better! If I fail again, store bought frozen ravioli it is!
Oh and here is a proof of makings of ravioli! :) Don't laugh at my pasta!
I HATE bugs. I SCREAM and RUN when I see a flying insect. Another reason why my dad doesn't want me to drive. He is worried that I will crash my car if I see a fly or a bee! Haha.
Anyways, recently we've been dealing with a lots of house flies so my husband got me Venus Flytrap! It EATS flies! It looks pretty scary with all those pointy things but love the color. Can you imagine that this plant can actually catch & eat flies? For fun my husband poked one of the mouth with a chopstick and it actually closed in less than a second. Seriously gave us goosebumps! Can't wait for these guys to catch and eat bunch of flies!!! DIE FLY! DIE!! :)
Gift 2. New York Cheese cake & Tiramisu Coffee cake
They are from Anna's Cake house. I love their cakes. Yum~ We ate them all while watching "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time". I didn't expect that much from this movie but it was pretty darn good~ :)
Now you go grab some sweets and enjoy a movie with your loved ones~
September 22nd is Chuseok. Time to eat lots and lots of rice cakes! :)
For those who don't know what Chuseok is.... Let me copy/paste from Wikipedia!
Chuseok (Korean: 추석), originally known as Hangawi (한가위) (from archaic Korean for "great middle"), is a major harvest festival and a three-day holiday in Korea celebrated on the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar. Like many other harvest festivals, it is held around the Autumn Equinox. As a celebration of the good harvest, Koreans visit their ancestral hometowns and share a feast of Korean traditional food.
I guess it's sort of like Thanksgiving day in Korea. Well whatever day it is, if it's a day where you get to eat bunch of yummy foods who can complain? :P
What a funky weather it has been. I have a feeling that this week will be the week where fall will officially start. :) Good bye Summer, hello Fall!
It's really weird how Ellye knows that bad weather means no play outside time. She normally begs to go outside around 3pm but yesterday she just slept all day and chewed on her toy. :) But I'm sure she missed that grass field that's in front of our building~
Here is something I did for fun today. Again inspired by a Korean Drama called "DongYi". Story is based on a Queen back in 1690's in Korea.
I sketched on paper, cleaned up in flash and colored in ArtRage. ArtRage is an awesome program. If you haven't had a chance to try it out, I definitely recommend it!
My good friend, Peter Tyler gave me a good feedback/advice for my comic and I did few changes to it. I never really thought about using grays but it worked out great. As you can see, my snail pops out a lot more from the background and each panel is a lot clear to read.
