Happy Sunday. Here is a collection of things Chooch made last week which is exactly what the name of this blog post alludes.
1. kimchi bokkeumbap
Henry bought Chooch another one of those vegetarian meal kit things and this one included ingredients of “kimchi fried rice” but anyone who knows anything about Korean food knows that this is actually “bokkeumbap” and it’s something that is included at the end of meals in certain restaurants in Korea, where the server will come over and dump all the extra rice and kimchi into a pan at your table and stir that shit up right in front of you. Honestly—restaurants in Korea are next level.
Chooch was mad though because this one came with mushrooms that he had to scrape the “gills” and he hates mushrooms to begin with so it’s always a great sign when you can hear the chef in the kitchen gagging and dry-heaving. Mmmm!!
He picked all the mushrooms out of his own serving lol.
2. Fancy Moroccan Carrot Thing
Another one of the recipes that came in the meal kit was this WONDERFUL carrot thing. I love non-orange carrots so this was very appealing to me. Chooch felt like he cooked the rice too long but it had that wildly desirable crunch-layer to it so I gave it two thumbs up. I love crunchy/mildly-burnt rice! It’s the best part of bibimbap too!
Anyway, Chooch is much better at plating than Henry. It’s awesome to have two people cooking for me now haha.
3. Edible Drew Portrait
Chooch’s final assignment for his gifted art class was to make a mosaic or collage using shit around the house. I thought it would have been a good opportunity to do a portrait of his loving mother using (costume) jewels and flowers, but he ignored me and opted instead on his favorite cat Drew as the subject matter, and used dry goods from the kitchen.
I mean, it’s technically edible but there is A LOT OF PEPPER, garlic powder, salt and onion powder mixed with cocoa and sprinkles, so…
Anyway, this isn’t actually due until next Friday so I was super impressed that he knocked it out in one sitting, an entire week in advance. Thank god.
He took a picture so he could turn it in, and then promptly threw it away, lol.
4. Cats uncomfortable
And I’d be remiss if I didn’t include this picture of him making our poor cat Penelope uncomfortable.
Welp, that’s all for today. Happy Sunday (did I already say that?). Go hug a tree and be nice to each other.
