So friends - let's catch up.
Last post, I bought a house in NJ, and then spent most of the fall working on it.
In October I got to help co-host my sister-in-laws baby shower (I was in charge of food), with a menu consisting of wontons with chili oil, marinated cucumber salad, chicken satay, and pork belly BLT sliders on homemade Parker house rolls. Ask me to make you Parker house rolls - they're tasty.
|Another Giants fan getting added to the clan.|
|Re-imagined BLT: Bourbon glazed pork belly, sun-dried tomato spread on a fresh Parker house roll.|
|Nugget, only a couple days after birth.|
|Crossing the bridge to what was a pretty tough hike in Taroko Gorge!|
|Eat with Daddy Yu's Family.|
|Eat with Grandma and Grandpa Kung.|
|Eat tasty beef noodle soup.|
Then we went to Japan and ate sushi at 5:45 in the morning, after waiting since 3:30 a.m.
|Raw fish for breakfast? YES PLEASE.|
In February, Joe and I hosted our first Chinese New Years / Super Bowl!
|Feast from the East.|
Am I glowing in that picture?...because February was also when Joe and I found out...
|I was pregnant! With our Little Monkey! (Who will have to be a Red Sox fan, unfortunately,)|
We told my parents when Liz was back for a weekend, and told Joe's family over Easter.
In April we did a babymoon in Nashville.
|I tried to capture the surprise, we got everyone ready for a photo, and I said, on on the count of three say, "Vicky's Pregnant"... As you can see, everyone just smiled for the photo...until someone said..."Wait, really?"|
|I could eat Loveless cafe biscuits all day.|
|We did a cave tour to walk off some of the mass biscuit consumption.|
|Wow she's growing fast!|
May happened and now June. I got to throw my first BBQ, turn 29, and tell the world about Little Monkey!
|Ribs in the BGE are $.|
|Have to have Mama Yu style corn.|
|Sausage sliders with onions and peppers.|
|Steak tips marinated in garlic, soy, balsamic, and maple syrup.|
|Three (one was hiding) generations of Kung women :)|
|Our wonderful cake made by our local bakery.|
|Making a wish!|
So that's what's happened over the last 8 months. Now that we're all caught up, get ready for some more food posts as our garden comes in!
