-Oksu, Seongdong, Seoul, Korea-
with the Family
When asked, DJ expressed a desire for fried chicken. I can’t resist a proposal for fried chicken. And lest anyone question the parental judgment in feeding fried chicken to a 3-year-old for dinner, we also gave him a slice of pumpkin pie and ice cream for dessert. That’s protein from the chicken, omega-3 fatty acids and phenols and vitamins from the olive oil (in which the chicken is fried), carbs from the breading of the fried chicken, fiber from the radish cubes, even more vitamins from the pumpkin in the pie, and dairy from the ice cream. And a cup of Power-C Vitamin Water for good measure.
Incidentally, this was the first time in perhaps a decade that I’ve had fried chicken without an alcoholic beverage of some sort.
I’ve been sober since November 3. Going for 50 days, which puts me on the wagon until December 23, just in time for the holidays.
