Kimchi Jjigae

My cousins ES and HJ, sisters, came over, along with their husbands, all for the first time, so I tried to do something special.  I prepared a variety of burritos – shrimp, chicken, beef – plus guacamole and chips and veggie soup as appetizers.  However, rolling multi-layered burritos took more time and effort than I’d anticipated, resulting in stop-and-go service. The delays between servings wouldn’t have been so bad if the food had turned out better, making them worth the wait, but the low fat sour cream and non-fat refried beans made the burritos somewhat blah.  What with the pressure and the poor outcome, I didn’t really feel like eating at the time.

As soon as the guests had left, I whipped up a pot of kimchi jjigae and a pair of fried eggs, and that’s when the real feast began. And judging by my wife’s appetite, she also hadn’t eaten much of the Mexican would-be feast. We finished the whole pot in 10 minutes.

This was the 8th meal remaining in Cycle 1 of GMTD.
