Quarantine Day 12 of 14.

After living and working 6.5 years in the Philippines, we’re back in Korea, for good (for now).  We arrived on 1 June 2020.  As required by Korean regulations in response to Covid-19, we will spend 14 days under quarantine.  Fortunately, we have a family cabin, so it’ll be more like a long holiday, a well-deserved vacation.  Even if we didn’t have to quarantine, our new apartment will be empty until our stuff arrives from Manila, sometime towards the end of the month, so this is the most comfortable place for us to be (for now).

This would’ve been an unremarkable dish but the addition of chicory – my current favorite ingredient – made it special.  More than anything, I love that my boys are now saying, “Chicory?  Awesome!”
