-Changgok, Sujeong, Seongnam, Gyeonggi, Republic of Korea-
with the Family
On the first weekend of the new year, a quiet Saturday evening, a simple meal was in order, so I prepared the always reliable standby (see 1.101 The At-Home Quick-Fix Go-To Meal – Deluxe!). This time, in recognition of the year that was, already nostalgic for the Philippines that we had left behind, I introduced a new element: sinigang. The tangy soup, providing a welcome counterbalance to the pan-fried items, elevated the experience to a premium level. If this is to become a regular part of AHQFGT, I will need to get more sinigang soup base sachets (see 11.207 Pork Sinigang).
