a bright day

rice cakes

Oh! Finally a new entry! It's been so long but that is really how busy I was.
I haven't touched my dear mixer in weeks, and I miss it terribly. At the same time, I've been enjoying being a busybody. It's always nice to have things to do, chances to be productive. Things have been soo peaceful and bright despite all the busyness. And so I am so grateful to be able to enjoy it. It's so beautiful out too lately. And my heart is so bright. Only through the strength that God provides...

Anyways. So today. I didn't do any baking, but... Boiling! My grandmother has been home with us for quite a while now, and she's done a LOT of cooking the past month, but I wasn't able to record any of it. But I remembered to take photos of this one! My grandmother made delicious little rice cakes, that look more like chocolate truffles than anything. I remember watching my grandmother make it when I was a little girl--crouching on the floor with her (also known as the "kimchee squat") and being so fascinated by the pretty, round morsels. Many many years later, now sitting on chairs, my grandmother and I together made these rice cakes called "Kyung-Dan", which is often eaten on special holidays.
