I think it's just a mom thing. My mom used to do that sort of thing too. Just appreciate it, and enjoy!
Paige at The Spice House says
Yay! I was so happy to see that your picture of a hot dog was a Chicago Hot Dog. Best kind ever! So much better than those pallid, soggy New York hot dogs. Enjoy your seven packs (or at least your dog will)!
Sarah J. Gim says
kalyn: but i'm not a mom, and weirdly enough, i do the same thing to my sisters.
paige: i like all the things on the Chicago hot dog, but I have to say, i really didn't love the way the bun was prepared - i think the steaming just made it too soft, eventually turning it (like all white breads) into a thick, gluey paste. i always prefer a hot dog bun that's been slathered over with butter then grilled, inside AND out. oh man, so good.
Where did you get this list? Very Impressive!
Sarah J. Gim says
wotv: the list is a compilation of several lists and other websites that I found just by googling! just putting it all here in one, easy-to-read place!
I'm a few months late, but I visit your blog from time to time to check for any updates. I came across this post and laughed (mind you I'm not supposed to even be here since I'm at work...but that's besides the point!).
My story is somewhat similar to yours and I think it's a "mom thing" or maybe even an "Asian mom thing". I go to school 7 hrs away from home and my mom tends to send care packages, so she has that whole "freezing-everything-in-sight-for-storage" down pretty well. I remember telling her I've been craving coconut rolls and egg tarts from the local bakery. Le and behold, within a few days I get this huge box saying "FRAGILE" on it and inside were pastries that could have lasted me the whole month.
I guess it's her way of showing me that she's glad I still need her :). Love your posts, keep it up!
the best ice cream i have had has to be melona ice cream, I had some when I was stationed in korea and when I was stationed in hawaii, now im in alabama and i cant find any, so how can I get some here, who, do I have to order from?
