Some Korean Comfort Food

My friend Helen threw a small housewarming dinner party last night and graciously served us plenty of home-cooked Korean food. What a feast to warm the heart ... and our tummies.

Pancakes with calamari, onions, green onions, and kimchi

Bulgogi with toasted sesame seeds sprinkled on top

Left: Kimchi
Right: King oyster mushrooms sauteed in olive oil with garlic, onions,
green onion, sea salt, and freshly-ground pepper

Ricecakes sauteed in olive oil, with sauce made from red chili paste, sesame oil,
ground apples, orange juice, and molasses

Fresh honeydew

But even better than the food was the company of good friends. Thanks Helen!
