how i spent my christmas vacation

I’m finally getting around to posting some photos of my lovely Christmas weekend in LA. It was sunny and gorgeous, and warm to the point of almost making me wish I’d packed a tshirt instead of all sweaters. The weekend started in SF with a visit from Santa Claus this jolly elf. Her name is Diva.

Then we hitched a ride on the world’s smallest reindeer…

…drove to LA, cooed over how nicely my mom’s garden is coming along…some garlic and green onions, amongst other things…

…and then drove to my aunt’s house, where we ate plate after plate of this:

A million kinds of kimchi, cellophane noodles (japchae), fish, some kind of root veggie thing…

Ribs slathered with my aunt’s “secret recipe” of bbq sauce + gochujang…

And homemade smores cookies, snickerdoodles, chocolate macarons and pumpkin mochi.

I’m still digesting it all.

I plan to start eating salads and soups to make up for the gluttonous weekend, I really do.  But first, I have a little something I need to finish eating.

Oh yes he did!
