Korean Beef Bulgogi and Family Night
We tried a Korean beef bulgogi recipe for dinner this afternoon, which is available online for free and is incredibly easy to make. This would be a great first recipe for someone who didn’t know how to cook so if you’ve been thinking about getting started in the kitchen or on the grill, give this one a go. The entire thing cost less than $5 per person, had less than 600 calories per person, and was delicious with the lettuce and rice we used as wraps. We’ll definitely add this to the virtual recipe box for the future.
It was supposed to be part of a Korean drama night with family (I’ve gotten nearly all of them hooked on them so we schedule a few nights a week where they come over, we make dinner, and hang out catching up on adventures from 6,500 miles away.) Unfortunately, my dad wasn’t feeling well and my mom felt guilty going ahead without him. Instead, everyone sort of did their own thing, which was still a lot of fun. My youngest sister came over and is cracking up as she watches Season 4 of RuPaul’s Drag Race in the living room after someone said something about it at college (the uncontrollable laughing coming from that area is making me lose it because it’s contagious). She brought over a video game she wants me to play called Ace Attorney. I have no idea what to expect but she loves the series. You’re a defense attorney and have to find evidence to win cases in court.
My brother and sister-in-law went over their Berkshire Hathaway discount order for a home renovation project with me as I played Civilization on the MacBook at the kitchen counter. I’ve managed to play a game as Egypt, Morocco, and Poland to refine my strategy, which needs work. I excel at small, focused empires and have a very high win rate when using them but can’t seem to build spread empires. I’m too much of a perfectionist and I want every city to be flawless, which you can’t do. This is not SimCity. The objective is victory, not the well-being of my people. Overcoming my own bias towards magnanimity is proving to be difficult.
I have to stop by Omaha tomorrow to finalize some orders and maybe do some shopping while the discount prices are in effect at Borsheim’s and Nebraska Furniture Mart. This next week or two is going to be a bit tight because we have a lot that needs to be completed before we fly out to California.
