I do hope all my friends in the US had a splendid holiday weekend and that all your barbecues went well. Long time since we have been to a barbecue. We can't have one ourselves in an apartment building, too dangerous. Some people do have electric barbecues but I am not sure they are strictly legal in an apartment building either. Not as dangerous as propane though.
We are pretty glad they are not doing our balcony yet. We have a large percentage of our belongings packed in either plastic storage boxes or plastic garbage bags, sitting on our balcony. I cannot imagine what we would have done without a balcony. Let's hope this is definitely cleared up this time and doesn't continue to hang around til they get to us. Today we are joining a friend for lunch at the Mandarin and then going on to rent the shop vac to remove the Diatomaceous Earth which my Hepa Filter vacuum cannot cope with. We are planning to rent it for 4 hours or less, that's $25. Any longer and we will start running up bills.
I would really like to try eating these before I try making them. I am not sure whether I would dare make them. They sound delicious and I do enjoy Kimchee which is pretty spicy stuff. If I do have a go, I will cut it down to the smallest amount I can just in case. I am pretty sure Matt wouldn't like these.
