The Koreas

We were super excited to study North and South Korea because my husband lived in South Korea for two years while serving a mission for our church, so he had a lot of fun memories that he could share with us.  He spent most of his time in Seoul except for five months he was in Donghae.  He even had a chance to visit the DMZ!

We had a LOT of fun with the food and snacks!

First, we ordered a Korean snack pack off of Amazon.  We split everything six ways, so you don't get a lot of any one thing, but it still took us a few days to get through it all.  The biggest hits were the Milkis, the Crown Sando cream cookies, and the rice senbei crackers.

Next we found a Korean Market here in San Antonio.  My husband Dave picked up more Milkis and Crown Sando cookies, of course, but also Pocari Sweat (a sports drink that is actually Japanese, but that my husband had while in Korea), Aloe Dream (so so yummy!), a red bean bun, and fresh kimchi.

To top it all off, my husband made bulgogi!  He used a spicy pork bulgogi recipe but substituted chicken instead of pork.  It was spicy, but not so much that my kids couldn't eat it.  It was so delicious, I requested it again for Mother's Day!

South Korea is definitely a place we would love to visit some day!
