but what i really wanted to share is this *chinese eggy tart pie* that i made in loving honor of my faaav egg tarts EVER from golden gate bakery in san francisco. aaand they’re jiggly sweet and yellow, just like me! 🥧
you’re also probably wondering why im sharing a bowl of cubed butter with you. i managed to get carried away talking about my first memory of real butter through my internship at alice waters’ chez pansies foundation. if you have the time, read about it on dear saturdays!
my mom called me yesterday to tell me that persimmons are now $0.99 cents a pound at our local neighborhood store which only means one thing: now is the time of year to have persimmons with everything!! 🍅 #thatisapersimmonemoji#notatomato
while waiting for this gamja tang, a korean potato and pork stew, to simmer down, i thought and i thought some more and wrote it all down on dear saturdays. and i think i might be the first person on the internet to mention gamja tang and gun control in the same sentence.
and to no one’s surprise, cooking has always been a vehicle to better process my thoughts. no exceptions to this ritual were made today, especially having to be indoors due to the rain and hearing about the heartbreaking things happening close to home.
