I've always heard about this holiday and how people dread it, since it mostly consists of WOMEN working their butts off in the kitchen. And yup, it was true........the women prepared, cooked, and cleaned, while the men relaxed. Hardly seems fair doesn't it?
Since I'm still a guest I only had little work to do. But I imagine in the future there will be a lot more in store for me.
So this is what I did. I made mandu (sort of like dumplings I guess). Pretty simple, and very tasty!!!
And this is what Sung Hyun's mom looks like. Despite her age, she was working just as hard as everyone else.
It just so happened to be her birthday too -- 69 years old, I believe!!!!
And this is how Koreans eat, on the floor with several different food choices, which of course you dig into with your chopsticks -- no individual plates here!!!!
WHEN IN KOREA DO AS KOREANS!!!
