|Pizza Fruit Tart|
Next up is my pizza fruit tart. I made a crust from flour, sugar and butter and baked it up. Then I made a sweetened cheese filling with cream cheese and topped it with fruit they had in the fridge- oh, wait. I had to borrow the strawberries from a neighbor. On top is a orange glaze I made from orange juice, sugar and corn starch.
Now the last night of my stay, I decided to throw a dinner party for my parents. I couldn’t figure out what to get them for Christmas (they didn’t like my idea for a bidet…they already had a Kindle…and they told me I was not allowed to go crazy buying gifts for them), so my present to them was a dinner party for them and their friends.
Before arriving in America, I had packed my bags with all the essential sauces and ingredients that I knew I wouldn’t be able to get in America and prepared a variety of different Korean dishes.
For dinner I made daktoritang (Red Spicy Chicken BBQ), bulgogi, japchae (glass noodle salad), bean sprout side dish, spinach side dish, and a cucumber side dish. It was a lot of food, but I was able to pull it off in about 2 hours. So did these old folks like what I made?
I think so, because dinner was pretty quiet at first. Many of the people at the table never had had Korean food and they said they liked the vegetables and the meat dishes. They especially like the daktoritang (even though a few said it was super spicy.) It was a good time and I really enjoyed doing it.
A dinner party for a christmas present, not a bad idea. It could become a new trend.
