Favorite Moments: How to Eat Your Favorite Thanksgiving Pie

May I introduce my little pumpkin pie, the ultimate fan favorite Thanksgiving dessert?! Some lifetime memories were made late last night after we devoured two rounds of turkey and glazed ham married with my new kimchi sofrito recipe. Afterwards- we were greeted by the inevitable delectable pumpkin pie, who sat next to a perfect pecan pie. They were both pinched long before dessert time of course. But who can blame a room full of overstuffed adults and children? Not me….and I certainly couldn’t say no to anyone asking for more whipped cream…Hope you had fun with yours, because we certainly did!

Hello Pumpkin Pie

Hello Pecan Pie.

Hello Gorgeous!

Me: Show everyone how to eat pie Daniel, Mommy’s taking pictures with my iPhone!

Daniel: Ok….

Daniel takes his FIRST bite of pumpkin pie, EVER.

Daniel: How was that Mommy?

Me: You didn’t smile. :( Can you smile for me?

Daniel: Ok, take another picture…CHEESE!!!!!!

Me: That’s such a fake smile Daniel! Ugh- just eat your pie then.

Daniel: Ok.

Daniel: (silent thoughts) This pie sucks. I’m bored. Thanksgiving sucks.

Daniel: (silent thoughts) I’m sooooo bored……

Daniel: (silent thoughts) At least it’s better than more turkey and veggies!

Daniel: (silent thoughts) I wonder if it tastes any different if I cut it into pieces?

Daniel: (silent thoughts) One more piece to go and then I’ll know. Nothing better than pie with whipped cream…yay!

Daniel: Oh no! I’m out of whipped cream!!!!!!!! MOMMY!!!!!! There’s no more whipped cream! :(

Me: You mean this? You want more?

Daniel: Yay! Yes! Yes! Yes!

Me: Here you go gorgeous! On second thought- do you want to try a big bite of whipped cream?

Daniel: Huh? On my fork?

Me: No. Just open wide!!

Daniel: Um, ok.

Daniel: AH.

Alex: (in the background) Hey what are you doing to Daniel?

Me: You want some too Alex?

Alex: Hey- what are you doing with that thing in my face!!!

Me: Just say Ah- look! It’s really yummy…

Alex: (giggles)

Me: Ok- who’s next? Mozie!!!!

Mozie: I don’t think so. Get that device away from my furry face! (jumps off the couch and hides)

And Daniel takes the last big bite before we’re off to sweet dreams….

Daniel: Mommy, can I tell you something? I had so much fun today! I love you very very much Mommy.

Me: I love you more my little black beauty.

Fireworks sparked off somewhere in the distant sky before we were gently swept away into a dreamy landscape with magical unicorns and fairies…

How to Eat Your Favorite Childhood Ice Cream

I recently went on a culinary voyage to my home away from home. To the place I called home for three primal years of my life. Going to Korea to eat my heart out- I couldn’t leave without having my favorite childhood food- the inevitable ice cream which haunted me for decades, as this little thing was the last thing I remembered eating before taking off into the unknown (South America) with my parents and brother. I didn’t find the strawberry flavor I coveted so much- but instead discovered a new one, pistachio with a chocolate ball at the very end for happy endings.

How to Eat Your Favorite Childhood Ice Cream:

Inspect the little big thing at first.

I wonder if this ice cream missed me as much as I did…

Small bites, licks, exams…

Yup- that’s what I’ve been craving for so many years.

The taste just fills me up with utter joy!

Where have you been all my life?

It’s just me and my little ice cream cone! Like a kid again…but better-

I went out and bought three of them and had it for breakfast!

Pistachio flavored chocolate coated ice cream cone with a happy little ending…

Here’s looking at you kid…

Me: Hello?

Auntie: Rina, did you have breakfast?

Me: Um- yea, having some ice cream right now…

Auntie: for breakfast? You’ll get diarrhea!!

Me: Well- I already had two of them so it’s a tad bit late now don’t you think?

Ok- I gotta go now, have lots of things to do (eat my ice cream in peace!!)

And at the end of this happy journey

there’s a chocolate ball awaiting to be Devoured!

The end~ till we meet again,

hopefully it’ll be sooner than later…

To be continued…

Doesn’t juice make everyone happy? It certainly makes me happy…

Double check.

I’m so glad I can finally put my feet up at the end of a long day…

The birds are singing outside…the sun’s shining…

There’s nothing I would rather do then..to be sipping on some juice with my sippy cup.

Guess what I’m having!

It’s made with grapes.

Do you want some of this grape juice in a sippy cup?

Favorite Moments: How to Eat a Peach

Howdy! Here’s a whole new category called Favorite Moments where I’ll be sharing how to eat your heart out with style. It’s not just what you’re eating that counts, how you do it makes up about fifty percent of the overall experience. Here’s a guide on how to eat a peach:

Hello? What? You want to know how to eat a peach? Um…ok. I’ll take some pics with my iphone.”

Hello happy peach.

Fuzzy little thing, aren’t you?

The first bite is always the best…

That was pretty good. I think I must finish eating this fruit.

And a second bite shortly thereafter…

Do you want to try this? I know you do, trust me, it’s really good.

I’m about halfway through eating this.

It’s just me and the peachy peach.

Almost done, down to the pit.

Devoured. The End~
