It’s Bowl #2’s birthday today! Hip hip hooray!
Honestly, I’m a little embarrassed this year, because our recent life whirlwind bit me in the butt and I didn’t have anything particularly special planned for him – unlike last year’s Hawaii food–stravaganza. It’s particularly tragic because my man has been so downright amazing lately — powering through my brother’s visit, an estrogen-packed few days in Vegas, and an apartment move (hyper-organized and virtually stress-free, all thanks to him). On top of that, he’s been absolutely slammed with work. To say he’s been a trooper and the best fiance a girl could ask for is a gross understatement.
Luckily (or, even luckier) for me and my lack of birthday planning, Bowl #2 is low-maintenance, especially when it comes to food. In a sharp and somewhat baffling contrast to me (indiscriminate gluttony personified) he has about six edibles and potables that he’s wild about:
- Spicy ahi poke.
- Bacon, scrambled eggs & rice. (Every single time I make this he says, “This looks amazing!” like I just whipped up a tower of soufflés.)
- Kimchi fried rice. (In fact, kimchi anything.)
- And lastly … chamchi kimbap.
