Ojing-o Bukkeum (Stir-fry Squid)

My hubby said that I cook delicious Ojing-o Bukkeum (Stir-fry squid). Here's how I make it.

Ingredients: squid, sugar, powdered hot chilli pepper (gochugaro), hot pepper paste (gochujang), red pepper or paprika, carrot, soy sauce, onion, garlic, mushrooms

1. Clean and cut the squid and put all the ingredients in a pot.

2. Stir-fry in a medium heat for 10 minutes or until the squid is white and look hard.

Make sure to serve it as soon as it is cooked. I didn't put the amount of each ingredients. You can do it with your own taste. If you want spicy food then add more pepper. If you want sweet food like us then put at least 3 tablespoons of sugar for one squid. That's all! It's easy! Enjoy your meal!

Black Raspberry Vinegar Juice

Whenever my mother in law visits us, she doesn't come with empty hands. She always brings something for us. The last time that she came here, she brought this Bogbunja (Black Raspberry) vinegar juice.

We have to mix the juice with water 5-6 times the amount of juice. It is sour like vinegar but it is made of black raspberry so it's much more delicious than just a vinegar. My mother in law said it's good for our health. Whatever my mother in law thinks or heard that something is good for the health, then she buys and gives us. That's mother's love, I think.

The juice is good when we have a sore throat and it is drunk with either hot or cold water so it is good in all seasons. I drink it with hot water but my hubby prefer to drink it cold.

Favorite Snacks

My hubby likes munching food when he's at home specially when he watches tv. And here are the snacks that he likes to eat. We usually have at least one of this snacks at home so when I get some groceries, I have to consider or include his snacks in my lists.

This snacks are his newly discovered snacks. They are squids legs. They are not as delicious as the octopus legs but they are cheaper.

These are the octopus legs that we can get online. We have to heat them of fried to make them softer. They are too hard so if you don't have strong teeth, then never try to eat them. They are good food if you don't wanna feel sleepy.

The packs at the bottom are small octopus legs. They are softer of course and we don't need to cook when we eat them. Then the middle ones are zuippos or fish jerky and on top are squids. They are sweet and spicy.

This is the beef jerky. His most favorite snacks and the most expensive of them all.

The food are all great with beer or alcohol but my hubby doesn't drink.
