Project 366: Day 44, 02-13 The Big 3-0!

Well, I didn’t quite complete my 30-B4-30, but I always have this year, right? Or, as my bestie from Erin Pot Pie suggested, just add it to the 40 bucket list! Good call.

* Had to do the first as a B&W cuz my  chartreuse sweater pretty much clashed with the Texas Leather on the wall.

Project 366: Day 40, 02-09 First Birthday Card

My has to be the cutest on earth. She sent me a card today with a pic from the day I was born (all fat cheeked) and a form for me to fill out: 1982 vs. 2012 – weight, height, etc. Adorable.

Tasty Tuesday: My Menu for 29 – 점심 at Crisp

I know I’m a bit off of my Tasty Tuesday schedule, but things have been quite hectic! The bro-in-law was in town, checked another off the 30-B4-30 list and oh, yeah, started a new gig. No excuses, though. I’m going to make a solid effort to keep this blog going just as strong as when I started.

So, to continue the Tasty Tuesday: Birthday Edition, I had to share about our lunch (AKA: 점심 in Korean!) at Crisp in Lakeview. I have heard rave reviews about this Korean-American joint. ChicagoFoodies.com called it the “New KFC” last January and that’s quite the understatement. The famous Korean-inspired fried chicken wings are certainly finger-lickin’ good.

Seoul spectacular!

We got an order of wings with the Seoul Saucy sauce, and it was Seoul delicious! The garlic, ginger and soy sauce was sweet yet tangy, subtle yet bold. There was a perfect amount of sauce, enough to lick your fingers but not enough to get all over your face.

Home of the Buddha Bowl

Our friend we went with highly recommended the Buddha Bowl, and I was immediately sold – it’s topped with an egg! So, we tried the Big Bad Buddha which is piled high with twelve ingredients and Buddha sauce (or, Gochujang). I was a bit underwhelmed with the bowl and much preferred the wings.

Overall, I think Crisp is well worth the hype and Seoul excited to get back there!

Have you been yet? What did you have and what do you think?

Project 365: Day 44 – 02.13

Cory and I celebrated my birthday at Owen and Engine in Bucktown. Cory had previously eaten there with some of his guy friends and came home gushing about the meal. Meanwhile, that night, I was eating spaghetti and a sauce from a jar. Needless to say, I had a case of extreme food jealousy and asked that he take me there for my birthday.
