순두부 & oatmeal



Sound nasty? Well, don't knock it, it was a pretty good combo. (low calorie as well) The 순두부 지게 (sundubu jigae) was made with 촌각된장 (chon gak doen jang) so was very potent (haha oh yeah) and also had the requisite 호박 (zucchini squash) & pork & onions & 순두부. See, the problem is, oatmeal is bland, and the "normal" things to eat it with tend towards the sweet and fruity, while I prefer savory elements - they just help me feel fuller. I dunno. I've read that people mix in a tbsp. of natural peanut butter, but again, I classify PB as more sweet than savory. My father treats oatmeal and cream of wheat as 축 (gruel) (which it *is* I suppose) and happily eats it plain with dabs of 간장 (soy sauce) but that feels weird to me.

I could've made an egg white omelette, but I feel wasteful ditching all those yolks - maybe I can save them and incorporate them into a bait ball or chum ball... hmmm, interesting possibility, using egg yolk as a binder to the random oatmeal and fish parts that I would create chum ball out of... that could work.

Well, anyway, according to my handy dandy MyFitnessPal iPod app (blech, sorry to use such a buzzy phrase), my brekkie only amounted to 421 calories. Shazaam!

hahah You can save that "look of admonishment/disapproval" Lettuce Bug--Yes, the egg is raw, but w/ sundubu chigae, it's usually served in a stone pot and comes to the table still boiling. The egg is cracked into it and cooks in the residual heat.
Sidenote: as a kid, a quick go-to meal for me was 계란 & 간장 (literally, egg and soy sauce) which consisted of a bowl of rice with a raw egg cracked into it, mixed together with soy sauce and sesame oil. Eaten just like that, maybe w/ some kimchi, but otherwise not cooked any further.

tl;dr used to eat raw egg all the time, never got salmonella, still probably not a good idea though...
