FOOD!!! :D  
(part 2/2) I miss the food from home SO much. I don't think I appreciated my mom's cooking the past two years a lot. Last year, I ate out so much... the year before that, I was obsessed with beginning of college. This year, I'm over both and want nothing but some vertebrae soup and duck and all the other wonderful, high-fiber and healthy foods my mom cooks!!! :( here are some from over the summer:

BEIJING DUCK WRAP: HOW-TO
I first had Beijing Duck in beijing a couple summers ago. I might've had it earlier, whatever. Anyway it is SO MUCH FUN I LOVE IT!!! My family started eating it at home since we found this place that makes roasted duck and is really good at it! The duck usually costs $20 and we buy the other ingredients to make our own wrap.

You need some wrap! we use spring roll wrap.

chopped duck pieces. the middle (rib? idk) sections work well for this, except take the meat off the bone obvs.

The sauce is the hardest to find!!! We had this one good sauce that was perfect but unfortunately the Chinese store stopped carrying it... I forget if this is the good brand or the version where my mom mixes it half and half with honey.

wraps

1 piece of duck, dipped lightly in the sauce. add green onions! Very important.

wrap it up... voila!

One of my favorite things about at home is the amazing amount of fruits we have :)

This is like some tofu scramble thing. It's good. It tastes like... idk. lol :P


And this one day I made my parents come with me to this INdian buffet that i really loved (went there with Julia a couple years ago). Dad didn't like it, he likes to "get his money's worth" of food and thinks Indian restaurants are a huge rip-off with all their veggies and lack of meat. So he eats as much goat as he can to make up for the "rip-off". LOL



I actually love the decorations and ambience. check out how nice it is! I love the sink too... but didn't go lol





I don't even know what I got tbh, I always just get literally some of everything in the buffet. and then it's all mushed together. Tastes sort of the same anyway :P A GIANT BURST OF FLAVOR IN YOUR MOUTH! seriously like a party in your mouth, I love Indian food!





Took more photos of my room and eye that I meant to share as well but forgot about all these pics so I thought I'd share 'em first as they're from months ago...



PS: Lol you can probs tell i was experimenting with a good watermark style...

All of that food looks so good. Indian food is probably one of my absolute favorites. They have this one with chicken and spinach. I love spinach so much, I could eat it every day, and I almost do. It's my favorite vegetable cooked or raw.

haha I also like spinach a lot! besides Baby bok choy, it's probably my favorite green vegetable. The only thing is my teeth feel weird after I eat spinach...

Ha ha, I'm going to chime in with the others here, and go: OH MY GOD FOOOOOOOD. It looks so delicious. I don't eat a lot of duck at home (well, never), so whenever I'm out and have the chance it is the one thing I will never fail to order. <3

Now that I'm not home, it's hard to find duck on menus! Probably 'cause I don't go to fancy restaurants, but there's this one restaurant that has a duck sandwich and I always get it. Tastes nothing like beijing duck or the duck my mom cooks, but it's also SO GOOD! Duck is just a great meat no matter how it's cooked, I guess :)
