From Cupcakes to Traditional Korean Food and Everything in Between

Weekend Bits

I caught some of the comedy stylings of Hannibal Buress.  According to him, “foodie” is just a euphemism for fat people sht, lol.  He proceeded to make references to such people and I couldn’t stop laughing at myself.  Why yes, I do have more pictures of food in my phone than of people or things.  I actually had to clear some out because my phone had already reached the maximum limit for images.

I also crossed off another restaurant from my list, an edible delicious to-eat list to work through, if you will.

Earlier in the day, I made myself a quick breakfast,

Had lunch

I hope that everyone else enjoyed their weekend and there were lots of happy moments and delicious food to go around.  I have a very special video to share withe everyone tomorrow.

Love,

Your Squishy Monster ^.~
