jin loves to eat at home, Virginia Series: Part 1

So I’ve been gone for a while. Been hibernating at my sister’s in Virginia, spending time with my adorable nieces and nephew, putting on more flabs and bulges than my already size 14 clothes can take. I am now literally bursting at the seams.

My sister Jerrilyn and her husband Ryan are quite into Chinese-y stuff. Look.

IMG_2096Chinese scrolls, table runner, throw pillows…


IMG_2105Chinese-style dining table, red lanterns, red sofas…


But good thing no Chinese food while I am here.

My first night, we have Korean, which means lots and lots of meat.

IMG_1926Grilled pork belly


IMG_1923Okay, we have wonton soup, but this one’s Americanized so it’s not really Chinese-Chinese



On another day, we have shabu-shabu, always best to have at home!

IMG_2120Trays and trays and trays of beef


IMG_2122Kimchi udon (I know, this should belong to the Korean meal, right? But we like to mix!)



And on another day, my bro-in-law Ryan makes a mean steak.

IMG_2398That’s the Steak Master working it


IMG_2420And he bakes a cheesecake, too!
Food styling by moi. I call it “In the Wild” Strawberry Cheesecake.
