|Nick and I eat our jook differently. I grew up with very plain jook with just|
turkey and white pepper in it. He grew up with everything in the kitchen sink
in his. I made gailan and bean sprouts on the side so that we could put in as
much as we wanted. This is Nick's bowl with extra fried garlic on top. I put the
veggies in mine, but ate them all off the top first because I felt like I was ruining
my jook. Nick added awful smelling bamboo shoots and fish sauce to his also.
Fish sauce smells terrible, but I think the bamboo smells worse.

Tonight's Dinner: December 13, 2012
The weather is quite chilly and we had turkey bones left over from last week. Perfect time for jook. I put the rice and bones on the stove while I went for a short run. My short runs, unlike my uncle who runs a 10k every night just for kicks, is actually a short run consisting of a steady-paced two miles. After he did the Disneyland half marathon a couple of years ago, I was inspired to start running again to try to do it also. Unfortunately, last year I gave up because it fell during the time we were going to Malaysia. This year I actually hope to do it. We will see. It's before the wedding so I might actually have motivation to keep up my running. Plus, Emmy loves it. She is content with a solid 3.5 miles, which is currently our long run. That's probably my uncle's warm up, but we'll get there.
