Korean Church Food

My mom’s church was trying to raise some money so they sold a bunch of hot food and prepared food. Here’s a crapton of kimchi. Each of these giant bags was only $10 and my mom made me buy some. And then, she took it from me so she could keep some more and give some to her friends. So basically, she made me go to her church and buy her kimchi. But it was some damn good kimchi. Seriously.
They were also selling some greens. Did these come from their garden? I’m not sure. I think this is lettuce. I can’t be sure though.
Some fish cakes for sale… which she also made me buy. So now it’s sitting in my freezer. Some day, when it’s cold out again, I’ll make some ddukbokki with it.
They were also selling big bottles of kochujang and what are these… some kind of mochi?
Ok, let’s move onto the hot prepared foods. Here’s the haemulpajeon (seafood pancake). Very good!
Here’s some kimbap. You know why this was so good? Because there was no damn cooked spinach in it. That always ruins it for me. So this was definitely a winner in my book!
And here’s a big container of ddukbokki. It was pretty good, but not great. But you know what I do when someone puts a plate of ddukbokki in front of my face? I eat the hell out of it. I don’t care how good or bad it is, I’ll still eat it. In addition to the food, they also had some traditional korean cultural performances. It was pretty entertaining. If it involves food and music, then this is the only kind of churchgoing I enjoy.
