So He Does Eat! Like Real People!

There’s been lots of talk about Obama’s food finickiness. That he’s a picky eater, overly concerned with health, abstemious, etc. So I was pleasantly surprised to find this little video gem where he orders a burger with fries, and a little salad/veggie… on Air Force One! Something we’ll never get to do ourselves. Now, he orders this stuff, but we don’t get to see him eat it. So I’ll believe it when I see it!

Portland Quirks

Portland is a fairly quirky town. Something they have that is great though, are swarms of food trucks. They are dispersed, but in a few parking lots, it’s like an oudoor international food court. You can pretty much get anything. If I lived in Portland, I’d be here every day for lunch.
So in the pacific northwest, they’re crazy about salmon. It’s everywhere. I particularly liked this salmon sculpture in the corner of the building. It’s above a seafood restaurant, so it’s fitting.
Portland has a chinatown. It’s small. The name of this building made me chuckle a bit. I wasn’t sure if it was funny, or I was offended. But I like that city has a good sense of humor.

No Pressure, But It’s Your Inaugural Blog Post…

I’m a live to eat girl. I eat what I want, when I want, as much as I want. I don’t read nutritional information, I don’t follow portion sizes, I don’t stop eating just because I feel full. I’ve lucked out in the gene and metabolism categories, so for now, I’ll continue to gorge.

I didn’t always start out that way. Apparently, when I was little, I would never eat my mother’s cooking. And since that was my main source of food, I didn’t eat much. Everyone was worried I would stay scrawny and not ever grow. But take me out to eat or to a meal prepared by anyone other than my mother, and I ate like a sumo wrestler. Go figure.

Since I come from a Korean family, and perhaps it is an Asian thing, I grew up with most things in life revolving around food and eating. When eating breakfast, we would talk about what lunch would be. And same with lunch and what dinner would be. Every gathering was all about food. I suppose I was raised to be way too into food.

I started this blog to just jot down my constant thoughts about food. I may talk about what I ate on a particular day. Or I may review a restaurant. I may try out a new food item/product/gadget and muse upon it. If I cook something and it turns out well, I’ll share a recipe. Who knows? Let’s just roll with it. I’ll try to post pics too, but I can’t promise that this blog will be photo-heavy. I’ll try my darndest. And don’t poo-poo me if I occasionally go off on a non-food related topic. We all fall off the wagon sometimes.

When I had to come up with a name for this blog, I came up with foodzings. Which if I spelled it “correctly” should be foodsings, but then some confused soul may think I was referring to singing vegetables. My musings about food. Or better yet, my muzings about food, my foodzings. LET’S GRUB!
